A federal judge has placed the IRS under the microscope once again, ordering the agency to name who specifically took part in the targeting of conservative groups.
U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton is also demanding the IRS reveal which Tea Party groups were targeted and why, as well as what steps have been put in place to ensure it doesn’t happen again.
The right-leaning watchdog Judicial Watch also praised Walton’s decision. Chris Farrell, the group’s director of investigations and research, said the judge “accomplished more with one ruling than all of the rest of the federal government — all three branches — over the last six years.”
