    you beat me to it.

    Looks as if, she (Lerner) is quite the incompetent fool.

    And that in my opinion is how it should be.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I'm more interested in learning about how she was "accidently" sent the e-mail in the first place. When I send an e-mail, I have to type who the receiver is, and it goes to their computer. Period. Nowhere else. Curious....

    Greetings, Derp.

    If I remember correctly, she *received* the email.

    I "receive" e-mails, too, but not ones that are sent to other people. She sure seemed anxious to see if anything wrong was done, though.. Fortunately she apparently listened to her attorney's advice and let it drop, since the matter of who pays for a spouse's travel is apparently a routine matter.

    Greetings, Sangha.

    Wait - is that your problem with this, that you don't like the title of the AP story? Take it up with the AP then. It's their headline.

    Proving that Lois Lerner is not only a sneak, she's an incompetent.

    Was the invitation sent by e-mail? I thought Lerner and her colleague were just discussing her accidental receipt of the invitation and assumed it had been delivered by the Post Office because formal invitations still are.
