    Re: IRS: So… Our Computer Crashed And Erased All Of Lois Lerner’s Emails

    “I wish there was more GOP interest when I raised the same issue during the Bush administration, where they audited a progressive church in my district in what look liked a very selective way,” California Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff said on MSNBC Monday. “I found only one Republican, [North Carolina Rep. Walter Jones], that would join me in calling for an investigation during the Bush administration. I’m glad now that the GOP has found interest in this issue and it ought to be a bipartisan concern.”

    The well-known church, All Saints Episcopal in Pasadena, became a bit of a cause célèbre on the left after the IRS threatened to revoke the church’s tax-exempt status over an anti-Iraq War sermon the Sunday before the 2004 election. “Jesus [would say], ‘Mr. President, your doctrine of preemptive war is a failed doctrine,’” rector George Regas said from the dais.

    Misuse of the IRS by presidents is both wrong and common place. It's unfortunate that republicans only raise hell when a democratic president engages in it, and vice versa. Like that, it will never change. Such is partisan politics at DP and in America.

    List of incidents of misuse of the Internal Revenue Service - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Maybe this time people will go to jail and it will be a wake up call for future presidents republican and democrat alike!!

    you can best change your own actions, which from what I can tell is basically you trying to provide cover for a current investigation, ,which makes your feigned indignation laughable from where I sit.

    Kind of hard to do when they were intentionally destroyed.

    The following is from the IRS's own web site:

    Emails as Possible Federal Records

    All federal employees and federal contractors are required by law to preserve records containing adequate and proper documentation of the organization, functions, policies, decisions, procedures, and essential transactions of the agency. Records must be properly stored and preserved, available for retrieval and subject to appropriate approved disposition schedules.

    The Federal Records Act applies to email records just as it does to records you create using other media. Emails are records when they are:

    Created or received in the transaction of agency business

    Appropriate for preservation as evidence of the government’s function and activities, or

    Valuable because of the information they contain

Though I agree with you that someone needs to go to jail over this IRS scandal, the hypocrisy is thick here!

    Hard to take seriously anyone who uses rense.com as a source. If the intelligence was fixed, it was done by the same CIA chief that served the Clinton Administration.

    First rense.com...now salon.com? Perhaps you would be taken more seriously if you would quote from mainstream news sources rather then oddball sites.

    Really now?? Are you setting in the bar ditch? I support an investigation, and if it uncovers illegal acts, I certainly hope somebody goes to jail, AND..............I hope it will serve as a wake up call to all future presidents, republican and democratic as well, that such behaviour won't be tolerated. Now then, what reasonable and objective person would take issue with that position??
