WASHINGTON (AP) — A government watchdog says senior Internal Revenue Service officials enjoyed luxury hotel rooms, free drinks and free food at a $4.1 million training conference in 2010, one of many expensive gatherings the agency held over a three-year period.

The agency's inspector general says in a new report that a total of 132 IRS officials received room upgrades at the 2010 conference in Anaheim, Calif. One official stayed five nights in a room that regularly goes for $3,500 a night. Another stayed four nights in a room that regularly goes for $1,499 a night.

The report is due out Tuesday as the agency continues to come under fire for targeting conservative groups during the 2010 and 2012 elections. The Associated Press obtained a copy of the report ahead of its release.
