    Reuters IRS officials involved in recent scandel recieve violent threats

    WASHINGTON/CINCINNATI (Reuters) - A current and a former top tax official have been physically threatened in recent weeks as the scandal over Internal Revenue Service targeting of Tea Party and other conservative groups has gathered steam, people familiar with their situation say.

    Ousted IRS acting commissioner, Steven Miller, has received such threats, according to a source familiar with his situation. The source declined to elaborate on the nature or the source of the threats.

    And the head of the tax-exempt unit at the agency, Lois Lerner, who has been put on administrative leave as investigations into the controversy continue, has had telephone and email messages from unknown sources that "threaten physical violence," according to her attorney William Taylor
    Threats made to figures at center of IRS controversy: sources

    The IRS has never exactly been popular, and the recent scandal has not helped their image.

    But these violent threats should not accepted or allowed to go unnoticed.

    I oppose any threats of violence against them or anyone, but I support a threat of life long incarceration for violating the trust given them.

    all this could be is a few post or tweets saying something like "you should have your ass kicked" if even the threats all true

    It looks like to me a liar is trying to be a victim

    Reuters is doing their best to distract from the real story

    Who cares about those low life scum ?

    Yes violence is not the answer but I can understand the frustration of people when peopel like Lois Lerner are getting a pass on criminal behaviour.

    Would have thought ? That there would be consequences for what those people did ?

    What worries me is that attitudes like these will only encourage the people making these threats. There are people who have been distrustful of the IRS, what if that distrust morphs into blind hatred.

    You're wrong targeting of conservative groups may be unethical, but it's not even close to being illegal. The fact is that if the IRS had enough personnel, they would review the applications of everyone seeking non profit status.

    how many threats do you think Issa or any of the other republicans that are on the same committee doing the questioning and investigation get a day? Do those also worry you? want me to point out the blind hatred directed at them?

    go read the hatch act.

    The Hatch Act of 1939, officially An Act to Prevent Pernicious Political Activities, is a United States federal law whose main provision prohibits employees employees in the executive branch of the federal government, except the president, vice-president, and certain designated high-level officials of that branch, from engaging in partisan political activity.
    The IRS also released tax information from some of the conservative groups that was targeted to liberal organization and that is also illegal

    If nothing illegal went on the FBI wouldn't be involved

    all this has been explained over and over again in many threads on the same subject and you liberals ignore it over and over again. get off the Obama Koolaid it is rotting your brain

    the release of the information was done by mistake, I don't remember who did it, but that's the IRS's problem. As for the targeting, please find any evidence the Obama administration was involved.

    are you for real
    so it being a mistake makes it not illegal? Maybe a bank robber should try that as a defense.
    its to late for you you are to far gone
