The former IRS officials at the center of the scandal that targeted Americans for their political beliefs are arguing, ahead of a Friday hearing in a federal class-action lawsuit brought against the agency, that their testimony be sealed out of fear their lives could be threatened if the testimony is made public – something the women should have considered before deciding to unfairly target Americans, Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin says in a recent column.
