Sources: Lois Lerner has IRS system access; continues to log in

quote:

Lois Lerner, the Internal Revenue Service’s director of Exempt Organizations currently on paid leave, has not had any of her computer access restricted since she abdicated her responsibilities, according to an IRS source with knowledge of the situation.

Lerner was placed on administrative leave on May 21 after refusing to tender her resignation, and logged into the IRS’s computer system using her agency computer as recently as June 4, the source tells me. She has the ability to access the same information that was available to her before she was placed on leave. The sources tells National Review Online:

quote:

[Lerner] can still access taxpayer data. If your duties do not inlude dealing with taxpayers, you are forbidden from seeing the information. That is a violation of IRS policy, and if she actually accesses any file that contains any Personal Identifiable Information, it is a felony violation. That would include emails that she has in her files discussing any taxpayer case that contains the name, address, phone numbers or tax data from a case. Actual Unauthorized Access (IRS uses the term UNAX) would be a really good reason for the new boss to can her in a hurry. I am sure a simple examination of her email files and hard drive would discover she still has taxpayer data.

Obama fancies himself a Banana Republic Dictator where the rule of law doesn't apply to him or his people. He may be onto something.

Supposedly her hard drive has already been preserved. Someone who knows a lot more about computers than me would need to opine about what she could do now, though.

Considering how high her position was (is), she could possibly do Administrative overrides to change just about whatever she wanted within that division.

I have the same administrative authority here at my job but I'm also not busy setting people up for audits/denials of 501 c4's either

She, personally, could only do much other than mark and notate exactly what needs to be zeroed out by the techies

Sounds like a huge opportunity for a leak. I'm sure Holder is urgently preparing a subpoena for Fox News personnel to plug it up.

She wouldn't have the privileges too zero out server data/logs as evidenced she is obviously being tracked now. That would take an outside tech source

She could get into a lot of trouble

Especially with an investigation underway

And what makes you so sure? From the article quote "has not had any of her computer access restricted since she abdicated her responsibilities, according to an IRS source with knowledge of the situation." which, if true, would indicate that she still has unrestricted admin rights.

She is still an employee? Still being paid $177,000 annual salary?

She is just working from home.

Issa not saying much after the Republican manager at IRS admitted he was the one who flagged the Tea Party. And we also know the attorney's name in Washington who was over the stonewalling. Why no more news?
