IRS commissioner: "Targeting" is a "pejorative" term

Acting IRS commissioner Steven Miller said his predecessor Douglas Shulman was not being untruthful when he denied before Congress that "targeting" of conservative groups was taking place, explaining that "targeting" is a "pejorative" term that implies political motivations, while the singling out of conservative groups at the IRS was driven by a desire to be more efficient in processing applications for tax exempt status.
