More hearings expected in IRS probe

Thursday - 5/23/2013, 3:31pm  ET

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Lawmakers suggest their look into the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of conservative political groups is far from over.

Three days of congressional hearings have revealed plenty of wrongdoing within the IRS. But so far, there's been no evidence that anyone outside the agency authorized the targeting or even knew about it before a few weeks ago.

Still, leaders of the congressional committees probing the matter say they'll keep looking. Louisiana Rep. Charles Boustany, who chairs the House Ways and Means oversight subcommittee, says more congressional hearings are expected in June.

Congressional investigators have also begun interviewing IRS employees and Boustany says in the coming days, they plan to interview IRS workers in the Cincinnati office where agents singled out conservative groups for additional scrutiny.
