Also, saying "The IG - a Republican appointee w/ a solid work reputation - testified last week that his investigators uncovered no corruption and no political involvement" is a gross misrepresentation of the facts. You are being intentionally dishonest.
WHY TIGTA DID THE AUDIT
TIGTA initiated this audit based on concerns expressed by members of Congress. The overall objective of this audit was to determine whether allegations were founded that the IRS:
1) targeted specific groups applying for tax-exempt status,
2) delayed processing of targeted groups’ applications, and
3) requested unnecessary information from targeted groups.
Removing her from her current position is not enough. She SHOULD NOT be placed in another position.
Benghazi is a non-scandal, as is this.

All this Colleen Kelley stuff is new to me and I haven't been able to read up on it. Will someone go step by step through it so I can see how she relates to this?
1) Colleen Kelley met with POTUS
and get to
#) ...employees in Cincinnati, OH office targeted conservative groups
You really believe that the IRS targeting people for scrutiny for their political believes (regardless of where the directive came from) is NOT a scandal????
This is a direct attack on the First amendment, again REGARDLESS WEATHER THERE IS A WH CONNECTION OR NOT.
I am quite sure if during Bush's administration, the IRS had targeted left leaning groups, your feelings on this matter would turn 180 degrees. What a hack you are.
It's not a scandal that affects Obama

It's not a scandal that affects Obama. It's not going in the history books. It's a blip. It has significance it just isn't a gamechanger as far as Obama's ability to govern.
Well Perry Mason, let's play that very befuddling game the other way. Colleen met with Nelson, Weiss, POTUS, and FLOTUS. How about linking us to the inclusive transcripts of those get-togethers.
That's not what you said. You said quite clearly that it was not a scandal at all.
It seems you are quite OK with those in power silencing the opposition.
Conclusions? So early in the process? Without proof?
Are you paid for your efforts here?
Or is the Administration just lucky to have a lad so devoted to it's defense?
Doesn't work that way.
As of yet there is no evidence that the White House had anything to do w/ the IRS scandal. My assessment is based on what we know currently. Should anything major change, you can expect my prognostications to change, too.
Nor does it work the other way until investigations have run their course.
Then again, you knew that before you made an arse of yourself, posing the rhetorical. Didn't you now?
What about Sarah Hall Ingram?
Am I the only person on this board who thinks Sarah Hall Ingram has a role in this?
You're likely correct. If she was overseeing the dept that authorized the targeting, she should be fired, too. Don't see any more to it than that.
