Fox 19 is reporting tonight that four employees in the Cincinnati IRS office that targeted conservative groups say they were just following orders. Ben Swann reports:
However, despite the claim of just two employees being involved, FOX19 has exclusively learned from two separate sources that there could be at least four Cincinnati employees involved.
Those four employees — whose names we have chosen to withhold until they have been officially confirmed — have each worked in the IRS Exempt Organizations Department.
This is the same department that has admitted publicly to sending letters to Tea Party and other conservative organizations.
