I want to know who actually wrote the questions that the non-profits were required to answer.

Oh Oh this can’t be true....But now we have to connect the dot’s back to the White House. I wonder if this person BOB BAUER— White House General Counsel that was written about in yesterday’s WSJ by Has anything to do with the IRS Scandal.

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2013/05/24/Strassel-IRS-Scandal-Roots-in-Obama-s-2008-Campaign

Bob Bauer, the Obama campaign (and later White House) general counsel, wrote letters to the Department of Justice in August 2008 attacking a conservative 501(c)4 called the American Issues Project for running an ad that highlighted Obama’s connection to former Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers. Bauer did not stop there; he also contacted the Federal Election Commission. That same month, a left-wing activist created a 501(c)4 called Accountable America that was designed to intimidate GOP donors.

Here’s how I have learned to think with my legal training. The presumption is that the g’mint is neutral and doing it’s job without bias towards any group. The burden is then on the citizen to show how he/she has been discriminated against. Once that showing has been made, the burden shifts to the g’mint to prove that no discrimination took place. In this case, the burden is on the IRS to show that it treated the applicants in a balanced way. Of course they say that they were just swamped and it was low level bureaucrats who blinked on Friday afternoon after a long hard week but they, who are masters of statistics, have to do better than that. Hopefully Lois is socking away that money. I hope she loses it all to the victims. Anyone know whether she has immunity? Anyone know if it is even possible to fire a civil servant anymore? At least she isn’t black so they can’t play the race card but I about exploded when she got weepy. Shame on her for playing the girl card.

“One thing is clear: this correspondence shows [Lerner’s] direct involvement in the scheme,” wrote Jay Sekulow, chief counsel for the ACLJ.

As I understand it, Sekulow is the lead attorney for a group of Tea Party organizations who are suing the IRS. In that position he has access to the correspondence between these organizations and the IRS.

But there are a lot of Tea Party groups that are not part of this lawsuit so we really don't have the big picture of what was really going on. The IRS is not going to supply it so the info is going to have to come from the injured parties.

Seems to me that someone within the greater Tea Party Universe should take it upon themselves to build the database of info that would contain Application Date, Completions Date, Withdrawal Date, Correspondence, Questions Asked etc.

Until that is done we really won't have a decent picture of what really went on and a way of judging the changes, if any, in the behavior of the IRS at the points in time where the management learned of the targeting practice.

I'm betting that there were no significant changes at all but there is no way at this point to prove it.

To dream.

IRS official on leave refused to resign, says GOP senator

… “My understanding is the new acting IRS commissioner asked for Ms. Lerner’s resignation,and she refused to resign. She was then put on administrative leave instead,” Grassley said in a statement. “The IRS owes it to taxpayers to resolve her situation quickly. The agency needs to move on to fixthe conditions that led to the targeting debacle."

They knew how she made her bones, and promoted her.
Having expressed my support for the Bill of Rights—she can’t have it both ways.
She can’t give an opening statement and then ‘clam up.’ Unless her name is ‘Michael Corleone.’
Raising the question, did Bam-bam ever say, “I don’t want my attack dog coming out that hearing with only her **** in her hand.”?
Gangsters.

King Obama will make sure nothing happens to her and Issa will probably not hold her in contempt and jail.

The story about the Congressmen that requested the IRS crack down on certain groups claimed that at first Lerner refused to do it. If that turns out to be true, then she may end up being the weak link...

We will just have to see how this all plays out. Might take a lot of popcorn.

No, no, no. Wrong. She “said’ she did nothing wrong. Dudden that make it true? Ain’t she not guilty because she “said” she didn’t do nuttin’ wrong! No guilty. By order of the Dictator in the White Mosque on Penn Avenue.

How many times did Lois Lerner visit the White House? Did she ever confer with someone from the Obama campaign?

And where did Lerner get her marching orders from anyway? Valerie Jarrett? Rahm Emanuel? David Axelrod? Or even the President? (wagging fingers)

Lerner: "I did nothing wrong."

Congressman Drill: "What? You used the power of the federal government to harass, intimidate, impoverish, and imprison political opponents of the Democratic party."

Lerner: "Yes, but that wasn't wrong."

Congressman Drill: "You sacrificed kittens to Satan, parked in a handicapped zone, and tore the tag off your mattress!"

Lerner: "Well, yes, but that wasn't wrong."

Congressman Drill: "You turned over classified information to al Qaeda, put ricin in the champagne fountain at the Republican convention, and framed the Tea Party for the Katyn Forest massacre!"

Lerner: "You say that like it's a bad thing."

Congressman Drill: "You gunned the engine on your SUV to increase Global Warming and blamed Bush! Don't you think that's wrong?"

Lerner: "Well, I guess it depends on what the definition of 'wrong' is."

Thats impossible. She testified she was innocent before taking a fifth.

I actually admire Ms Lerner in a way: She does not back the down for anyone — wrong though she may be. Her gaze is unblinkingly steady. She has bigger stones than Boner.

When will Republicans (other than Gowdy and Palin and West) learn this (at least, when they are pursuing what is RIGHT?)
