Posted on 05/24/2013 7:12:29 AM PDT by Laissez-faire capitalist
It seems like only yesterday that IRS Director of Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner was claiming she knew nothing about the dastardly work of those shadowy "low-level employees in the Cincinnati office" - who somehow remain shadowy to this day, despite having been blamed for the worst abuse-of-power scandal in living memory. The Incompetence Defense beloved of this administration, and so effective with a media that would never accept it from a Republican official, was deployed with gusto. Lerner was shocked, shocked, to discover gambling against Tea Party groups going on at Rick's Tax Exempt Organizations Cafe American.
But now National Review has uncovered documentation proving Lerner was up to her neck in the operation, over nine months after she claims she learned about it:

My idea of good humor. Bravo!
Fox Cincinatti are the ones who compiled the chart,just for the record.
Their reporting on this has been absolutely outstanding.
He’s doing what he does best...Organizing the community!
Looks like to butt cheeks and the @sshole (Shuleman) in the middle.
I agree! In the end...Obama will have been spun the hero! As long as the low information voter buys the media spew, he gets off squeaky clean.
More on Bauer.
Outgoing White House Counsel (December 2009 to June 2011)
Why He Matters
Bauer is one of the nation’s pre-eminent experts on election and campaign finance law, and his views are enormously influential with Democrats.
Married to Anita Dunn.
Bauer is returning to New York University Law School this spring to teach a seminar on political reform.
The course will encompass campaign finance, lobbying laws, voting rights and moretopics Mr. Bauer has had ample exposure to during his 30 years of practice as a lawyer, which include stints working for political campaigns and the Democratic National Committee.
It gets better. Read the end of this paragraph.
During his time on the campaign trail, Mr. Bauer led challenges to new voter laws backed by Republicansincluding suing the state of Ohio in Julyand lobbied the Federal Election Commission to allow individuals to text in donations (as did his Romney counterpart). Mr. Bauer also sought to compel the well-funded Republican advocacy group Crossroads GPS to disclose the names of its donors, citing millions of dollars the group has spent on campaign ads attacking Democrats.
This is the guy who pulled the chains with the IRS on behalf of the White House.
Not so sure they can sue her civilly, personally vs. in her official role @ IRS. In that case, it’d be govt attorneys representing her and she’s out nothing. A criminal prosecution is another matter and THIS DOJ won’t go there.
Betcha she has “secrets” she’s saving for her “get out of jail card”....either that or she better stay away from Fort Marcy or airplanes
She’s gonna need more than a Fifth to clear her name.. she’s gonna have to drink a whole case of Pelosi’s Potent Prune Juice to clear this one up.
Hold her in contempt. Lock her up until she’s ready to talk. beotch.
Tampering with the political process used to be a crime and also par for the course, now it is a commonday occurrence for many on the Left.
All that matters is the agenda,, and the pursestrings to the Treasury,, and lots of stooges in the media; the blind, indifferent and complicit.
They say WE get the gubamint WE deserve.. What say you, lo-info voters?
Does Leavenworth have a Ladies Department?
If you count the area where the unattached men who use Kool Aid as lipstick as the Ladies Department, then yes.
hate to say it...I see a trip to Fort Marcy Park in this woman’s future.
You cant make this stuff up. On May 21, 2013 Obama appointed Bob Bauer to A FEC Presidential Commission on Election Administration.
LOOKING TO STEAL MORE VOTES IN THE FUTURE.
Commission to identify practical, real-world solutions to long voter lines, access to polls.
WASHINGTON, May 21, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The Presidential Commission on Election Administration was officially launched today, following President Barack Obama ‘s State of the Union pledge to identify non-partisan ways to shorten lines at polling places, promote the efficient conduct of elections, and provide better access to the polls for all voters.
The 10-member Commission will submit a final report to the President within six months of its first public meeting, which is expected to be held in Washington in June. Headed by Co-Chairs Bob Bauer and Ben Ginsberg , the Commissioners are experts in election administration, policy and procedures, or leaders from customer service-oriented businesses and industry.
“The President’s expectation is clear,” said Co-Chair Bob Bauer , who served President Obama as White House counsel from December 2009 until 2011, and as General Counsel to the President’s re-election committee and to the Democratic National Committee. “The Commission is charged with developing recommendations based on the best information available for administrative practices that afford voters the opportunity to cast ballots without undue delay and improve their overall experience.”
The Commission was created by Executive Order 13644, Establishment of the Presidential Commission on Election Administration. Commissioners were appointed by the President.:
Robert F. Bauer , Co-Chair and Member Partner, Perkins Coie LLP
Another Obama Executive order.
Pardons not for 3.5 years when his term ends. He gets to be stern and forgiving over a period of time.
Nearly ALL of 0bama’s henchmen and henchWOMEN are guilty of ‘abuse of power’. Throw the 0bama fembot in jail where she belongs. She CLEARLY abused her authority, committing multiple crimes to include civil rights violations, PERJURY before Congress, and others.
