Who Is Carter Hull?

Last night, the Wall Street Journal reported on transcripts of congressional interviews with IRS employees.  In them, the name "Carter Hull" -- an IRS lawyer in Washington -- surfaces as someone in DC who oversaw the targeting in Ohio and even suggested some of the questions used to harass conservative groups applying for tax-exempt status. 

Here is a technical instruction document Hull co-authored, and his name appears as the author of articles and e-books on tax matters.  Here is his Facebook page.

He is a graduate of a private Quaker school -- and I would guess from his age and his attendance at a private boarding/day school that he attended boarding school back in an era when that experience was largely reserved for young people from fairly affluent circumstances.

This is also a person obviously of some experience and knowledge with the tax law, who would have clearly known the targeting operation was wrong.

No doubt we will all be learning more about Mr. Hull soon.
