Karl Rove Says the IRS Did What Congressional Democrats Wanted

Conservative groups were unfairly scrutinized in 2012


Karl Rove is linking congressional Democrats to the IRS scandal, saying that the agency was just doing what some on the Hill wanted.

"The administration is blaming this on low-level bureaucrats in Cincinnati and that turned out not to be true. We know people at the [IRS central headquarters] in Washington were involved. But we are missing something else. Remember, they were doing what people on Capitol Hill wanted them to do," Rove said on Fox News on Tuesday.
