NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Congressional frustration with efforts to get to the bottom of IRS targeting of conservative groups plainly shows the tax agency is dangerous to civil liberties, irrevocably broken and corrupting national politicians.Investigators on Capitol Hill and in the Justice Department may be able to finger a few malefactors but that won't fix the IRS. The union representing IRS employees is deeply involved in the management of the agency, its leaders have the self-pronounced goal of doing whatever it takes to defeat conservative politicians, it consults regularly with leading Democratic politicians -- including President Obama -- on electoral strategy, and it has cultivated a culture that encourages employees to exercise discretion in ways harmful to free speech and association.
