Wednesday, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee got their chance to question key IRS players on the political targeting of nonprofit applications. U.S. Representative Cynthia Lummis is a member of the Oversight Committee and didn't hold her tongue when addressing those affiliated with the scandal.

The key players that were present for the questioning included Neal Wolin, Deputy Secretary at the Department of Treasury; J. Russell George, Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration; Douglas Shulman, Former Commissioner of the IRS; and Lois Lerner, IRS Director of Tax Exempt Organizations. Lerner left the hearing promptly after pleading the Fifth Amendment against self-incrimination. Video of part of the hearing can be viewed here.
