IRS splurges on conference, Gilligan video

Congressional investigators are looking into the targeting of conservative organizations by IRS employees in Cincinnati. And the Inspector General will issue a report on how the IRS spent taxpayer money for expensive leadership conferences. CNN's Dana Bash reports on both investigations.

    Here is an idea for a "Keeping Them Honest" segment.

    Corporations routinely spend excessive amounts on executive conferences and Presidential Suites at the Shareholder expense. The outside consultants who proposed the videos, etc. probably have made them for numerous corporations.

    The IRS should NOT have followed the advice of these consultants. Yet, those who are eager to criticize the IRS should look at their attendance and conferences, etc. where speakers are paid much more than those who spoke at the IRS.

    Employees are often denied increases, benefits, etc. because of "tight" budgets and a "tough economy" while their executives play at conferences and Board Meetings at extravagant events.
