Congressman Tom Reed on IRS scandal: “Tip of the iceberg”

The first hearing into the IRS scandal concluded Friday, but Republican lawmakers are promising more questions will be asked about the tax agency’s targeting of conservative groups.

Ousted acting IRS chief Steven Miller told the House Ways and Means Committee that foolish mistakes had been made.

Area Congressman Tom Reed, who serves on the committee, accused Miller of being less than forthcoming about the agency’s practices.

Reed says he believes the revelations are just the beginning, and that the committee will uncover a culture in the IRS that targets individuals based on political beliefs.
