‘Horrible customer service’

"‘Horrible customer service’" Continued...

Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., pressed Miller on the disclosure of a 2008 confidential donor list belonging to the National Organization for Marriage. Miller called the leak “inadvertent” and claimed that the person behind it had been disciplined for not following procedures. NOM has announced it will sue the IRS over the incident.

Camp, the chair of the Ways and Means Committee, called the actions of the IRS just the latest example of a culture of cover-ups and political intimidation in the Obama administration.

“This systemic abuse cannot be fixed with just one resignation,” Camp said. “And, as much as I expect more people need to go, the reality is this is not a personnel problem. This is a problem of the IRS being too large, too powerful, too intrusive, and too abusive of honest, hardworking taxpayers.”
