Skip to comments.Cummings: Unnamed ‘conservative Republican’ behind IRS abuse
Posted on 06/11/2013 2:54:34 PM PDT by Nachum
Rep. Elijah Cummings has yet to reveal the name of the conservative Republican IRS agent he claims started the agencys improper targeting of conservative groups, despite evidence that the targeting was overseen by a registered Democrat working out of Washington, D.C.
Cummings, a Democrat from Maryland and the top Democrat on the House oversight committee, claimed this week that an unnamed Republican manager in the IRSs Cincinnati office started the agencys targeting of conservative groups, and that the case is solved with no evidence of White House wrongdoing.
Cummings claimed in a letter to Republican Oversight Committee chairman Darrell Issa, dated June 9, that his staff had interviewed a conservative Republican manager from the IRS Cincinnati office who took the blame for the improper targeting.

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Why did Lerner take the fifth, if this is the case?
Coverup Cummings speaks again
A “conservative republican” IRS manager ought to be very easy to locate even without the city being named.
Just another attempt at distraction. Since he is claiming that it was a conservative Republican, you can bet your last dollar it was a liberal Democrat.
Like all those liberal Groups targeted by the IRS
“Coverup Cummings” he just ain’t right in the haid! Know whut I mean?
Or should I of said “see what I’m sayin’
Nothing he says is worth listening to.
Elijah “Mohammed” Cummings likes to sling his poop.
I don’t care if it’s a republican, democrat, independent or Peter Pan.
If they did it they should go to jail at the very least. I’d prefer hanging the bastards but that’s just me.
‘You can’t fix stupid, but you can sure as shit elect it..’
When in trouble, lay down a smoke-screen and muddy the water......
Frankly it’s rather scary that folks like him and oh, Hank Johnson, who thinks Guam can “tip over and capsize” because of too many people, are considered elected representatives.
When I asked a liberal if she knew who ran the Senate, her reply was Boehner and the Republicans.
Guess the Sun rises in the West, these days.
Affimative action in action!
I think he has two sisters and 3 cousins!
Hmmmm.....sounds very similar to the claim by Rep Cleaver that he was spat upon by Tea Party protesters. That *evidence* never did surface.
Jack McCain after the “hobbits?”
like a cornered rat....
He's still lookin for that guy too?
The #ing Pubbies are loving the hyped NSA scandal. Nothing else to worry about now that Summer vacation is here. Scumbags.
Personally I do not think it matters which party affiliation the person has. It is the action taken that is under question.
Bottom line who gave the order to target one segment of the population while allowing another to skate?
Americans have traditionally have had a higher compliance rate when it comes to taxes then other industrial nations. That is because for the most part Americans have trusted their government.
In just a few short years Liberal Democrats have eroded that trust. Americans can no longer trust their government to be impartial.
I do not believe the Democrats fully understand the slippery slope they have pushed the nation down.
Must be the same guy who told Harry Reid that Romney didn’t pay his taxes.
Usually the Dems have NO PROBLEM naming a Republican.
The man is an embarrassment to government at any level. He's under-educated, not even street-smart....and the neurons in his brain certainly don't function properly in sparking coherent speech and dot-connection.
He doesn't appear to have early onset of dementia, but as you inferred correctly in your post, he certainly is barely functioning with minimal intelligence and a smattering of cognitive dissonance.
Mix that with the clinging of a discontented dullard to a leader and a cult like Obama and the Democrats, you have a useless partisan hack taking up space and oxygen in any place where he occupies a niche.
As far as being an elected member of the exalted U.S. House...and of being minority chair of an important Committee, he's a prime example of that old saying, "Shiite floats".
Right. Bush. Cheney. Koch Brothers.
Notice the first sentence under the article link - he declined to release the transcript publicly, but posted a full transcript on the Dem Oversight website.
IRS targeting linked to Republican staffer
Mr. Cummings declined to release the full transcript of the interview he posted on Democrats oversight Web site.
It was an unidentified Cincinnati IRS worker who reported to the manager, identified as John Shafer by committee aides, who identified the first Tea Party case.
Another Cincinnati screener who worked for Mr. Shafer, Gary Muthert, indicated in committee interviews released in part by Mr. Issa, that Washington wanted some cases, to review.
Yeah.... tell us who the republican is. We’ll decide if he’s conservative or not. I mean we have his phone and internet records, right?
Cunnings isnt know for his intellectual honesty .
Just nore obfiscation ..
With all the check and counter checks, it just doesn’t make sense.
Obviously , it comes from somewhere in WQashington..
Whoever it is .. , several folks need to go to jail !
“Guess the Sun rises in the West, these days.”
I s’pose, if you are standing on your head.
Somebody could have great sport with Cummings by playing “20 questions” with him. He is probably naive enough to bite. That is, for example:
“Is this ‘conservative Republican’ a young black woman?”
I think they are.....
EC = Dim bulb
I think Cummings has capsized.

Obama is a conservative Republican now?
Hey the dude might be right on target. It would not be hard to see anti T Party folks such as McCain or Grahame behind the effort to destroy the T Party.
This guy is a Muslim.
He is a pretend muslim. Not a real one.
It leads all the way to to The White House as well as Obama’s re-election campaign...
Cummings is the poster boy for what’s wrong with liberal Black politicians. He is extremely stupid and a shameless liar. Utterly contemptible.
What they fail to mention is the fact that Bush was being "bi-partisan," appointing someone with completely different political leanings.
Unlike Barky, who only installs political hacks and thugs who do their master's bidding without direction, to destroy anyone he sees as his enemy, which turns out to be much of America, at least the productive part.
What is Cummings’ explanation for a conservative Republican targeting conservative groups? The guy is a wacko. A couple of years ago there was the myth of Tea Party activists spitting on black congressmen - well, I WOULD spit on this guy. The lying creep deserves it.
Regarding your comments on Cummings - mega ditto. The guy comes across as a slack-jawed moron, and a shameless liar on top of it.
