FOX News’ Chad Pergram tweeted some breaking developments late this afternoon regarding a new email dump from the ever-interesting Lois Lerner file.

The House Ways and Means Committee has released the email chain that details Lerner’s eagerness to target a sitting U.S. Senator with an IRS audit because she received an invitation he was attending.

Somewhat surprisingly, the Associated Press has picked up the story quickly.

The emails show former IRS official Lois Lerner mistakenly received an invitation to an event that was meant to go to Republican Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa. Grassley presumably received Lerner’s invitation.

The event organizer apparently offered to pay for Grassley’s wife to attend the event. In an email to another IRS official, Lerner suggests referring Grassley for an audit, saying it might be inappropriate for the group to pay for his wife.

The other IRS official waives her off, saying an audit would be premature.
