A “lookout list” of words led to inquiries for all types of groups, not just conservative-leaning political ones.

hhhmmm... interesting how once *FACTS* come out, virtually *ALL* of Fox Noise talking heads and *ALL* Republicans, led by Rep. Darrell Issa are found to be lying. No surprise here, but just wait for the comical excuses by the minions who believe their falsehoods.

The ginned-up "scandals" have done nothing but make the GOP look like fools. Benghazi, NSA, the IRS. All turn out not to be scandals at all, but that's all the Republicans have focused on for almost a year. Except for trying to repeal Obamacare for the 30 something time. Costing the taxpayers scores of millions of dollars and accomplishing less than nothing. What a legacy.

The real question is why the Inspector General decided to cherry-pick such a tiny sample instead of doing a bit larger random sample for their analysis. I thought the IG was above politics.

avejoecon - You can make up stories if you choose, but that does not make them true. Your statement "the IRS already ADMTTED to going after ONLY conservative groups" is false. Pure and simple. Not true. Plus... for your information, "admtted" is actually spelled 'admitted'.
