5Cats,
Again, IF it's correct that Republican Rep. Darrell Issa requested the "narrow focus" on those organisations, and I don`t accept that as proven, then it shouldn`t be reflected onto Obama.

@broizfam: This is not about "an underling" it's about a concerted & coordinated discrimination based on political opinion!

The woman in charge of the IRS (at that time) OPENLY ADMITS to knowing about it... and letting it happen.

IRS Timeline Scroll down past the cartoons...

"1 March, 2010 - IRS officials start targeting organizations with "tea party", "patriot", and "9-12" in their names."

So...if an underling in a very large organization, who has outside affiliations, works with an outside affiliate to bring down the CEO (which is sort of what this can be seen as), it's the fault of the CEO? Actually, I don`t blame Russell George since I suspect he figured Issa just wanted specific information about groups claiming to be politically conservative. Of course, George could be lying.

>>>If, however, Reverend Al Sharpton made a specific request of the LAPD to "narrowly focus" on drugs sales by black people in Los Angeles, and they did so, would it then be okay when it blew up as a scandal to blame the Caucasian mayor of the city?
That's a bit more analogous to this story, at least as reported by The Hill.<<<

If the LAPD is so easily convinced to do something that we would most likely all agree is racist at its core then YES I would hold the leaders, including the mayor accountable.
