    It's not only "there" but the scandal appears to extend to Democrats in Congress.

    I think Obama is just shaky on the the meaning of the word "corruption". In his defense, though, he is from Chicago where it is called "politics"...

    true that....

    I lived in Chicago for a very long year and was amazed at the corruption that the people there seemed to take for granted. Chicago was also the most racist city I've ever lived in and I've lived in quite a few all over the country, mostly in the south.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't singling out the Tea Party make this political targeting and constitute significantly more than "a smidgen" of corruption?

    So it wasn't "rogue agents in Cincinnati " ??

    Right-wing media are cherry-picking newly released emails from Judicial Watch to allege that the Washington D.C. office of the IRS initiated the flagging of Tea Party groups, omitting the full email chain that reveals the Cincinnati IRS office first flagged Tea Party applicants for tax-exempt status for further review.

On May 14, conservative group Judicial Watch released a batch of documents dating back to February 2010 that included a chain of email correspondence between the Cincinnati, Ohio Internal Revenue Service (IRS) office and the Washington D.C., based IRS office.
