The Obama administration's spin that only two rogue agents in Cincinnati, Ohio were behind the systematic harassment of conservative groups by the IRS, continues to unravel. NBC News reports that a number of targeted conservative groups received letters from IRS higher-ups from offices outside of Cincinnati -- including Washington DC. Moreover, one conservative group claims to have received a harassing IRS letter just three weeks ago.

Jay Sekulow is a one-time trial lawyer who represented the IRS in tax-exempt cases. Today, though, he represents 27 conservative groups singled out by the IRS.

Sekulow told NBC News: “We've dealt with 15 agents, including tax law specialists -- that's lawyers -- from four different offices, including (the) Treasury (Department) in Washington, D.C.,” Sekulow said. “So the idea that this is a couple of rogue agents in Cincinnati is not correct.”(continued)

It's almost impossible to throw someone under the bus, while they are still behind the wheel.
