Carson right to question IRS motives

Internal Revenue Service

Having read two of Dr. Ben Carson's books and seen him on television on many occasions, I find it hard to believe that his concerns about the Internal Revenue Service audit emanate from feelings of self-importance ("Ben Carson says he was targeted by IRS over his beliefs," Oct. 3). His career has served as an inspiration to many, not a demonstration of egotism.

Given the news over the last year about the appropriateness of IRS actions, many people would be asking the same questions as Dr. Carson.

    For reporter Jean Marbella to take shots at Dr. Ben Carson for his political views makes her look like she is not too bright — particularly in a Baltimore-based (albeit liberal) newspaper ("Carson is quoting Lenin to criticize Obamacare. Is the reference bogus?" Oct. 12).
