    Watchdog: IRS workers mistakenly erased tea party emails

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Investigators are blaming mistakes by IRS employees — not a criminal conspiracy — for the loss of thousands of emails related to the tax agency's tea party scandal.

    IRS workers erased 422 computer backup tapes that "most likely" contained as many as 24,000 emails to and from former IRS official Lois Lerner, who has emerged as a central figure in congressional investigations, according to IRS's inspector general.

    The workers erased the tapes a month after IRS officials discovered that an untold number of Lerner's emails were lost. The IG says the workers were unaware of a year-old directive not to destroy email backup tapes.

    Yup,

    Banana repubics don't have **** on this administration.

    The Obama administration used multiple Federal agencies to target and harrass innocent Americans.

    What a hell of a legacy this guy is going to have.

    Yep, that one appears to have been conveniently erased.

    it doesn't matter...there needs to be widespread condemnation to change anything and at least half the country condones and supports this kind of corruption.

    This sounds to me as old news and recycled.

    You are right... The half of the country that's embraced "the ends justify the means" logic, couldn't care less about the this.

    It is possible it was accidental but I wouldn't bet on it. I say it was possible because I have worked for large governmental organizations and I know first hand how incompetent the record keeping can be, especially when it comes to digital records. But the timing of this one sure looks suspicious.
