Archivist: IRS didn't follow law on lost emails
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The nation's top archivist says the Internal Revenue Service did not follow the law when it failed to report the loss of records belonging to a senior IRS executive.
David Ferriero says federal law requires that government agencies must notify the National Archives and Records Administration when it becomes aware that federal records are lost.
Ferriero says his organization learned of the lost records about three years after the fact.
Ferriero was testifying Tuesday before the House Oversight and Government Reform committee about the loss of emails belonging to a key figure in the congressional IRS tea party investigation.
