“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.

Bob Bauer in his own words
http://reporting.sunlightfoundation.com/2010/bob-bauer-his-own-words/

By Bill Allison Aug 10 201012:36 p.m.

Robert F. Bauer, who will take on part of the responsibilities of Norm Eisen, the departing Special Counsel to the President for Ethics and Government Reform, has a long and storied career in Washington. He has represented the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the Kerry and Obama presidential campaigns, and 527 organizations like Vote Now and America Coming Together. He’s defended Democratic politicians who ran into ethics trouble, including former Rep. Tony Coelho and former Sen. Robert Torricelli—both of whom were forced to give up their offices as ethics charges mounted against them. He’s filed ethics complaints against Republican and Republican-leaning organizations, most spectacularly when he prepared a complaint alleging racketeering on the part of former Republican Majority Leader Rep. Tom DeLay for extortion (for his aggressive fundraising), money laundering and illegally coordinating with section 527 groups to evade campaign finance laws. The suit was later dropped.

Thanks mostly to Lexis-Nexis and his own blog, here are a few choice quotes from Robert Bauer over the years. In reverse chronological order:

It was reported on an earlier thread that in Texas there is a web site to register harassment by the IRS....I think it was set up by the AG of Texas or the Chamber of Commerce.
