U.S. Senate investigators split on party lines over IRS scandal

Republican investigators disagreed, defending the job done by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) last year in reviewing the IRS’ handling of tax-exemption applications received from political groups. Last year’s controversy stemmed from allegations that IRS agents had singled out applications for tax-exempt status from the Tea Party movement and other conservative groups for extra scrutiny.
