Local congressman wants IRS official’s home emails


Rep. Jim Jordan, R-Urbana, wants to search an IRS official’s home email for documents related to IRS targeting of tea party groups.

Jordan and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chair Darrell Issa, R-Calif., sent a letter to Lois Lerner last week requesting documents related to her job that she sent via her “Lois Home” msn.com email account. Lerner is head of the IRS’ exempt organizations division.

“Through the course of the investigation, we have learned that you sent documents related to your official duties from your official IRS e-mail account to an msn.com email account labeled “Lois Home,” the two wrote. “This raises some serious questions concerning your use of a non-official e-mail account to conduct official business.”

Issa and Jordan, who chairs the Oversight and Government Reform Committee’s subcommittee on Economic Growth, Job Creation and Regulatory Affairs, are investigating the IRS’ admission earlier this year that it gave extra scrutiny to tea party-affiliated groups who were applying for tax-exempt groups.
