Appalling abuse of power. The number of federal agencies involves stinks to high heaven and can only be accomplished by a coordinated effort.

Wow, that’s a terrifying story.
The Obama regime clearly realized early on that people were not going to vote for him again and started taking “proactive” measures. Even the usual fraud wasn’t going to be enough, so it was important to suppress the voice of conservative groups and make people think there was no opposition or that it was just tiny and nutty. And this woman was a double threat, because she also wanted to do something about the classic Dem voter fraud she had seen while working in the polling place.
The Dems have always been trying to intimidate citizen volunteers and poll workers. I have been a GOP poll watcher in several elections, and I remember particularly the 2004 election, where all of the GOP poll watchers received an individually addressed legal letter from some Dem lawyers group with an ambiguous name. It was supposed to look and sound like it came from a government agency and cited sections of code under which we could be imprisoned for “interfering with” the elections. It was pretty scary, although essentially it was meaningless, and it terrified and confused many of the poll watchers to the extent that they either decided not to show up or, if they did appear, they were too frightened to challenge things that they saw.
Now that this lawless group is actually in power, the gloves are off and all of our agencies have been turned into a giant, crushing machine for keeping them in power.

This is a travesty. To think that FBI resources were dedicated to persecuting the Engelbrecht family, while the FBI ( complaining of too few resources)at the same time could not even share intel with the Boston City Police on the Tsarneav Brothers is unthinkable.
Heads need to roll.People need to be fired for purposefully
abrogating the Civil Rights and guaranteed Freedoms of the Engelbrecht family. It smacks of Hate Crime.

Rush Limbaugh has a saying - "They'll tell you what they're afraid of" - that applies here in spades. To come down that hard with so many agencies against an organization that just wants clean elections screams that they don't want clean elections. Now, why would that be?

(I won't be reconstructed and I do not give a damn.)
Because the agencies are so large and powerful this cannot be fixed. The larger and more powerful an agency is the more corrupt it is. The icing on the cake is that the agencies are almost entirely staffed by Democrats. Even in a Republican administration the agencies and deaartments are working to undermine the Republicans, and Republicans being oblivious, take no steps to clean them out. Democrats always fire all the oustable Republican appointees and demote or isolate the ones they cannot fire. Democrats appoint only partisans while Republicans "reach across the aisle." We are Venezuela and may even have to speak Spanish in another generation.

This is coordinated.
This isn’t casual harassment from a few public service morons who voted for Obama. This is a coordinated effort to stop Republicans or anyone opposed to the Regime in power from voicing their opinion.
Elijah Cummings is criminally involved and may be the coordinator of this effort.

Why don't the Republicans hold hearing and bring these and the other people harassed by the government to testify. Then put the government employees responsible for these actions under oath and require them to testify. Then prosecute every one of them and if possible send them to prison.

Congress needs to investigate this too. Who sicked OSHA, ATF and the FBI on them? This isn’t just IRS, this is coordinated abuse among 4 agencies.

My dream is to see the day when every single person left in the Feral Govt knows multiple former co-workers doing prison time for felonies.
It is past time for these people to be held, personally, civilly and criminally liable for what they have done.
They and their entire family should lose every single possession that they have. The remainder of their days should be spent in a nasty homeless shelter.
