    Sorry you're wrong, this was started by a conservative Republican manager in Cincinnati.

    Federal investigators are looking for possible criminal activity in connection with the missing emails of a central figure in the Internal Revenue service’s targeting scandal. The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration testified at a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing on Thursday that it tracked down nearly 33,000 emails from ex-IRS official Lois Lerner. …

    Koskinen may have set himself up for a contempt charge with Congress; at the very least, he’s going to have to explain how he gave them false information about IRS records last year. Did he know about a cover-up, or did his aides pull a fast one on him too? To sell that, he’ll need to dispense with his arrogance this time around. He may well discover that Lois Lerner’s strategy of taking the Fifth may be his best path moving forward......snip~

    This is why you get sloppy, self centered presidents and a corrupt congress.

    When about half the country can't be bothered to even vote, you get ****-for-brains government and the people who sit on their hands are responsible. I run into this here and 99% of the time the whiners have never voted and sure as hell never made it to an all candidates meeting to raise ****. Start asking the hard questions of the douche bags who represent the parties at the grass roots level. When you make things uncomfortable for them, the incompetent run away.

    Fine. I don't care who started it, it is a major scandal anytime anyone uses the power of the state to oppress the public. But if a 'conservative Republican manager in Cincinnati' started this, why did Lois Lerner take the fifth?

    I wish I knew, I wish she would testify. I wonder why she is not offered immunity so she can't take the fifth anymore. Anyway there isn't any proof this involves the president.

    I didn't say it did involve the president or anyone in the administration. I suspect it might begin and end with Lerner, which is why she wont talk and they wont give her immunity.

    The Department of Treasury lost its central archive server a few years ago. When they did a bid on recovery (it wasn't redundant) the best bid they got was $80 million and 2 years to re-index the archival tapes. This is where the "Two years to recover the emails" claims in the hearings came from. Essentially the Treasury has been operating on a CYA for a couple years, not willing to reveal the scope of their screw up by requesting the funding to fix it.

    The behavior of the IT department, as well a Treasury upper and IT management, regarding how they treated Lerner's email, especially given the existence of the failed archive, is target rich for a government inquiry.

    The IRS claim that they didn't have a retention policy on email is complete bull crap. They pay the Treasury to manage their email as a stub off of the Treasury domain and Treasury is required to keep all email, period.
