Stonewalled in Cincinnati: Scenes from the front lines of the @irsnews scandal  

— Josh Margolin (@JoshMargolin) May 20, 2013

Wow! This reads as though the IRS office in Cincinnati was moved somewhere behind the Iron Curtain when no one was looking!

Welcome to Cincinnati – Ground zero of the exploding IRS scandal.

Things started brewing earlier this month when Internal Revenue Serviceofficials in Washington first admitted conservative groups were targeted for extra scrutiny by tax bureaucrats in Ohio’s Queen City.

One of them, who asked not be named, told ABC News that security guardsdid remind employees of the official policy not to talk with the press – a warning cemented by the punch line “or risk losing our jobs.”

Even leaders of the local union that represents the IRS workers under fire took the admonition to heart, hanging up on reporters who wanted to ask questions about the scandal. One longtime IRS worker and union member called the response by the National Treasury Employees Union “dazzling.”

As we traveled the public hallways of the building – watched over bysecurity cameras – an armed uniformed police officer with the Federal Protective Service followed us. We were looking for a particular office—of someone who would not want to be seen talking to reporters–but chose to bypass it because of our official babysitter.
