Talk about blaming the victim.

Via NRCC:

Democrat Congressman Jim McDermott took the floor at today’s Ways and Means hearing and blamed the conservative groups that were improperly targeted by the IRS. According to McDermott, if they didn’t apply for tax-exempt status, they would have never been scrutinized.

Update: “I am going to deviate from my original question in response to what I just heard.”
