Roel Campos, the lawyer for Holly Paz, told senior House Republicans that their recent letter charging that Paz had offered testimony contradicted by other IRS staffers only exacerbated the harassment his client has faced. Paz and her family, Campos said, have faced intimidating phone calls and visits at their home “because of prior inaccurate reports and allegations.” Paz’s sons were forced to hide in their room after a process server attempted to push his way into the family house, and someone asserting to be a reporter also followed one of her sons after he got off his school bus. “These are but a few examples of the many forms of harassment to which the Paz family has been subjected,” Campos wrote in a letter dated Tuesday to House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio). “Your letter and accompanying press release recklessly adds to the danger and damage to Ms. Paz and her family.” [The Hill]
