    just for the record.

    Darrell Issa's Democratic rival: You're pulling a McCarthy in IRS case - CNN.com

    When it comes to insults and accusations in modern politics, few things are worse than being compared to Sen. Joseph McCarthy, whose unsubstantiated accusations in the 1950s against Americans he suspected of communism are widely seen as one of the darkest times in congressional history.

    Now, ahead of a House Oversight Committee vote Thursday to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt, the committee's top Democrat, Elijah Cummings, D-Maryland, is accusing Chairman Darrell Issa, R-California, of engaging in McCarthyism.

    And he's releasing a congressional study that he says proves it.

    Cummings and fellow committee Democrats say Issa is trampling on Lerner's constitutional rights by holding her in contempt, even though she invoked her Fifth Amendment right not to testify.

    Aides to Cummings provided CNN with findings from the nonpartisan Congressional Research Service that cited 11 times in modern history where witnesses were prosecuted for refusing to answer committee questions after invoking their Fifth Amendment rights.

    The majority of the instances were in the McCarthy era against witnesses involving alleged communist activities.

    "We oppose Chairman Issa's efforts to re-create the Oversight Committee in Joe McCarthy's image, and we reject his attempts to drag us back to that shameful era in which Congress tried to strip away the constitutional rights of American citizens under the bright lights of hearings that had nothing to do with responsible oversight and everything to do with the most dishonorable kind of partisan politics," said Cummings in a report he prepared for the committee's Democratic minority.

    Cummings points to the service's research that none of the cases involving witness testimony was ultimately upheld in court.

    good luck trying to convict Lerner because historical precedent shows that issa's charge is folly.

    Oh I am not disputing the case against the administration/IRS, I am pointing out the fact, that as long as the GOP uses idiots like Issa, who releases classified information that endangers government workers abroad, lies, is suspected of corruption and worse.. then the message, true or not, can be ignored by everyone because of the messenger.

    Issa is dirty, get another spokesman or front man in your crusade against the Administration. I know the GOP is running out of clean sane members, but you got to have at least one left to use.. dont you?

    When will we understand that attacking little boys will not effect the boss man. Obama is far to powerful to succumb to the petty crap the GOP has to play....we need a new game, and this rather pathetic play has me concerned.
    Continuing this stupidity will guarantee another 4-8 yrs of submission.

    Freakin' Idiots.
