    the scandal?  They tried to do their job more efficiently. What I understand the IG to say is that they shouldn't have used organization names for separating out some applications from the others, not that they conspired in some way to step on Obama's political opponents. A statement like ""While IRS bureaucrats did use inappropriate criteria when choosing to go after "tea party" groups seeking tax exempt status . . "  gives way too much ground to the conspiracy theorists and scandal mongers. They weren't "going after" Tea Party groups. They were simply trying to manage a mountain of paper in some way that made sense to their achieving the purpose of their jobs.
