The scandal surrounding a $4.1 million training conference staged by the Internal Revenue Service in 2010 can’t be fixed by recommendations in a report by the Treasury Inspector General, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said during a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing on Thursday.

“Mr. Inspector General, we can adopt all the recommendations you could possibly conceive of,” Gowdy said. “I just tell you it strikes me – and maybe it’s just me – but it strikes me as a cultural, systemic, character, moral issue.”
