The Josephson Institute conducted a survey of top IRS managers and nearly half said they would use their positions to intimidate personal enemies. A majority said they would look the other way if they saw wrongdoing, and many condoned lying to the news media and government officials to protect themselves.

Sen. Steve Symms (R-Idaho) saw a copy of the survey, which had been leaked to a group called the National Coalition of IRS Whistleblowers. After reviewing the survey, Symms promised he would look into the ethical climate at the IRS.
