On Wednesday, Levin wrote to George, questioning his office's statements that the scope of the original audit was limited to conservative terms because it was responding to a request from Republican Representative Darrell Issa.

"There is increasing evidence that the May 14, 2013 audit was fundamentally flawed and that your handling of it has failed to meet the necessary test of objectivity and forthrightness," Levin wrote in the letter.

Levin said TIGTA's audit examined a group of tax-exempt applicants broader than the conservative groups it was requested to investigate. He cited several pages from the May report suggesting it studied whether any groups were targeted and delayed while seeking tax exempt status.

Democrat Representative Gerald Connolly of Virginia said the new information about progressives on the BOLO list raises concerns about testimony George gave to Congress last month.

In a letter to George, Connolly said George's sworn statements "were at best incomplete, if not misleading."

1. Democrat Representative Gerald Connolly

That would be Democratic

I hope this finally brings down Grand Theft Auto Issa -call the fire brigade for this LIAR LIAR pants on FIRE.
GTAIssa is a criminal.

Dems should demand the same airplay from the same folks who were screaming scandal.
The real scandal is that Issa is still in the House - M$Greedia is way too silent on this.
