Conservative group praises judge’s decision to publicize IRS officials in targeting scandal
AUGUST 21, 2017
The IRS targeting scandal emerged in 2013 when former IRS official Lois Lerner admitted that the agency was providing extra scrutiny to conservative groups applying for nonprofit status, prolonging their applications for months and even years.
Chris Farrell, director of investigations at Judicial Watch, which is involved in a lawsuit with the IRS, told Fox News the IRS owes those targeted “real accountability.”
“This was creepy, chilling stuff,” Farrell said. “Judge Walton has accomplished more with one ruling than all the rest of the federal government — all three branches — over the last six years.”
