WASHINGTON (AP) -- Congressional investigators say the Internal Revenue Service has lost more emails connected to the tea party investigation.<br />
The IRS said last Friday it had lost an untold number of emails when Lois Lerner's computer crashed in 2011. Lerner used to head the division that handles applications for tax-exempt status.<br />
On Tuesday, two key lawmakers said the IRS has also lost emails from additional officials whose computers crashed. Among them was Nikole Flax, who was chief of staff to Lerner's boss, then-deputy commissioner Steven Miller.<br />
Miller later became acting IRS commissioner, but was forced to resign last year after the agency acknowledged that agents had improperly scrutinized tea party and other conservative groups when they applied for tax-exempt status.<br />
The IRS did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
