This is only the beginning. Watch the real fun now, as everyone now runs for cover and begin to ‘lawyer up’. Man, I hope Boehner doesn’t drop the ball on this one, and he’d better get that ‘Select Committee’ up and running soon.

They need to identify EVERY IRS manager and lackey in the bureaucratic “tree” from the IRS commissioner down to these flunkeys.

But -even here! - the news reporter hides behind ??? using the excuse “we don’t know of they are guilty yet”

We need to keep the heat up on our side to pursue this. They used the IRS to damage our ability to organize and get out the vote.

People need to go to P-R-I-S-O-N.

Agreed.

Bath-House Barry and Valerie Jarrett are just throwing chum out for what they perceive are the sharks.

Little do they know, we’re not going for the chum-—we’re going for the throat.

The only way anyone is going to prison is to....

- secure testimony under oath
- develop case/evidence that violations of U.S. laws were committed
- issue indictments
- with consequent trials by jury

The congress is the only hope, because Obama and his cronies will only settle this issue by way of obscure ‘disciplinary’ actions and some firings of underlings. All the MANAGING culprits will be protected and remain in place. And “scandal” will be over. Unless CONGRESS ACTS, as they are responsible to doing under their “oversight” responsibility under the U.S. Constitution.

Now, getting softasssss Boehner to act is an entirely different matter.

Aren’t they giving out “awards” to every piece of shiite that is in trouble?

They think it will convince their base that the commies are wonderful!

And, it will probably work...with the idiots that voted for Barry and watch awards shows.

We’re being rope-a-doped. This isn’t the scandal - Benghazi is! They’re going to trot out a few handfuls of bad IRS agents, fire up the bus, and say “OK, sorry about that, but we fixed it”.

Don’t be distracted. Both sides have used the IRS for dirty tricks. If you think it was just coincidence that this came out just as Benghazi-gate started to undermine Obama and Hillary - think again. And think about who the IRS reports to.

Are you kidding? What “both sides?” Nixon and every Democrat since? Since Nixon did it, it is OK? The American people don’t care about Benghazi, apparently.

Voter intimidation, suppression, and all that Obama said he would stop.
Instead, he ignored. And there is no way in hell he didn't know about this.
This is the most serious election scandal of my lifetime.

And think of who this favors.

They’ll circle the wagons around her, the libs, the press, Hollywood, Jon Stewart.

They need to focus hatred and then have an idol. BO is done making deals, big legislation, taking multi mil trips and being the cool one to whom these people can turn.

Who’ll take his place?

Not Rand Paul. Not Mark Levin, nor T. Cruz, though they should.

No, it’ll be H! She’s probably keeping Benghazi off the stage.

Miller also added that those two employees have already been 'disciplined' by the agency.

While Obama and his henchmen keep reminding us that it is "too soon" to know what happened and who were (plural) responsible, Miller as he jumps the sinking ship, throws the dumb ignorant citizens Bullshit*.

"Disciplined" is meaningless ( and premature) without grasping completely the level of criminality involved.
The Keystone Kops administration bungles on...

Cincinnati is not just a small local office. My husband told me it is one of the major IRS centers in the USA and one of the places where payments and returns from overseas corporations and individuals file their returns.

Oh there are layers and layers to examine; and above this division, there are additional layers...

Bottom Layer

That we do not already have a list of the jobs and corresponding names is a crime in itself.

These criminals wrote thousands of letters and emails. I am sure every recipient who lost thousands of $s and manhours responding to this officially sanctioned extortionate abuse of power under color of (made up) authority, would be happy to provide copies of ALL their correspondence, and signatures.

LET"S ROLL!
Stupidity is not prosecutable yet, but criminal conspiracy is!

Barry had to jump out in front of the parade and make it look like he’s in charge of this guy quitting - besides I’m sure they wanted him “unavailable” just like the survivors of Benghazi.

When zero gets done being POTUS he can go for an Academy Award for his faux outrage over the IRS pursuing activities in which he was the chief beneficiary. Interesting that this is coming unglued a short time after he told a bunch of rich lefties at a Bay area fundraiser that (unfortunately) he hadn’t killed the Republican party yet.

Opening up and leaking his adversary’s private information is a long standing trick in Axelrod’s and Obama’s bag of tricks - including Jack Ryan’s sealed private divorce papers and virtually everyone else he ran against.

And how can we forget dirty Harry Reid blabbing that he had information about Romney’s tax returns yet today he too feigns outrage - presumably at himself?

If these bastards spent a fraction of the time they spent on saving their worthless asses instead on the men needing help in Benghazi then maybe Sean Smith’s mother would have had her son for Mother’s Day.

I wonder how long until the media fall back in line. Maybe it will take longer than Obama would like since he will have to lay low with his IRS hammer for a while.

FOX19 has exclusively learned that as many as four people may be the first Cincinnati Internal Revenue Service (IRS) employees to face disciplinary action, and possibly even criminal charges, for allegedly targeting Tea Party and Liberty groups applying for non-profit status.

On Wednesday, the IRS announced that it has pin-pointed two employees at the agency's Cincinnati office for being 'primarily' responsible.

On the surface, this appears to be good news.

What I am fearful of, however, is that a few low-level employees will be scapegoated, in order to protect those higher up the food chain who may have orchestrated this horrible misbehavior.

"Disciplined"? Unless they're in jail and all their property has been confiscated, their disciplining has not even started. IMHO, any name that appears on forms requesting excessive information should be released to the public.

"Prior to his resignation, Steven Miller called the two Cincinnati employees 'rogue' and 'off the reservation', adding that they were 'overly aggressive' in handling the requests from those conservative groups over the past two years."

I wonder what kind of rewards they were promised or expected for their endeavors?

Of all the places to play a major role in the destruction of America. Cincinnati. Geeez.

The IRS is actually across the river in Covington, Kentucky. The airport's in Kentucky, too.

During an employment drought, I applied for temporary job at the IRS. The building is enormous and must be seen to be appreciated.

We need to make some examples out of these petty tyrants. “Kill a chicken to scare the monkey”, as the Chinese say. Let’s make a ruckus until these fascist scum are stripped of their pensions and sent to prison. Remember Alinsky: individuals hurt more than institutions. Lets really put the hurt on this filth.
