Aplogizes....how quaint. Appears to me, we should be expanding the unemployment rolls AND jail cells by a large number.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Internal Revenue Service inappropriately flagged conservative political groups for additional reviews during the 2012 election to see if they were violating their tax-exempt status, a top IRS official said Friday.

Organizations were singled out because they included the words "tea party" or "patriot" in their applications for tax-exempt status, said Lois Lerner, who heads the IRS division that oversees tax-exempt groups.

In some cases, groups were asked for their list of donors, which violates IRS policy in most cases, she said.

"That was wrong. That was absolutely incorrect, it was insensitive and it was inappropriate. That's not how we go about selecting cases for further review," Lerner said at a conference sponsored by the American Bar Association.

"The IRS would like to apologize for that," she added.

Because the Gestapo always apologized when a private shot the wrong guy Rolleyes

But at first blush I agree with the OP that a simple apology, while nice, does not seem serious enough. Whoever the low level worker was should be fired and put up on charges.

I'm not sure how to take this.

I can't tell of the O administration is so sure of themselves that they feel they can "let this hit the national media" OR

if those in the administration are seeing that Benghazi isn't going away and are coming forward with other stuff to save themselves, OR

if it is just a coincidence. Shrug

You meant "put on administrative leave", didn't you?

and the EVIL of the O finally unraveling.

An IRS campaign to apply additional scrutiny to conservative groups went beyond targeting "Tea Party" and "patriot" groups to include those focused on government spending, the Constitution and several other broad areas.

The additional guidelines created by the agency were part of a timeline, obtained by Fox News, from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, which is looking into the controversial IRS practice. IRS officials apologized Friday for the scrutiny, but new information suggests senior leaders were apprised of the effort as early as 2011 despite public denials from the top.

Republican lawmakers have vowed to investigate and hold hearings, calling the revelations deeply troubling.

"The conclusion that the IRS came to is that they did have agents who were engaged in intimidation of political groups," Michigan Rep. Mike Rogers told "Fox News Sunday." "I don't care if you're a conservative, a liberal, a Democrat or a Republican, this should send a chill up your spine. It needs to have a full investigation."

The internal IG timeline shows a unit in the agency was looking at Tea Party and "patriot" groups dating back to early 2010. But it shows that list of criteria drastically expanding by the time a June 2011 briefing was held. It then included groups focused on government spending, government debt, taxes, and education on ways to "make America a better place to live." It even flagged groups whose file included criticism of "how the country is being run."

By early 2012, the criteria were updated to include organizations involved in "limiting/expanding government," education on the Constitution and Bill of Rights, and social economic reform.

BULLSHIT.
This came from the top. They can keep their scapegoat.

All points to the fact that the snakes in the marbled halls of politics were scared by the sudden activation of a true grass roots movement and relied on the the one tool that links all monarchies past and present: the tax collector.

Just wait til 2014 when OhBlowMecare kicks in full force. Those 190,000 enforcers the IRS hired will be on the prowl. Just what do you think the IRS will do with all that medical information they will have ready access to?

My statement still stands.
