IRS's Lerner Had History of Harassment, Inappropriate Religious Inquiries at FEC | The Weekly Standard
Lerner had an agency that engaged in the exact same behavior. So, do you believe in coincidences?The Christian Coalition was ultimately absolved of any FEC wrongdoing in 1999, and Lerner was promoted to acting General Counsel at the FEC in 2001 before eventually moving on to the IRS. Bopp, who's all too familiar with the aggressive and inappropriate tenor she set leading the FEC's Enforcement Division, says he became concerned about what would happen as soon as Lerner joined the IRS. "When she left the FEC, I thought, 'Wow, this means the not for profit division is gearing up politically,'" he said. "It didn't bode well, because of the way [the FEC] approached cases."
Now we that the IRS is suddenly doing the same type of thing...engaging in investigations of political opponents and asking inappropriate questions. For you to say its innuendo....they say ignorance is bliss, your comment is willfully blissful.
If this is all you have to hang your hat on it is weak, weak, weak.
My partisanship is besides the point here. Seriously, she's pleading the fifith in front of a Comission created for the explicit purpose of getting to the bottom of this IRS issue. If there's no issue then she should be ready and willing to answer the questions from the "witch hunters".
Her sincere and " honest " answers would expose their Narraitive. Stop the Witch hunt right ? And your'e saying I'm being partisan ?
She is being questioned by a Republican Comittee but your'e claiming she needs to protect herself from Obama ?
And yes, she did lie. During the press conference she stated these were "front line employees in Cinci, and that was isolated to that division"
A clear attempt to mititigate the truth.
This isn't going anywhere, and I know for a fact more whistle blowers are on their way.
