House steps up IRS probe over missing e-mails

•, Gregory Korte and Fredreka Schouten

The missing e-mails have rekindled a 13-month-old controversy over the IRS' treatment of conservative groups. The IRS says a computer crash destroyed e-mails to and from former Exempt Organizations Director Lois Lerner during the time period when the IRS was first starting to hold up tax exemption applications from Tea Party groups.

Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp, R-Mich, said Monday that House Republicans were "simply not going to accept the IRS claim that these documents are not recoverable." He called on the Obama administration to order the release of any e-mails Lerner may have sent to the White House or other agencies.
