IRS Admits to Another Parody Video

The IRS admitted to lawmakers that it produced another pricey parody video for an agency conference at a cost of roughly $10,000.

The video, which spoofs the Donald Trump reality show "The Apprentice," shows IRS officials discussing ways to cut training costs for its Small Business/Self-Employed division, which was hosting the conference. The House Ways and Means Committee released the video Friday.

Rep. Charles Boustany Jr. (R-La.), who heads the committee's Oversight subpanel, said the latest video was "another example of abuse and waste" at the agency.
