IRS victims testify as new agency scandal emerges
WASHINGTON (AP) - June 4, 2013 (WPVI) -- The chairman of a House committee investigating the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservative organizations is telling members of those groups that they were singled out simply for their beliefs.
House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp made the remark as leaders of six of those groups told his panel Tuesday that for years they had been mistreated by IRS agents who asked intrusive questions and delayed their applications for tax-exempt status.
Camp, a Michigan Republican, said those appearing Tuesday were a small sampling of groups the government singled out because of their beliefs.
The top Democrat on the panel, Rep. Sander Levin of Michigan, said the groups were owed an apology and that lawmakers were committed to correcting the problem.
