Bobby Jindal: Send IRS Officials to Prison
Newser ^ | 05/18/2013 | By John Johnson, Newser Staff

Posted on 05/18/2013 5:23:44 PM PDT by Responsibility2nd

(Newser) – Probably a good sign that Republicans see the IRS controversy as very fertile ground politically: Bobby Jindal—who famously warned the GOP not to be the "stupid party" of unhinged attacks—is going after the scandal hard today, reports Politico. The potential 2016 challenger plans to tell Republicans in Virginia that those responsible for the "un-American" plan of singling out conservative groups for scrutiny should go to prison.

The fact the top brass are trying to blame some lower level staffers for the attack on Conservative groups is another reason we need to start at the top.

The working level guys did what they did for the purpose of producing more work with fewer people (than would ordinarily be the case, something they'd been told by management to get done or else).

They used some tried and true methods that usually minimize complaints ~ e.g. aggregating similar cases in the hands of specialists with more experience along those lines.

The top brass found out, and did nothing to mitigate the consequental delay in processing that invariably occurs for the early filers. In fact, some of the top brass used that practice to justify bonuses that could be authorized only by Obama himself!

If a staffer has been punished for being involved in this, the management team all the way to the top should be dragged to court on criminal charges.

Is Newser a lib site? Because if the writer thinks that singling Americans out for government persecution because they belong to the “wrong” party needs quote marks, or that putting the people that abused folks through the IRS might be only “political”, my guess is he is letting his hatred for Republicans color his stories.

As always, the unmentioned big story of the day is the hatred of media for conservatives and their refusal to cover stories in the same manner as if the shoe was on the other foot. I’ve been monitoring the media. On CBS I had to hunt for the story. They are doing the minimum they can.

If Bush had gone after lib groups in this manner, every story on every front page for months on end would be screaming about it.

Sounds great, but it sure seems more logical for the investigation to move from the bottom up.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Not at all. I’m not sure what you’re reading here that gives you that impression. The writer is being very kind to Jindal.

I post often from Newser. I think they are more conservative than 80 percent of other news sites.

At the very least, they should be held civily liable for damages along wit pain and suffering.

Prison is for people like Scooter Libby, guilty of... what? I forgot. What exactly did Scooter Libby do? Well, whatever it was, it landed his Republican butt in prison.

Don’t forget Martha Stewart. She did jail time for piddly stuff.

Meanwhile the real crooks in Washington DC get away with murder. Literally.

Take IRS workers and Zeros money and freedom. Turnabout is fair play.

They need to question the top ones under oath first then get the little fish to show that they lied and are culpable under the Hatch act of 1939 for partisan activities, then Leavenworth.

To what end? Sebelius has been acknowledged as having violated the Hatch Act. She gave a mea culpa, paid back some money, and no charges were pressed. Why would Holder press charges against the administration?

Lol, I agree, but how many times do we need to hear Clinton and Holder tell us they don’t know. It’s Whitewater all over again.

Exactly right, Gov. Jindal; lockup those responsible. But it needs to go one step further: strip these “public servants” of their pensions and perks!

It doesn’t matter. The whole notion of an income tax and an agency to collect it is what’s bad.

It had to go rotten, become a tool of the extortionists, it’s inevitable.

Fire them all, impeach the Kenyan, and repeal the 16th Amendment.

This was all well known 250 years ago. It’s why they didn’t have such a tax in the Constitution, and why it took an amendment.

BUMP!

BTW, is Obama’s IRS rapidly becoming a SELECTIVE Domestic Terrorist Organization against the Middle Class?

Where is the RNC and the GOP on ABOLISHING the IRS?

Nowhere, because these blue blood country club bankers and vulture capitalists are part of the problem,will never be the solution, and like the cash extorted for the political class Washingtonians in DC by the IRS as much as the communist democrats do.

So true. It's just an abomination, always has been, always will be.
