Skip to comments.[Democrat] McCaskill Calls For Firing Of All Involved In IRS Targeting Scandal
Posted on 05/18/2013 9:40:55 PM PDT by grundle
WASHINGTON (KMOX) Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-MO, issued a video statement Friday in response to reports that the Internal Revenue Service unfairly targeted conservative nonprofit groups.
Im mad. It is un-American, it is wrong, and we have to make sure that this gets fixed, Missouris senior senator said. Theres a reason Lady Justice wears a blindfold in America. That is because in America, we dont apply the law based on who you are, who you know, or what you believe. We apply the law equally.
McCaskill went on to say that the targeting of one group based on political beliefs infuriates her.
We should not only fire the head of the IRS, which has occurred, but weve got to go down the line and find every single person who had anything to do with this and make sure that they are removed from the IRS and the word goes out that this is unacceptable, she said. It is un-American, it is wrong, and it cannot occur again.

McCaskill wants Obama impeached?
She obviously has never tried firing a federal employee.
impeached and removed, apparently.
I can accept fired. I had better get a big dose of prison time in addition. This was a complete breach of the law. Hang em high...
Uh...more than that, how about some time. And will those Senators be booted from office and jailed, too?
How can we even feel good about the investigations because these people compromised the elections. That means that we are not be legally represented in these investigations, because of illegal and unconstitutional acts.
This is just grist for the LIV. She knows damn well that no one of any substance will be fired over this.
Shut it down.
How about up the line too?
Umm, Clare, you are the one that sponsored the bill concerning MCcain and his citizenship, know that Obama was ineligible. And umm, Clare, you were the deciding vote for Obamacare that the IRS will oversee. I am thinking you should just fire yourself for these goofups that have put AMerica in this turmoil.
Methinks she doth protest tooooo much! Phony hypocrite!
And the script (and the acting) are just plain insulting.
How about some damn INDICTMENTS and let’s enforce LAWS that were BROKEN in doing this.
Hey Clair, these hacks broke the law. Don’t just fire them. Send them to jail.
Otherwise, they will end up somewhere else in Zeros administration!
Aunt Bea just wants her face in the news. Nothing to see here.
She’s just pissed that she didn’t think of the idea herself..its so funny hearing from Dems supposedly outraged by this, the same ones who trashed the Tea Party, compared us to members of the Taliban, accused us of everything under the sun and now they are supposedly outraged by the IRS targeting us when it was many Dems who demanded that the Tea Party be targeted
Not impeached, fired. Called into Mr. Soros’ office and fired. I hope they give him two weeks severance.
Exactly! Send these hacks to jail and they won’t end up with another job doing Obama’s bidding.
McCaskill said very few people who are, “legitimately fired,” actually lose their jobs. Or wait, maybe that was Todd Akin.,
Jail or make em wind chimes ...
Fired? More like prison.
Get out of prison card, taped conversation of Obama approving punishing his enemies by way of I.R.S.
“This is just grist for the LIV. She knows damn well that no one of any substance will be fired over this.”
I just looked in Webster’s and next to the words “cynical bitch” is a picture of ole Claire
“We apply the law equally.”
Unless you’re Congress. Then we exempt ourselves from the laws we pass on you peons.
You got that right.
I stand with McCaskil that everyone in the ‘line’ needs to be fired and for my intentions of remedy sent to prison. I generally am very leery of anything she talks about but on this one point I can go with her.
And no more IRS.
The us government has proven itself untrustworthy to wield power, so it is time to remove their power.
Please note she said go down the line, did not mention going up...
Obama is the one behind the IRS rigging the election for Obama ( by suppressing tea party groups).
Yeah this democrat fails to mention the moron behind the IRS riggging the election for it.
I’m detecting the start of a trend wherein both electionwise vulnerable Democrats and those under scrutiny for their votes in vulnerable states (re turning conservative from Democratic control), are beginning to shout loudly about the various scandals (except Fast and Furious, which they have covered up so far).
This is a “panic” diversionary attack, aimed at Democrat liberal government employees who will either fall on their sword for “The Messiah”, or who can retire because they’ve made their pension’s highest payout rates.
Only when people like this leftist Ahole McCaskill demand the resignation of Holder, Jarrett, Donilon, Dempsey, Brennan, Axelrod, Pfoulfe, Carney, Kerry, Perez the racist, the heads of the IRS units involved in this scandal, those in State,CIA and/or Military who told our forces to “stand-down” instead of going to the aid of our diplomats in Libya, and all those in the White House inner circle (including those listed above), who knew about Fast & Furious, the Benghazi coverup, the IRS coverup, and the restrictions placed on our troops in Afghanistan (ROE), will I believe her and others like her (Sen. Carl Levin, a leftist in sheeps clothing; Boxer the fruitcake, Reid the liar, Pelosi the psychopath, etc).
How ‘bout we just fire the entire IRS, the tax code, and go to a simplified national sales tax?
Let everyone put some skin in the game for a change, and remove Washington’s ability to reward and punish Americans with this heinous tool.
prison or the threat thereof will be the only way to get answers.
I say defund it, shut it down and imprison those involved. No one will ever make me believe this was just a couple of low level employees. This administration sure can fool some of those who believe their intellect is superior to everyone elses.
The federal government does need to keep a flow of funds coming in until things are addressed. Other than that, I’m all for defunding in principle and when it’s facilitate properly.
Sound like legalese for I don’t want it to happen. Not really. I just don’t want full-on chaos to ensue. When that happens, the Leftists exploit it.
I don’t want that.
Just following the rat talking point response. If you say it long enough people will believe it. Firing the scapegoats will take the heat off the real perpetrators
He wasn't fired. He was due to leave the job in June, and that's when he will leave. He will collect the same pension that he would have received if he hadn't been "fired". This is just another lie from the Lyin' King himself (peace be upon him).
The only thing that will begin to fix this problem is to fire the ENTIRE chain of command, top to bottom.
there will be more talk than ACCOUNTABILITY.
Congress will do nothing that does not make THEM
and their families RICHER.
Bingo! Probably tied to a well-rehearsed agenda to humanize a bunch of Dims so they can build a wall of protection around the absolute worst of them.
She obviously has never tried firing a federal employee
She has never tried to fire a federal Affirmative Action employee.
Fire EVERYONE involved, from the top all the way down to the lowliest worm squirming in the bowels of the IRS. Claw back their bonuses. Cancel their pensions. Make sure they ALL do some prison time—90 days for the lowly worms, up to 25 years for the ringleaders.
DOWN the line, really????How about we go up the line and find out who let loose the dogs.
Nice dodge she’s trying here. Show trials, scapegoats...look! we fixed it.
No, put em under oath, under penalty of perjury, and see how up this goes.
I want my tax dollars back that paid their salary. I don’t care if they go to jail, their problem, but my money was given to them, that’s MY problem...give it back...take it out of their 40-k and give it back to ME!
