Congress will be calling the IRS’ chief counsel to testify about the agency’s admitted targeting of conservative groups, looking for any coordination between the IRS and the Obama administration.
There are only two political appointees at the sprawling Internal Revenue Service, and an important one has yet to be heard from about the inappropriate scrutiny given to certain conservative organizations that were seeking tax-exempt status.
With Congress back from summer recess, Republican lawmakers plan to call the IRS chief counsel, William J. Wilkins, to testify this fall about what he knew and when he knew it. He hasn’t yet talked publicly about decisions made by the scandal-plagued agency’s Exempt Organizations division.
Because his post is just one of two political jobs out of 90,000 at the IRS – the other is the commissioner – some critics draw a line, real or imagined, between Wilkins and the targeting of tea-party organizations and conservative groups. Conservative groups have made circumstantial allegations, trying to link him to a polemic pastor or claiming without proof that he was involved in creating criteria used to hold up tea-party applications.
