Scowling Face of the State/Lois Lerner
Washington Post ^ | 6/12/13 | George Will

Posted on 06/16/2013 7:27:02 AM PDT by CGASMIA68

As soon as the Constitution permitted him to run for Congress, Al Salvi did. In 1986, just 26 and fresh from the University of Illinois law school, he sank $1,000 of his own money, which was most of his money, into his campaign to unseat an incumbent Democratic congressman. Salvi studied for the bar exam during meals at campaign dinners.

He lost his campaign. Today, however, he should be invited to Congress to testify about what happened 10 years later, when he was a prosperous lawyer and won the Republican Senate nomination to run against a Democratic congressman named Dick Durbin.

In the fall of 1996, at the campaign’s climax, Democrats filed with the Federal Election Commission charges against Salvi’s campaign alleging campaign finance violations. These charges dominated the campaign’s closing days. Salvi spoke by telephone with the head of the FEC’s Enforcement Division, who he remembers saying: “Promise me you will never run for office again, and we’ll drop this case.” He was speaking to Lois Lerner.

“Scowling Face” would imply you have some on-site evidence we don’t have to go search for.

If the party affiliations were reversed, she would become the poster girl of the 2014 election season.

A great article by George Will.

And it is even in the Washington Post.

It is good to see some clarity and truth among the lies and disinformation spewed out by the MSM.

What was that crap Hitlery was spewing a few days ago about how wonderful the world would be if it was run by wimmen?

I wonder if Ambassador Stevens' ghost has any thoughts on that.

Lois Lerner. Hitlery Rotten. Valerie Jarrett. Susan Rice. Samantha Power. Maxine Waters. Francis Fox Piven. Janet Napolitano.

These people are going to bring world peace?

More like Peace Through Stench.

These women are complete and utter morons if they think bringing down The United States of American will result in world peace.

They know first-hand how women are treated in Islamist countries and they are doing their best to spread Islamism around the world.

Well, THEY may end up living peacefully under Sharia, but other women? HA!

So this is nothing new under the sun.

Refresh my memory. What did God's people have to endure before things were set right?

I believe they hate men so much, their goal has always been to destroy "their" system and replace it with Communism. "In the name of fairness." "Peace" from these perpetually angry, fascist b*****s has never been their goal for the US. They just may wind up in Burkas (we just may live long enough to see it.)

Yikes. Not a 13 step plan we want to endure.

But is there any other way to turn things around?

Are we destined to become the people of Egypt or will we be the people of Nineveh?

I guess time will tell.

Well, Jonah thought that Nineveh was too big and wicked to be turned around.

G-d showed HIM.

So perhaps there IS hope for America.

THAT is a dang good observation.
heh.
“Ambassador Stevens is unavailable for comment.”

The only time you’ll see anything approaching a smile on these commie harpies’ faces is when they’re drunk, and drunk on stealing power.
Remember DIAF?
It’s true.
In the end, these amoral liars WILL “DIAF”.
It won’t be pretty.

I'm drawing a blank on the meaning of DIAF (I've recently switched to "mild roast". Big mistake).

Please refresh my memory.

Lois may have been attractive when she was younger. Now she would look really hot in a set of orange scrubs with her prisoner number stenciled on the back.

Not aso long ago, this sort of behavior by a public official would have been prosecuted. Now it's a resume enhancer.

Lois Lerner needs to go to prison for the crimes she has committed, and for the civil rights of others she violated, and have all her assets seized.

She also needs waterboarded to find out some truth from this soulless commie. It would be great to see her imprisoned for the rest of her pathetic, destructive, worthless life. Subhumans like her make me ill.
