Ex-IRS Official Lois Lerner Won't Face Charges Over Tea-party Targeting

The Justice Department won't charge former IRS official Lois Lerner or anyone else at the IRS after concluding a probe into the targeting of tea-party and other conservative groups, reports said Friday. Lerner led the IRS division that subjected conservative nonprofits to extra scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status. A Justice Department probe found mismanagement but no evidence to support criminal prosecution, CNN said.
