Who Is Cindy Thomas?
townhall.com ^ | May 22, 2013 | Carol Platt Liebau

The short answer? The highest-ranking official in the Cincinnati office where, the IRS would have us believe, a few rogue employees initiated a scheme to target conservatives. SNIP

When an application for tax exempt status comes into the IRS, agents have 270 days to work through that application. If the application is not processed within those 270 days it automatically triggers flags in the system. When that happens, individual agents are required to input a status update on that individual case once a month, every month until the case is resolved.

Keep in mind, at least 300 groups were targeted out of Cincinnati alone. Those applications spent anywhere from 18 months to nearly 3 years in the system and some still don't have their non-profit status. 300 groups multiplied by at least 18 months for each group, means thousands of red flags would have been generated in the system.

So who in the chain of command would have received all these flags? The answer, according to the IRS directory, one woman in Cincinnati, Cindy Thomas, the Program Manager of the Tax Exempt Division. Because all six of our IRS workers have different individual and territory managers, Cindy Thomas is one manager they all have common.

SNIP Oh and, Swann adds, Cindy Thomas is the person who just happened to be the person who signed off on the (improper) release of confidential IRS documents to Pro Publica.

Cindy Thomas has not been called before Congress . . . yet. But if she is, let's hope her appearance is handled better than Lois Lerner's was today.

Unless the folks are questioned, the administration will hide it.

Okay so we have at least three that should be prosecuted:
Lois Lerner - Exempt Department Director
Sarah Hall Ingram - Exempt Division Commissioner
Cindy Thomas - Program Manager - Exempt Division.

Add to that members of the Washington technical office and any members of Obama’s cabinet who directed this.

I think it’s 0bama trying to hide under the protective cover of estrogen.

Democrats and NOW will shortly transform the IRS scandal into a war on women.

What difference does it make if she is called before congress. She’ll simply make a statement of her innocence, give them the finger, turn and walk out. That’s what obamamites do with the full protection of the doj.

Wow, from 2 “rogue” agents in a single ooutpust to a targeted effort coordinated from whom. This smacks of Chicago politics, and would involve Valerie Jarret.

I’m quite surprised that no one has mentioned Section 1203 of the Internal Revenue Code, which mandates terminations of IRS employees who commit any of what are known in the Service as the “10 Deadly Sins.” Passed in the 19990s after the last major Congressional hearings (Revenue Reform Act of 1998), section 1203 is the neutron bomb that hangs over employees. Violations of 1203 are supposed to be non-negotiable, with termination the only result, although I believe the Commissioner can mitigate and sometimes does, usually in cases involving non-wilfull understatement of tax liability.

Why aren't we using this? Wow 1203 could be big.

Great find!
Really explains things and should make listening to the hearings more understandable.
Kripes, there are too many people working for the IRS, even in Cincy.
Geez, we really are living “1984” these days....

While considering this IRS abuse-of-power issue, please do not forget what is perhaps the original Obama administration abuse of power:
