Former Internal Revenue Service Commissioner Douglas Shulman said that he was "not personally responsible" for the agency's practice of placing elevated scrutiny on conservative groups that applied for nonprofit status, but that he regrets it occurred during his tenure.
"I certainly am not personally responsible for creating a list that had inappropriate criteria on it. What I know, with the full facts that are out, is from the inspector general's report, which doesn't say I'm responsible for that," Shulman said during a Senate Finance Committee hearing Tuesday. "With that said, this happened on my watch and I very much regret that it happened on my watch."
Shulman, who served as IRS commissioner from 2008 to 2012, appeared before the Senate panel with outgoing Acting Commissioner Steven Miller and Treasury Inspector General J. Russell George on Tuesday. Both Shulman and Miller have said that the agency acted inappropriately in how it reviewed groups applying for tax-exempt status.

"Got caught up in the moment, thank goodness Khyati is okay," Miguel tweeted afterward.

It is what it is...but maybe next time she will learn the words to the whole song when she is asked to sing the NATIONAL ANTHEM!
Alexis Normand probably won't be getting requests to sing "The Star-Spangled Banner" anytime soon.
During Saturday's Memorial Cup game, the Canadian singer severely distorted the U.S. national anthem, stumbling through the lyrics and even pausing at times as she seemed to forget full phrases. Fortunately, audience members at the Canadian ice hockey tournament were good sports and helped Normand finish the song.
Normand followed her horrible rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" with a much better version of "O Canada," the Canadian national anthem. The May 18 match got underway, and the Halifax Mooseheads went on to triumph 7-4 over the visiting Portland Winterhawks from Oregon.
Westboro Baptist Church has radical beliefs, and pulling away from those after decades must be hard...just ask Libby Phelps Alvarez, the granddaughter of the pastor.
The house was empty, just as Libby Phelps had planned. Slipping inside that afternoon four years ago, she felt as if her heart would burst through her chest.
She peeked through the curtains, terrified that her aunt and uncle across the street would notice the cars parked in the driveway with doors and trunks open.
Moving quickly with three co-workers by her side, she shoved clothes, high school yearbooks, photo albums, a pillow and an old TV into boxes and suitcases. She felt like a thief in her own home. And, in a way, she was.
