The IRS Man Behind the Bonds Indictment

How often do you a see a long feature article on an IRS Special Agent? The New York Times had one on Sunday, profiling Jeff Novitzky, who's investigative work has led to the indictment of San Francisco slugger Barry Bonds on charges of perjury and obstruction of justice.
Among government officials and antidoping authorities, Mr. Novitzky is heralded as a pioneer. They credit him with helping to change how the illegal distribution of performance-enhancing drugs is prosecuted. They describe him as a tenacious and methodical investigator whose work has always held up in court.
