Livestream: Senate Hearing On IRS Scandal

You can watch here

Ace notes so far

The Democrats only want to discuss whether the 501(c)4 rules should be tightened, that is, they don't want to talk about politically targeting at all. They are coming very, very close to flat-out justifying Obama's IRS' actions.
Update: Sen John Cornyn (R-TX) just discussed Texans who were targeted by the IRS.

The below is a new video from him regarding them:

Oregon's Dem Sen Wyden: "If political groups don't want hassles from government, they shouldn't go to government asking for tax-exempt status"

Jerk

Update II: 12:22 PM - Hearing in recess for 20 minutes.

Update III: It's all about Citizen's United!!! This hearing is going nowhere.

Update IV: Sen Hatch (R-Utah) to the rescue after the garbage about Citizens United. Hatch pointed out that libs always want disclosure of donors, except for the unions 501(c5)'s and that Democrats will always exempt them.
