Bill Henck: Inside the IRS, part 3

William Henck has worked inside the IRS Office of the Chief Counsel as an attorney for over 26 years. We posted his personal account, including his testimony to a retaliatory audit conducted by the IRS against him, this past February in “Inside the IRS” and followed up with Inside the IRS, part 2″ in May.

When we posted the second of Bill’s two items in May, I called and wrote IRS public affairs to ask for any comment the agency might have. None was forthcoming; the agency has maintained radio silence.

Now CBS12 News in West Palm Beach has followed up with a story that includes a cameo appearance by our friend Peter Schweizer (video below). Jeremy Scott takes note in the Forbes column “Whistleblower highlights undue influence at the IRS.”

Neither CBS12 News nor the Forbes column mentions the retaliatory audit to which Henck was subjected in the course of his efforts to raise the issues he has with the agency; Henck’s experience illuminates a deeply sinister aspect of the current controversy over the agency’s illegal activities.
