Lerner was not ever a political appointee by anyone. She never held a position that high anywhere.

Thanks for the correction.

Lerner - Republican appointee Shulman - Republican appointee


Which makes it unlikely they dreamed this plan up on their own, they were following orders, doing what they had to do in order to keep their cush jobs.

I am trying to figure out what crimes have been committed. As announced by Boehner (lying to Congress?).




How bout just to start with:

1) Releasing confidential Tax information to the media

2) Due process violation

Maybe to a lower court. LBJ made him a Supreme.

Souter was a Daddy Bush mistake, and Whizzer White was a Kennedy appointment who turned out to be fairly conservative.

From Fox News:


"But if she has any political persuasion, it would seem to be Republican, based on her appointment by the Bush administration"

I'm telling you Lerner was not appointed by anyone. She is NOT a political appointee. Her position is not high enough to be an appointee.

Go cry to Fox News (and she was making $170,000 per year - not exactly clerk's pay). Here's more:

"What I’ve taken from all of these scandals so far is that by Republicans refusing to allow Obama his own nominees, they’ve saddled him with their appointees, who may or may not have an agenda and may or may not be utterly incompetent."

$177,000 to be exact.

She was SELECTED for the position in December, 2005,by IRS Commissioner Mark Everson, the selection to be effective in January of 2006. The promotion was one step up the ladder from her previous position at the IRS, a logical progression.

By the way - a lot of Obama appointees are "acting" commissioners - meaning they don't have to be vetted through the republican congress - interesting?
