In order to believe this, one out of two other things must be true. Either these two are the only people who handle these organizations in the whole IRS, or these two are allowed to pick the cases they work on with no oversight from superiors.

One more thing, how were these two supervised? It would seem that if there are any productivity metrics recorded and analyzed by management they would have stuck out and been flagged when it suddenly took so long to get anything done. Those records, and office procedures need to be subpoena.

Then why did the director resign? “Off the reservation” and “rogue” imply he knew nothing about it..

We already know three separate offices were involved, so who coordinated the assault by the whole IRS on 0bama’s opponents?

Someone is lying to CNN and CNN is gladly swallowing that koolaid. The two could not have run the three or four regional desks where the heavy hands fell, nor coulkd these two have been the ones shredding records and memos, reviewing the lengthy circulars accompanying the form applications, etc. This is a systemic disease at IRS and they are supposed to run the Healthcare program? Yeah, that’ll give two or three rogues massive amounts of usable data to use in political operations.

I call BS on CNN! There has been stories of cases in Wyoming, Texas and California. States the office in Cinncy, Ohio did NOT cover. Washington D.C. and California offices have been involved.

Truth of the matter is this was most likely something that was a training session. At one of those Multimillion dollar junket seminars these Agencies hold in places like Vegas, Bahamas etc.all at the taxpayer expense

Of course, they were acting totally independently. Nobody ordered them to do that. Nobody else was doing anything else. We’re your government. You elected us, so you should trust us when we say things like that. Now gimme dem guns.

Yep, just like that rep said today comparing the tea party to the Taliban. The IRS audited conservatives like they should be going after jihadist, but are too PC to do so. So, instead they persecute Christian organizations. Didn’t they recently refer to Catholics in a negative/criminal leaning manner?

Move on folks, no news here. Just two “low level” IRS personnel falling on swords for their leaders. I suggest they be subjected to “standard of living” audits for the remainder of their lives to ensure they don’t profit from this noble assumption of guilt. Otherwise they’ll get rich like Aldrich Ames while others suffer.

Very simple solution. Call the "rogue" employees before Congress, put them under oath and ask them whose idea it was. Let them know they are going to be prosecuted if anything they say turns out to not be true. Get the next level of names, then move on up the chain...

If it was just these "rogue" employees, this will flush this out, too.

Obama Fires Acting IRS Commissioner

AT THE top of his brief appearance, Obama stated that the IRS misconduct was “inexcusable.” He segued then to say that he’d talked to Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, and then stated that the acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller has been asked for his resignation and it was given.

**********

I guess Miller spoke to quickly as the Chief Leader hadn’t spoken,

The story will be that the two rogue employees kicked off the investigations and anyone else involved was unaware of the specific targeting and criteria.

The two employees have probably been disciplined and put on paid administrative leave pending appeal by the AFGE (Union). In other words a paid vacation that doesn’t cut into their accrued leave.

The union will negotiate whatever discipline down to a letter of reprimand, slap on the wrist.

Sure, they didn’t notice it was taking conservative groups 27 months to get approved.

It is pure BULLSTALIN. There were constituents who contacted their congresscritters who were told there was nothing undue about the delays.

There were legal experts trying to unclog the logjam on conservative filings.

2 people didn't give all of the responses.

There is a coverup of criminal conspiracy to influence an election.

Why haven't they been arrested yet? They are criminals who have broken the law. Arrest them you idiots!!! They have already been disciplined? What the hell does that mean?! They get "fired", with pay, for six months until this blows over and then they get their jobs back? How many months in prison did they get? They violated the civil rights of lots of Americans and Americans lost big in November 2012's elections because of what these two little piggies did.

In a related story, Rush cracked me up with his play off of CNN's "off the reservation" remark today. I couldn't stop laughing for 45 minutes.

Agreed...but they will always “select” them just the same.

Still I know that federal employees are some of the laziest unmotivated and unqualified individuals in the work force. I wouldn’t put it past any to be on the take when they can get it. When they do that at the top you can be certain the bottom is getting their share.

Bette Midler has already tweeted her support for such partisan activity by government offices.

-------------

Several democrat Congressmen including Al Franken had sent the IRS threatening emails demanding that the IRS do exactly what it has done to conservative groups such as the Tea Party.

Anybody got that list of names?
