Description

The same day a documentary premiered that featured government whistleblower and Federal Air Marshal P. Jeffrey Black, an Internal Revenue Service agent came to Black's door informing him that he was being audited. Coincidence? Black doesn't think so. Now he's taken his story to two congressional committees and the Treasury Department Inspector General, a sign that the IRS will face new scrutiny after its admission that employees improperly singled out applications for tax-exempt status by tea party groups for extra review.

Black retired from the Federal Air Marshal Service in 2010 after taking complaints about his agency to Congress. Six years earlier, he testified to a closed-door hearing into his complaints of ineptitude, favoritism and problems keeping marshals on flights. The same year he retired, he appeared in "Please Remove Your Shoes," a documentary critical of the airline security measures travelers endure on every trip. An IRS agent showed up at his door "almost to the hour" that the movie began to play in a Washington, DC theater, he said.
