Feds Charge IRS Workers with Theft

Federal prosecutors have indicted 24 Internal Revenue Service employees in Tennessee with theft, the Tennessean reports. The employees were charged with allegedly lying to get unemployment, food stamps, welfare and housing vouchers. The investigation originated with the U.S. Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, which has been focusing specifically on IRS employees who illegally draw government benefits as part of what they call “Operation Double Dip.”
