    Lois Lerner, the director of the I.R.S. division that oversees tax-exempt groups, acknowledged that the agency had singled out nonprofit applicants with the terms “Tea Party” or “patriots” in their titles in an effort to respond to a surge in applications for tax-exempt status between 2010 and 2012.

    She insisted that the move was not driven by politics, but she added, “We made some mistakes; some people didn’t use good judgment.”

    If they were doing it to other groups, they needed to keep their big mouth closed with a freaking apology (duh!) before an investigation even happened and/or they should have made it known right then that other groups were targeted as well.

    I still can't get over that the came on cameras and apologized!  WTH?!?
