Is the IRS hassling Larry Conners?
 by Joe Holleman

Much news is being generated by allegations that the Internal Revenue Service recently has targeted conservative groups.

Now KMOV-TV (Channel 4) anchorman Larry Conners wonders if he is being targeted by the IRS because of tough questions he asked President Barack Obama during an interview in April 2012. 

Monday night, Conners posted his concerns on Facebook. The post begins:

"Shortly after I did my April 2012 interview with President Obama, my wife, friends and some viewers suggested that I might need to watch out for the IRS.
"I don't accept 'conspiracy theories,' but I do know that almost immediately after the interview, the IRS started hammering me."

In conclusion, Conners wrote:

"What I don't like to even consider ... is that because of the Obama interview … the IRS put a target on me.

Can I prove it? At this time, no. But it is a fact that since that April 2012 interview ... the IRS has been pressuring me."
