    Jesus man, the link is in the OP. It's the very attack piece you apparently support.

    Judicial Watch did a FOIAR and just got the emails. The emails purport to show Lerner sent tax returns and information from Tea Party shill groups to the FEC.

    The crazy allegations from Issa and others are from August and have nothing to do with any emails.

    Focus, focus. And look at the forum this is posted in.
    LMAO. Alright, gonna help you out so you don't look anymore dumber than you already have. The article posted from CNN is from the testimony of FEC Vice chairman.

    The vice chairman of the Federal Election Commission told CNN on Monday he has seen numerous undisclosed e-mails between FEC staffers and the Internal Revenue Service that raise new questions about potential improper contact between two federal agencies in the alleged targeting of conservative political groups.

    The FOIA request by Judicial Watch are the "numerous undisclosed e-mails" the Vice Chairman was referring to in regards to America Future Fund.

    I can't spell out any simpler, if you're still struggling....I suggest a remedial reading comprehension course.

    Whether or not donations were reportable or not and whether or not they were reported might very well have bearing on tax status.

    Psssst: Judicial watch just got the emails. Read man read. That's why this is posted in Breaking News.

    Now that we got the info, it can be interpreted. See how it works. Issa's silly vapid claims don't mean a thing until we have stuff to actually review and like I say, it doesn't look like any law was broken since the FEC requested the information.

    Don't you guys read your own attack threads?

    Tax stati are confidential, unless the FEC had a warrant and probably not even then, since tax stati have nothing to do with election law.

    Didn't you bother to read the Judicial Watch attack piece?
    Oh, so just because the FEC requested the information, that makes it unquestionably legal?

    Lerner had been employed by the FEC from 1986 to 1995, and her reputation for aggressively investigating/targeting conservative groups is well documented while she was there. From the FEC she gets the position at the IRS and lo and behold the same antics are used against the Tea Party. Only this time the paper trail leads all the way to the White House. IRS officials met with the White House staff over 150 times during this period and these officials used their "private" email accounts to pass around private information on U.S. citizens who happen to be conservative and the left wants us to believe the IRS was acting apolitical? Yeah right. What we have here are two federal agencies that are out of control working in concert with the White House for political gain of power.

    Very good point, he's always the last to know when something's gone wrong.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Cute, but there's a difference between not knowing what the NSA is up to, which a President should know, and not knowing the goings-on of a mid level IRS employee which really no President should be expected to know.
