We have a confirmation tonight the scandal involving IRS could be widely beyond the targeting of conservative political groups.
Those groups, of course, are seeking taxes out of statues.
CNN has learned at least one former air marshal who publically criticized and then sued the US government as being interviewed by the IRS Inspector General's office.
Why? Because he was suddenly audited by the IRS after speaking out against the management and the politics of a federal agency.
Keeping the monistic could mean the investigation into IRS extending to how the agency treated not only tea party groups but other individuals who's spoken out against the government.
