News Anchor Fears IRS Targeted Him Following Obama Interview
Is he being punished for asking the wrong questions?
Larry Connors, a veteran local news anchor at KMOV Channel 4 in St. Louis, says that the Internal Revenue Service has been targeting him since an April 2012 interview he conducted with President Obama—a fact that he dismissed as coincidence until the recent reports about the IRS targeting conservative groups.
"Shortly after I did my April 2012 interview with President Obama, my wife, friends and some viewers suggested that I might need to watch out for the IRS. I don't accept 'conspiracy theories', but I do know that almost immediately after the interview, the IRS started hammering me," Connors wrote on his Facebook page late Monday night.
Connors did not specify how the IRS has been "hammering" him. He did not immediately respond to a request for clarification (see Update below).
