Michelle Obama 'once dated inspector general at the center of IRS investigation tea party scandal', lawmaker claims

A young Michelle Robinson, the future first lady of the United States, may have dated Treasury Department Inspector General J. Russell George at Harvard Law School, a new report claims.

George, 49, has testified in two congressional hearings about the IRS's unethical targeting of conservative organizations with special scrutiny after they applied for tax-exempt status.

The revelation of a previous link to Michelle Obama came in a lengthy interview with George - published a week after the IRS scandal was brought to light.
