IRS Chief: Lerner May Have Planted Question That Sparked Scandal

Ousted IRS commissioner Steven Miller told the House Ways and Means Committee today that the revelation of the IRS’s targeting of Tea Party groups came from a planted question, and that Lois Lerner, the IRS official who managed the exempt organizations division, may have planted it.

The planted question reveals coordination at high levels of the IRS with regard to the disclosure of the sensitive information.

And who is Lois Lerner? She is a leftist agenda driven political hack.

She has just been appointed to head ObamaCare enforcement division
for the IRS and Obama gave a $100,000.00 bonus for a job well done.

IRS Chief: ‘Absolutely Not Illegal’ for IRS to Target Groups

Miller answered, but then rushed to clarify that, “I don’t believe it should happen. Please don’t get me wrong, it should not happen.”

IRS Chief Admits Progressive Groups Weren’t Targeted

Acting IRS commissioner Steven Miller told the House Ways and Means Committee that progressive groups were not targeted by the agency, though he said that the IRS was broadly concerned about political activities by non-profits.

“So, there were no ‘progressive’ or ‘organizing’ buzzwords that were used for targeting?” Paul Ryan asked.

“That is correct,” Miller answered.

Gallup reports: ”Most Americans agree that both of these situations are serious enough to warrant continuing investigation, with little difference in views of the two — 74% for the IRS matter and 69% for Benghazi. Americans place similar importance on these two issues despite the administration’s appearing to give more weight to the IRS situation.” And that’s with more than half of Democrats trying to pay as little attention as possible (sort of like the president!) to the scandals.

In other words, this week really was a game-changer. -Jen Rubin

TWEET OF THE DAY: “These scandals are so bad that for the first time Obama wants to talk about the economy.”

Quote of the Day 05/19/13

“… as all history informs us, there has been in every State & Kingdom a constant kind of warfare between the governing & governed: the one striving to obtain more for its support, and the other to pay less. And this has alone occasioned great convulsions, actual civil wars, ending either in dethroning of the Princes, or enslaving of the people. Generally indeed the ruling power carries its point, the revenues of princes constantly increasing, and we see that they are never satisfied, but always in want of more. The more the people are discontented with the oppression of taxes; the greater need the prince has of money to distribute among his partisans and pay the troops that are to suppress all resistance, and enable him to plunder at pleasure. There is scarce a king in a hundred who would not, if he could, follow the example of Pharaoh, get first all the peoples money, then all their lands, and then make them and their children servants for ever …” – Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) US Founding Father
