    Then why post?
    Therapy. Seems to help from getting really, really pissed off at how ****ed up our government and society has become. No one's really interested in discussing it in real life.

    Darrell Issa: Emails suggest Elijah Cummings prompted IRS targeting of True the Vote | WashingtonExaminer.com

    House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel's top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status.

    Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud.

    The communications at one point involved Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official who Issa's panel is poised to hold in contempt of Congress on Thursday for refusing to provide testimony about her involvement in targeting conservative groups.

    snip......
    So, let me get this straight...

    Of all the Conservative non-profit out there, Rep. Issa has pinged on one- True the Vote - and among all the digging he and his staff have done to date the only possible "link" he's dug up that connects an ex-IRS official to possible wrong doing are two lines in an email that read:

    Lois Lerner: “Did we find anything?”

    Deputy IRS Official: "No."

    Lois Lerner: Thanks – check tomorrow please.”
    That's it? That's the best Rep. Issa could do after months of investigative work and public hearings at the taxpayers' expense? Really?

    Don't get me wrong, on the surface the dialog clearly shows Lerner was looking into True the Vote, but does this in itself indicate something malicious or was it part of normal, routine business? For all we know that inquiry could have been a routine question asked about any non-profit applicant in the course of a typical workday. In this case, isn't it possible that: a) Lerner was inquiring about one of several other non-profits in that email or were they the only such non-profit organization mentioned?; or b) Lerner was following up on that status of an inquiry that involved True the Vote as part of normal, routine business. The point I'm trying to make here, folks, is unless we know more details as to the content of the email Rep. Issa claims to have uncovered, we really don't know if this particular email is the "smoking gun". From the sounds of it, this doesn't amount to much except Rep. Issa trying to claim "we got something!" which really doesn't appear to be much of anything in my book.

    That is not all they found. The problem is the the IRS is stonewalling. They still have not turned over all the emails that were requested many months ago. Why? what the hell are they trying to hide?

    Okay, fair enough.

    I'm still waiting on that smoking gun. I'm not trying to downplay what's happened. If IRS officials purposely targeted political non-profit organizations to slow them down from spinning up their grassroots campaign efforts n the run-up to the 2012 presidential election, then heads really should roll. I just don't think what's been presented to date equates to a conspiracy. But I admit I haven't been keeping abreast of this story for a while. So, it's very possible I've missed some key points that paint a clearer picture.

    The smoking gun is more than likely to be found with false the vote, versus lois lerner, if there is one .

    maybe because there is a justice department inquiry currently investigating the matter?
