IRS sued for stealing the medical records of 10 million Americans

The last scandal dampening rods just failed, and the reactor core at the Internal Revenue service may be about to blow. From Healthcare IT News:

The Internal Revenue Service is now facing a class action lawsuit over allegations that it improperly accessed and stole the health records of some 10 million Americans, including medical records of all California state judges.

According to a report by Courthousenews.com, an unnamed HIPAA-covered entity in California is suing the IRS, alleging that some 60 million medical records from 10 million patients were stolen by 15 IRS agents. The personal health information seized on March 11, 2011, included psychological counseling, gynecological counseling, sexual/drug treatment and other medical treatment data.

“This is an action involving the corruption and abuse of power by several Internal Revenue Service agents,” the complaint reads. “No search warrant authorized the seizure of these records; no subpoena authorized the seizure of these records; none of the 10,000,000 Americans were under any kind of known criminal or civil investigation and their medical records had no relevance whatsoever to the IRS search.

“IT personnel at the scene, a HIPPA facility warning on the building and the IT portion of the searched premises, and the company executives each warned the IRS agents of these privileged records,” it continued.

Today it’s “stealing.” Next year it will be “Standard Operating Procedure.”

Its about time the IRS and its bully puppeteers gets a major smackdown—long overdue. We citizens are in national debt up to our eyeballs thanks to the cretins in DC and then we have to fear the IRS gestapo tactics? So very wrong all across the spectrum.

Indeed. This has potential. It becomes more evident to all that the FedGov has been seized by a criminal syndicate who has at it's head some clueless former Baskin Robbins scooper and community rabble-rouser who may be pretty good at filling out March Madness brackets but not much else.

Its time to start a resignation pool.
