WASHINGTON, March 11 (UPI) -- Former Internal Revenue Service director Lois Lerner's emails show a political agenda, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., said Tuesday.

Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, released a 141-page report, Roll Call said. Democrats on the panel did not sign off on the report.

The report quotes emails between Lerner and others at the IRS to suggest that she had a political agenda, Roll Call said. On one occasion, she forwarded an article on "dark money" from the left-leaning muckraking magazine Mother Jones.

In one email, Lerner said "these guys are itching for a Constitutional challenge," suggesting that conservative political action committees were eager to be denied exempt status so they could wage a court fight.
