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

"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.

2 guys in Cincy my foot. This was national policy they were following.

YA THINK??!!??

Even self-styled genius blowhard O'Reilly has forgotten what happened to "Joe the Plumber?"

He actually thinks that Hussein deserves "the benefit of the doubt!"

We’re letting the ‘fox count the chickens’ now? Time for Congress to determine who the bad guys are, not the bad guys making those determinations.

"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.

Remember how the TV told us that anyone that thought this was happening last year was just “CWAZY!, “NUTS!”, “A Fox-News Zombie!”, “Crazy Freeper!”, quite possibly a racist, or something similarly insulting?

Sadly, I think not. Not unless this is punished on a regular basis.

There are too many petty bureaucrats everywhere who use their power to harass others and make themselves feel important and powerful. It’s not just for political reasons, either. Sometimes it’s for bribe money. Sometimes it’s a favor to friends. Sometimes it’s just because they get off on hurting others or jerking them around.

Ever try to get a building permit in most places? If you’re not part of the “in crowd” - professionals and contractors known to the bureaucrats - they make the process very painful and nearly impossible.

Still, I’d like to see plenty of jail time for everyone connected with this. It would be a good start.

Surely, these groups that were being denied their status contacted IRS offices or congressman to find out what was taking so long.

This was a blatant attempt to interfere with the Tea Party’s ability to organize before the election. The election results need to be vacated and a special election held ASAP. I can always dream.

Set up Scapegoats. Let them testify like Hicks, Thompson and Nordstrom.

Lois Lerner is the GUILTY LIAR.

Congress cannot issue indictments.

Hopefully you know that.

Congress holds hearings. They investigate. If they believe laws were violated, they can only refer the matters to prosecutors in the criminal justice system. Those prosecutors can either pursue, or not pursue the case.

Let me suggest that people at lower levels in the IRS need to be encouraged to rat out their superiors who in turn need to be encouraged to rat out anyone in or outside the agency all the way up to the WH. Or people who took their marching orders from Democrat leftist thug pols such as Senators. I heard on Mark Levin that Carl Levin of MI had sicked the IRS on organizations he did not like.

This is systemic and is the tip of the iceberg.

IRS Letters Harassing Conservative Groups Came From Washington, DC Headquarters And California Offices, Despite IRS’ Claims It Was “Rogue” Cincinnati Employees… ~snip~ Letters from the IRS to tea party-related organizations in Oklahoma City and Albuquerque, New Mexico show that IRS headquarters in Washington, D.C., and two satellite offices in California, were directly involved with sending harassing letters to conservative organizations that sought tax-exempt status. The IRS has acknowledged only the involvement of its Exempt Organizations office in Cincinnati, Ohio, which typically makes most decisions about granting or denying tax-exempt status to non-profit organizations. Read more at daily mail. I can't get a link to work. Hmmm
