    These should be of interest to anyone believing in our constitution as well:

    IRS Admits Wrongdoing | Gay Marriage | Prop 8

    If the Obama IRS did Nothing Illegal, Why would Lois Lerner need Immunity?

    Right, that's why she said this:

    Lerner, the official at the center of investigations into IRS targeting of political groups, also went so far as to ask an information technology staffer whether internal instant messages could be searched and retrieved in response to a congressional request. When the employee informed her that those messages were not automatically saved, Lerner responded with a one-word e-mail: "Perfect."

    Where did you get "almost certainly" from?

    Do you realize the IRS is supposed to be non-partisan, right?

    Why would she be worried about Republicans?

    Again, why would a head person at the IRS think anybody was her adversary?

    That is an intelligent persons interpretation.

    Here is the email, there is nothing in it to be suspicious of ... nothing.
