Former IRS Commissioner Shulman: I visited the White House for “the Easter Egg Roll”

IRS commissioner Doug ShulmanWhy did former IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman visit the White House 118 times in 2010 and 2011? At least one time was for the Easter Egg Roll.

While testifying before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee — as part of the probe into the IRS targeting of conservative groups — Rep. Gerald Connolly (D-Va.) asked Shulman why he visited the White House so often during the two-year period.

“Um, the Easter Egg Roll,” he replied, apparently making an ill-timed joke.

Shulman then went on to list other reasons he had visited the White House, including the IRS budget and helping the Department of Education modify the application process for financial aid.

Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) was the first Congressman to bring up the IRS chief’s numerous visits to the White House, information Jordan said he got from the White House visitors’ log.

“I’m not familiar with that number,” Shulman protested.

“It’s straight from the White House log!” Jordan replied.
