Press Secretary Jay Carney defended the Obama administration as it faces scrutiny for the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups. Today on The Five, Eric Bolling voiced his concern, saying, “2011, I was pretty vocal against four more years of President Obama. […] I don’t know if it’s coincidence or not but I did get an IRS audit in 2012 for my 2011 tax returns. I’m not sure if there’s any correlation.”

Andrea Tantaros commented, “It’s the Chicago way. [Obama] said he would change D.C. and the way they do business. Boy, has he ever.”

The Justice Department announced it will launch a criminal investigation to see if the IRS did anything wrong. The head of the agency, Steven Miller, spoke for the first time today saying that mistakes were made but they were unrelated to politics.
