In the final part of her exclusive interview with The Daily Caller, Becky Gerritson, the president of the Wetumka Tea Party in Alabama, spoke about how she feels for the frontline people who work at the IRS.

“The [frontline employees] don’t have any part in the decisions that are made,” Gerritson said. “They are just doing their job. They are trying to be good Americans, paying their taxes… But they are just doing their job, doing what they are told and probably fearful to not do what they are told.”

Gerritson also said she hopes to see more developments stemming from the hearings into the IRS targeting scandal.

“I really believe in standing for what is right and what is true,” Gerritson said. “I think if there are government agents out there that are having to act in ways that they know are illegal or unethical I would implore them to come out publicly… There are other government agencies involved, and I hope and pray that those agents would come out and share what has been happening and what they have been told to do.”
