Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn. chair of the Tea Party Caucus, speaks on Capitol Hill in Washington, Thursday, May 16, 2013, during a news conference with Tea Party leaders to discuss the IRS targeting Tea Party groups. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas is at left. Dozens of tea party groups and other conservative organizations of the kind subjected to improper scrutiny by the Internal Revenue Service operated with small budgets and rarely displayed overt partisan activities, according to an Associated Press review of public tax filings by 93 such activist groups. A few groups built million-dollar operations and political ties that could have been legitimate grounds for IRS investigation, tax law experts said. (AP Photo/Molly Riley) less
