On a side note... I wonder if this got mentioned tonight on the nightly news by ABC, NBC or CBS... If I were a betting man, I would say maybe one of them did, but it wouldn't surprise me if none of them mentioned it at all...
This was a "Friday news dump" that the IRS purposely told to congress today, so that hopefully by Monday it will be forgotten by our diligent main stream news media and they never have to report it.
I may be wrong.
Either the IT crew are incredibly incompetent and never fixed/replaced a broken backup policy for years? or they are completely full of **** and did some dirty "housekeeping"... wow.
Oh hell, my computer crashed and I lost all my tax records, sorry IRS.

The sad thing is, they haven't found the limit yet. Obama had promised to be the most transparent administration ever, then after the election, proceeded to be one of the most secretive administrations ever. Not a peep from the left.
They must sit there and laugh as they decide what crap they are going to put out. "The computer crashed, we lost all the emails." Then someone says,"are you kidding? We can't say that!" Then they review what Obama has already said, stuff like "he just found out about it on the news". Or,"He saw it in the newspaper." "Everything will be on C-SPAN." Then they all laugh (at us) and decide to go ahead, no matter how outrageous.
Just imagine a break-in at a hotel room of the Republicans, that Obama had no knowledge of, but decided to try and cover it up. Think something like that would force him out of office? Not a chance.

I'm not one to engage in conspiracy theories, but this notion is so laughably absurd to anyone remotely familiar with system administration that one can't help but raise an eyebrow. I need to research this more.
