The report said that during the two years in question agency employees sent Citibank a total of 325 bad checks written on personal accounts that had insufficient funds to cover them, that agency officials with top-secret security clearances had their charge accounts suspended for failure to pay the balances, and that the IRS had a tendency of being “overly lenient” in disciplining those who misued the cards.

Despite the more than 1,000 IRS employees who misused the charge cards, the inspector general’s report found that the IRS did a “generally effective” job in controlling its employees use of the cards. …

These are the government Nazis and super control freaks who are in charge of investigating, intimidating, threatening, auditing, and demoralizing individuals and groups they wanted to undermine, compromise and discredit on Obama's behalf?

I really dislike controlling leftist Nazis...

ANYBODY in the private sector would be fired for this kind of abuse.

But for the scumbags that work are employed at the IRS they abuse OUR money and laugh about it at their parties that WE pay for.

F**K these people, every single one of them. I pray for the Ebola virus to infect the whole damn lot of them.

It makes a person wonder if they are “modifying” their tax accounts so they end up paying less or not paying at all.
