Source: Two 'rogue' workers principally behind IRS targeting of conservatives

Washington (CNN) - The Internal Revenue Service has identified two "rogue" employees in the agency's Cincinnati office as being principally responsible for "overly aggressive" handling of requests by conservative groups for tax-exempt status, a congressional source told CNN.

In a meeting on Capitol Hill, acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller described the employees as being "off the reservation," according to the source. It was not clear precisely what the alleged behavior involved.

    guess that was the ONLY thing that I liked about 'ol herman cain – 9 – 9 – 9 in other words, he most likely would have got rid of the IRS – and went clean across the board, with 9% taxes , no matter what your income was. same way w/ capital gains, business taxes, & the whole 9 yards. Imagine if we got rid of the worthless IRS. Yes, there would be a lot of people un-employed, but after the smoke cleared, the whole nation would have been better off. There would be so many "start up" Businesses, it would be pitiful, in this country.
