Acting IRS Commissioner Defends IRS Actions While "Accepting" IG Report

Inspector General suggested more investigations into IRS activity are still ongoing


The gallery at the House Weighs and Means Committee Friday had to be called to order after it burst into applause and nearly a standing ovation following an impassioned diatribe against the IRS by Pennsylvania Republican Rep. Mike Kelly.

Kelly took his time during the hearing on the IRS's targeting of conservatives to lambaste outgoing head Steven Miller, reminding Miller that while the IRS would like to chalk the organization's recent actions up to a mistake, regular Americans do not get that luxury when dealing with the IRS.
