Senate report on IRS scrutiny of Tea Party-related nonprofits finds "no evidence of political bias," but also criticizes action as "inappropriate".
"A Senate investigative panel on Friday confirmed that the Internal Revenue Service used inappropriate methods to scrutinize tax-exempt groups but said it found 'no evidence of IRS political bias' in the agency’s actions. In its 228-page report, the Democrat-led Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations also criticized the IRS’s independent watchdog for allegedly failing to make clear that the agency targeted more than just conservative groups." -- Josh Hicks, the Washington Post
