CINCINNATI A Republican senator and a congressman from Ohio say the key question about the Internal Revenue Service's handling of conservative groups is who in the Obama administration was involved.

Sen. Rob Portman and Rep. Steve Chabot spoke Wednesday evening to a gathering of tea party activists in Cincinnati. Cincinnati has been a focus, or "ground zero," as one tea party leader called it, after disclosures that agency employees there subjected conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status to special scrutiny.

Chabot says investigations are still unfolding, and it's important to follow the facts and not to overreach. He and Portman both say the question that needs to be answered is "how high up?" did the policy go.

The Obama administration has said no senior officials were involved in targeting.
