More IRS Officials Called Before Congress Over Targeting Scandal

Plenty of explaining to do

More key players in the controversy over the Internal Revenue Service targeting of conservative groups will face lawmakers this week in a case that has triggered a partisan fight over how the agency reviews applicants seeking tax exemption.

The House of Representatives committee looking into IRS practices will question a Cincinnati-based employee who was in charge of examining Tea Party-linked applications and a Washington IRS official who played a role in overseeing her work.

Top officials at the IRS inspector general, an internal watchdog, will also appear, aides said late on Monday.
