‘We need to find out where the hell the buck stops with this administration’

(Washington Times) – House Speaker John A. Boehner said Wednesday that it’ll take more than firings to clear up the IRS scandal — it’ll take someone ending up serving jail time.

“My question is, who’s going to jail over this scandal?” the Ohio Republican said at a press conference with fellow House Republican leaders Wednesday morning.

An internal audit released Tuesday said the IRS wrongly targeted conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status — something agency officials acknowledged late last week.

The agency has said it used “inappropriate” criteria for figuring out which tax-exempt groups it would give extra scrutiny to, but has denied it acted on political motives.

Mr. Boehner, though, said tax laws appear to have been broken.

“Someone made a conscious decision to harass and to hold up these requests for tax-exempt status,” he said. “I think we need to know who they are and whether they violated the law. Clearly, someone violated the law.”
