Source: Two 'rogue' workers principally behind IRS targeting of conservatives


LINK

quote:

Washington (CNN) -- The Internal Revenue Service has identified two "rogue" employees in the agency's Cincinnati office as being principally responsible for "overly aggressive" handling of requests by conservative groups for tax-exempt status, a congressional source told CNN.

In a meeting on Capitol Hill, acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller described the employees as being "off the reservation," according to the source. It was not clear precisely what the alleged behavior involved. Miller said the staffers have already been disciplined, according to another source familiar with Miller's discussions with congressional investigators.

The second source said Miller emphasized that the problem with IRS handling of tax-exempt status for tea party groups was not limited to these two employees.

Already a thread on this.

Oh....and

Do you honestly think 2 rank and file employees from Cincy caused all of this outrage and kept it quiet since 2010?

Over 500 groups have come forward so far - some groups are currently tied up in litigation with the IRS. LINK

I like what another poster said in the other thread.

"If this is true, they were the hardest working government employees ever"

I've said it numerous times. This likely didn't come from the top but hopefully it helps kill the idea that government workers are inherently disinterested.

I wonder why that thread is not on the first page. That's big news.

Oh, that's right. It ruined the circle jerk.

How cute. LINK

quote:

The director of the Internal Revenue Service division under fire for singling out conservative groups sent a 2012 letter under her name to one such group, POLITICO has learned. The March 2012 letter was sent to the Ohio-based American Patriots Against Government Excess (American PAGE) under the name of Lois Lerner, the director of the Exempt Organizations Division...at the time of the letter, the group was in the midst of the application process for tax-exempt nonprofit status — a process that would stretch for nearly three years and involve queries for detailed information on its social media activity, its organizational set-up, bylaws, membership and interactions with political officials. The letter threatened to close American PAGE’s case file unless additional information was received within 60 days.

1. Disregard Germans...I've been on the golf course all day. And don't ask me how I shot.

2. So, the IRS is trying to cover their ass? Who would've thought.

I just saw this Miller on Cavuto and he was walking out of his office running from reporters. He looked like a lying POS. Why wouldn't he stop and at least fake a statement that it is horrible and he is looking into it.

re: Source: Two 'rogue' workers principally behind IRS targeting of conservatives


You don't really believe this do you? You don't think their supervisors and managers saw what they were doing? What about the D.C. office?

I'm not saying Obama was in on it but to think only two people are responsible for this is borderline delusional.

Let's just ignore this part of the article you posted right?

re: Source: Two 'rogue' workers principally behind IRS targeting of conservatives


Guess what?

If I have two "rogue" employees disclosing medical records, discriminating against certain types of patients, or just generally not following protocol for certain exams and procedures...it's MY FAULT!

I don't come here bashing normally like the rest of the circle jerk crew. But implying that such an enormous failure in protocol can simply be attributed to two "pawns", and not the ultimate responsibility of their administration/supervision just demonstrates that you/the press have no idea how a businesses chain of authority and responsibility actually functions.

Christ, i wish I could just tell me medical director..."oh, not my fault. Just two 'rogue' employees"

How convenient. It was these 2, unknown, low level employees - you don't need to know their names - and they were disciplined internally, not fired - you don't need to know how they were disciplined. Oh yea, and just ignore that this was occurring in 3 different offices in OH, CA, and DC.

Yep, everything seems kosher here.

re: Source: Two 'rogue' workers principally behind IRS targeting of conservatives


Already blown out of the water by the report.... Quoted as "several employees"

So if several is now 2 the. I guess this bull shite source is correct.
