The original allegation was one of several in a letter from J. Russell George, the inspector general who oversees the IRS, to Grassley. For the first time, George revealed claims that IRS officials targeted political candidates for audits, and that, separately, donor or candidate tax information was improperly accessed or disclosed.
To date, the IRS scandal has focused mainly on the agency's practice of targeting conservative groups for additional scrutiny as they applied for nonprofit status.
And for the first time, the letter also raised questions about the Justice Department's role in allegations of IRS misconduct.
In one case, George said in his letter, "we presented evidence of a willful unauthorized access to the Department of Justice, but the case was declined for prosecution."

It was just a matter of time, but now it looks clear that the IRS and Dept of Justice were in cahoots in these improper audits.
Not only did the IRS improperly audit conservative groups seeking nonprofit status, they were meddling in the records of donors and candidates as well. Again, the DoJ refused to prosecute the findings of the Inspector General.
Holder is a true scumbag. Now, did Obama know of Holder's exploits?
Really, do you need to actually ask? As the dirt continues to be dug up on all this, it's likely only a matter of a little more time.
