IRS Targeting Broader Than Disclosed

Acting Internal Revenue Service chief Danny Werfel says "inappropriate screening of groups seeking tax-exempt status was broader and lasted longer than was previously disclosed," the AP reports.

Werfel said he "discovered inappropriate and wide-ranging criteria in lists screeners use to single out groups for careful examinations. He did not specify what terms were on the lists."

The Wall Street Journal reports he said "it appears so far that no IRS employee committed intentional wrongdoing, and there's no evidence that anyone outside the IRS steered its actions. That counters some GOP lawmakers' charges that the operation was directed by the White House."
