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.

You can’t make this stuff up. On May 21, 2013 Obama appointed Bob Bauer to A FEC Presidential Commission on Election Administration.

http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/presidential-commission-on-election-administration-launched-208362001.html

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.

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.

“I did nothing wrong, broke no laws or regulations, and I won’t answer any questions to back up that fact.”

Lerner was shocked, shocked, to discover gambling against Tea Party groups going on at Rick’s Tax Exempt Organizations Cafe American.

Tea Party Group: How can deny us 501 C3 status? On what grounds?

Lerner: I'm shocked, shocked to find that right-wing organization targeting is going on in here!

[Obama hands Lerner a pile of cash]

Obama: Your year-end bonus, Ma'am.

Lerner: [sotto voce] Oh, thank you very much.

“They’re surrounded by legal and employment protections”...Noonan

Why have we allowed federal employees to dictate rules of their employment to the tax payers? Why can’t we fire them even if the president or their supervisors cannot?

Congress could get her immediately fired, but they won't do it.

Congress could vote to immediately de-fund the IRS until she was gone. The Civil Service would then cave - with the needs of the many outweighing the need of the one [Spock] ...

Yes! I like the way you think. I’m going to write my Congresspersons and demand that they de-fund the IRS. If nothing else, if Congress did this, it would get press attention followed by public attention! Great idea.

If Congress can fire employees in the fed gov’t, then why don’t they do it?? I’m going to inform my Congress persons that THEY can fire fed employees. Then they want have to complain any more.

You think i’m kidding? I’m not

This woman is a smug person (because of her actions) but there are people whose natural looks portray what people call “smug” even if they are far from it and folks will make unfair judgements about them. I’ve been judged most of my life for being “haughty” or stuck up when in fact I’m a pretty humble person who struggles with social anxiety at times, since I was a kid. My natural countenance when I’m not forcing at least a smirk, is just not pleasant! People are always telling me to “smile” I know it’s cause when I don’t I look kind of mad:) It’s very frustrating.

#20: Does Leavenworth have a Ladies Department?

After the next presidential election, it will. Besides, GITMO will be emptied by Obama, and after 2016, filled by Obama (and company).

I think Hillary would look good in an Orange Jumpsuit, as she jumped out of a plane (without a parachute). Better to see where she impacts.

Pelosi looks like she’s orange so we save some money by just painting stripes on her. Is Alcatraz in her District?

Boxer: Find a nice padded cell for her, anywhere. I hear the weather is nice in Mongolia.

Holder: He already has his stripe - YELLOW.

And the list could go on, for miles.

Not so sure they can sue her civilly, personally vs. in her official role @ IRS.

There is case law that says it can never be the duty of a public official to commit a crime. She can be sued civilly.

But wouldn’t they have to prove she committed a crime first? And who expects this DOJ to do that?

I wouldn’t mind seeing Holder join John Mitchell’s elite club of AG’s who’ve gone to the slammer.

Her pardon is already written out.

Obama might be able to pardon her for crimes, but he can't stop Congress from holding her for contempt or perjury.

A conviction is not required before suing someone civilly. However, if someone is convicted of a crime and there is also a civil cause of action, the plaintiff wins automatically with only damages to be determined.

As a practical matter, how far do you think the plaintiff(s) would get without a criminal conviction? I can think of OJ, but not many other instances. In that case, too, it was a handy change of venue. Regrettably, venue more than the law determines the verdict. IMAGINE suing an Obama Administration official in the DC federal court. ha!

As a practical matter, if she is sued, the plaintiffs would be entitled to discovery of hundreds if not thousands of pages of documents.

Failure to produce them would be a legal admission that what they are alleged to include would be accepted as facts by any court.

I think, in Lerner’s case, it’s just the smugness of having had power over others.

1). Being in her position, everyone hates you, but kisses your butt out of fear.

2). Since it is obvious, you end up hating their hypocrisy.

3). Once on top, you realize that any ‘personal anxiety’ can be quieted by using your power over others.

4). When you see everyone ABOVE YOU doing the same thing, you use your power to go after everyone you don’t like or who gets in your way.

We all dream in our wildest and most wonderful dreams of not just impeachment in the House (which could certainly happen with a simple majority, like with Clinton), and removal from office in the Senate, but to get 67 votes (2/3rds of the members present as required by the Constitution) in this Democrat senate is an absolute impossibility no matter what he does.
