    Emails: IRS official sought audit of GOP senator

    So Lerner suggested a audit of Sen Grassley, who happen to be a critic of the administration over the lost emails.

    This is an attempt a humor, right? I mean you couldn't even get parts for those.

    Are you saying that the Congress no longer has the authority to oversee government departments like the IRS?

    when did that happen?

    Most large companies and government agencies still use mainframes and reel to reel magnetic tape. That doesn't exempt them from having to retain records they are legally required to maintain.
    absolutely. Koskinen gave the excuse that it was just too difficult to retrieve, so they won't bother.

    some partisan hacks sure are being exposed.

    I'm not going to pretend to know the law, and what constitutes a record that is requried to be preserved, but If you don't see a problem with letting the employee decide which emails need to be preserved, and which ones don't, you really shouldn't be a part of this conversation. If you think running COBOL code, or using magnetic reel to reel prevents emails from being saved, you should not be a part of this conversation.

    I guess bubba either is unaware of the checks and balances or thinks they don't apply.

    yeah, and that is just sad. I get the feeling this is how most progressives view congress. As more of a ceremonial body, supposedly only there to rubber stamp their corruption.

    now here is my public challenge to you. point out where in my post that i have objected to checks and balances within the federal government

    i am doing this to expose your ridiculous fabrications and/or your inability to comprehend the written word

    It's hard to know sometimes, because they seem preoccupied with holding the Senate. Reid is still running interference for Obama.
