IRS Scandal: Lerner email proves she was involved



Someone be's in trouble...

quote:

Congress's investigation into the IRS targeting of conservatives has been continuing out of the Syria headlines, and it's turning up news. Emails unearthed by the House Ways and Means Committee between former Director of Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner and her staff raise doubts about IRS claims that the targeting wasn't politically motivated and that low-level employees in Cincinnati masterminded the operation.

In a February 2011 email, Ms. Lerner advised her staff—including then Exempt Organizations Technical Manager Michael Seto and then Rulings and Agreements director Holly Paz—that a Tea Party matter is "very dangerous," and is something "Counsel and [Lerner adviser] Judy Kindell need to be in on." Ms. Lerner adds, "Cincy should probably NOT have these cases."

The emails also put the targeting in the context of the media and Congressional drumbeat over the impact of conservative campaign spending on the 2012 elections. On July 10, 2012 then Lerner-adviser Sharon Light emailed Ms. Lerner a National Public Radio story on how outside money was making it hard for Democrats to hold their Senate majority.

The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee had complained to the Federal Election Commission that conservative groups like Crossroads GPS and Americans for Prosperity should be treated as political committees, rather than 501(c)(4)s, which are tax-exempt social welfare groups that do not have to disclose their donors.

"Perhaps the FEC will save the day," Ms. Lerner wrote back later that morning.

That response suggests Ms. Lerner's political leanings, and it also raises questions about Ms. Lerner's intentions in a separate email exchange she had when an FEC investigator inquired about the status of the conservative group the American Future Fund

Pretty damning, but it probably goes higher than her.

More important stuff to do. Gotta go indiscriminately kill Syrians to show Assad that it's wrong to indiscriminately kill Syrians.

Hopefully the people directly tied to that email will be called before the committee to explain themselves. Not that anything would come from it

My only complaint about the IRS scandal is they didn't target democrats as well. It's all about them not wanting to have to say where the money came from .

Just playing devil's advocate, is it possible these emails refer to them finding & stopping the targeting the year before & stating that Cinci shouldn't handle those bc they were doing things they shouldn't? That's what I would argue if I were her - especially if I were guilty.

Anyone with even the slightest bit of realism knows that this either came from or was condoned by the WH (not necessarily Obama, but from his office).

I would like to read all of those emails in context, rather than excerpts the WSJ chose to include in their article.

Not condoning either way, but I thought it was already substantiated that Ms. Lerner was a little more involved than she would like to be from the time she pleaded the 5th?

re: IRS Scandal: Lerner email proves she was involved


I was beginning to wonder if we were ever going to hear anything else about Lerner and IRS scandal. This thing is moving way to slow. It should not take this long to get all the information/evidence needed to send some people to jail.
