House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) revealed new testimony from IRS employees on CNN's State of The Union on Sunday. According to transcribed excerpts released by the Committee, a Cincinnati IRS employee made it clear they were told by Washington, D.C. personnel to give extra scrutiny to Tea Party groups:

    Q: In early 2010, was there a time when you became aware of applications that referenced Tea Party or other conservative groups?

    A: In March of 2010, I was made aware.

    ******

    Q: Okay.  Now, was there a point around this time period when [your supervisor] asked you to do a search for similar applications?

    A: Yes.

    Q: To the best of your recollection, when was this request made?

    A: Sometime in early March of 2010.

In other news, the Sun - once again - rose in the East.  The consensus among experts is that the Sun will set in the West.

And that the snooze media will try not to report this.
