IRS Scandal Widens: Almost 90 Agents Involved In Targeting Conservatives

Just a couple of rogue agents?  Not anymore.

Gateway Pundit has the latest rundown of what more we're learning in the IRS scandal.
** Nearly 500 conservative groups targeted
** At least 5 pro-Israel groups targeted
** Constitutional groups targeted
** Groups that criticized Obama administration were targeted
** At least two pro-life groups targeted
** A Texas voting-rights group was targeted
** Conservative activists and businesses were targeted
Now add to that 88 IRS employees took part in this targeting of conservatives.

Here's more. When they're not acting as the political gestapo of the Obama Regime, IRS employees are using taxpayer dollars to make little video projects, like the Star Trek one that surfaced earlier this year (Examiner).

In the latest black eye to the Internal Revenue Service, the agency provided Congress on Friday with another video featuring its employees, this one showing about a dozen of them dancing on a stage.
The video of the IRS workers practicing their dance moves, which lasts just under three minutes, comes weeks after it was revealed that agency workers produced two other videos, parodying the "Star Trek" and "Gilligan's Island" TV shows. It also comes with the IRS under fire by lawmakers and the Obama administration for targeting conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status for tough scrutiny.
All three videos were provided in response to a request by a senior member of the House Ways and Means Committee, Rep. Charles Boustany, R-La.
"The outrage toward the IRS is only growing stronger," said Boustany, who chairs the Ways and Means oversight subcommittee. "Clearly this is an agency where abuse and waste is the norm and not the exception."
And the big question that's still unanswered: Why was the IRS director visiting the White House almost 160 times?
