Delaware state revenue officials are refusing to cooperate with a congressional inquiry into the disclosure of tea party favorite Christine O'Donnell's federal tax records, The Washington Times reports.
The tax snooping incident under review by Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa occurred during O'Donnell's unsuccessful 2010 race to fill the Senate seat vacated by Vice President Joe Biden.
On March 9, 2010, the IRS filed a lien on a home once owned by O'Donnell, but later admitted the lien was placed in error.
The Washington Times broke the story last month that O'Donnell's tax records had been accessed by David Smith, an investigator with Delaware's Division of Revenue, an action that prompted the inquiry by the U.S. Treasury Department.
