Skip to comments.Records of snooping into Christine O’Donnell tax records disappear
Posted on 07/23/2013 7:28:11 PM PDT by RummyChick
Delaware state officials have told Congress that they likely destroyed the computer records that would show when and how often they accessed Christine ODonnells personal tax records and acknowledged that a newspaper article was used as the sole justification for snooping into the former GOP Senate candidates tax history.
The revelations to Sen. Chuck Grassleys office came Tuesday as the Treasury Departments inspector general for tax administration, the governments chief watchdog for the Internal Revenue Service, formally reopened its investigation into the matter by re-interviewing Ms. ODonnell.
It is an active investigation now, Ms. ODonnell told The Washington Times after meeting with the same Treasury agent who first informed her in January that her tax records were improperly accessed.
She declined to be more specific about what the agent questioned her about in Tuesdays session.
But Mr. Grassley, an Iowa Republican who serves on the Judiciary and Finance committees, said he was concerned by the information Delaware state officials shared with his investigators.

They can’t give those records over, they may still need them since she’s talking about running again.
wtf??? aren’t there records retention laws???
MY guess is the State of Delaware has an Official State Retention Schedule for government documents and something so recent should not have been destroyed. Criminal charges should be pending here.
It would seem that the witches were in State Government, not in Ms. O’Donnell’s resume.
It’s going to take 2+ years for the Obama Admin to destroy all their records
Bingo. Got them in Jersey, must have them in Delaware. See my post.
Now we will see if Grassley is still a wishy-washy RINO.
So , with the computer evidence deleted we are now saying that there was no crime committed ?
The missing evidence is an indication that there is a ‘cover up’ going on .
That is complete “BALDERDASH “ and “HORSE HOCKEY “!!
Of course they disappeared. LMAO
Nothing ever changes.
The records were destroyed, but somehow they know exactly why and when they were accessed.
Aren’t there laws that state how long records need to be kept? Okay, whoever then destroyed these records needs to do time unless they want to rat out the bigger rats.
Past time to abolish the IRS.
When it comes to child support, alimony, and retirement sharing with my wife, they keep records on me for multiple decades, and yet THESE records are gone already. B.S.
The IRS are acting like Nazis. It needs to be abolished.
The IRS is rapidly becoming Obama’s Gestapo.
No way. Especially in today’s America, the gov’t never, ever destroys any record of anything for any reason. Period.
We don’t even have a government anymore. It’s just a bunch of turf wars by gangs in suits and skirts.
Yes! go Christine. She took down that RINO Castle. That alone made me
a big fan. Now we know why the dirty tricks can out.
They were breaking the law when they accessed those records.
“wtf??? arent there records retention laws???”
Why don’t they just ask the NSA?
I wonder if any court cases are actually going to be decided for the defendant because the government won’t turn over evidence that it is known to have.
Surprise! Surprise! Surprise! Ain’t government corruption great?!
I’m still trying to figure out, whether it was Dems who were behind the attacks on O’Donnell, or Rove?
Anyone figure that out yet?
Have they checked with Mrs. Clinton? They could be with the Rose law firm billing records.
If not, perhaps they’re in Sandy Berger’s pants.
Sounds like they know who did it even without the records and his name is David Smith.
I still receive mail for several months of child support the state couldn't garnish from my wages because of brief period of unemployment. When I become employed again, my ex and I agreed on payment plan to make up for the missed payments. After 9 years of no word from the States agency and 7 years after the payments where finished, the State sends me a 5 digit bill for the missed payments and 10% interest in a period when the interest rate was < 3%.
So, if I destroy my tax records or receipts from 2010 and tell the IRS, that I merely don’t have them any more but they should trust me, what I tell them is correct, I’m OK, right?
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
That is outrageous.
I could see some low level computer record being deleted after three months but surely it's SOP to generate a more enduring official record of such an action. Otherwise the agency would be unaccountable and could drill into your records on a whim. The very fact that there's no paper trail is a scandal in itself and easily justifies more vigorous digging. I hope Grassly hangs tough because this stuff, just the lawlessness of it, is truly disturbing.
If you read a little further into the article a possible reason appears for why the records are missing. The state is claiming that they accessed the records on Saturday the 20th when the newspaper article came out (which erroneously mentioned a lien against O'Donnell's house), but O'Donnell says she was told by the investigator that it was earlier, on the 9th, which was the day she announced her candidacy.
Just get ot from NSA. Seems simple enough/s
Just give a call to the NSA. I’m pretty sure they have a backup copy of... everything.
First thing should be to find the person who pushed the “delete” button on the records and go from there.
My money’s on the GOP
Primary all RINOs! Start a list now. Conservatives/Tea Party must organize and be a major House/Senate cleaning force for 2014. Notify all RINOs to order their packing boxes for 2014. Send them back to the real world/home.
It IS the GESTAPO and STASI combined.
You know this country wasn’t set up like this, and certainly other Presidents have done bad things. But no one in my lifetime has ever used the Government agencies to punish political opponents to this extent.
Obama has turned all agencies into tools for his payback of the Honkie because he was born half-black.
The liberals wanted a black President—well they got one, a racist POS that has destroyed the economy. put us into debt we cannot get out of and is destroying our health care.
