Acting IRS chief: Agency’s targeting of conservative groups ‘absolutely not illegal’ [video]; Update: ‘Not my area’ to know if it’s illegal

Twitter’s curse jar is going to be mighty full after Friday’s House Ways and Means Committee hearing on the IRS’ targeting of conservative groups. The unreal just keeps on comin’.

Yes, acting IRS commissioner Steven Miller testified that the “be on the lookout” list maintained by the IRS to target conservative groups was “absolutely not illegal.” Oh, it “shouldn’t happen” and stuff, he said in response to Rep. Tom Price’s question. But “horrible customer service” isn’t illegal, guys!

Hey, can one of the congressmen grilling Miller follow up with this question?

Update:

How ’bout that? Now Miller just isn’t sure. It’s not his “area.”
