‘VERY DANGEROUS’: Lois Lerner warned staff about tea party in 2011, emails reveal
The Daily Caller ^ | 9/12/2013

Posted on 09/12/2013 1:13:54 PM PDT by markomalley

House Ways and Means chairman Rep. Dave Camp vowed that “there will be consequences” after revealing secret emails that embattled Washington-based IRS official Lois Lerner sent to her colleagues suggesting collusion between the IRS and Democratic operatives and claiming that tea party applications should not be processed through the agency’s Cincinnati office.

“Tea Party Matter very dangerous… Counsel and Judy Kindell need to be in on this one… Cincy should probably NOT have these cases,” Lerner said in a February 2011 email, despite the fact that IRS officials initially claimed that the agency’s Cincinnati office was solely responsible for the improper targeting of tea party and conservative groups.

“Perhaps the FEC will save the day,” Lerner said in an email, responding to a complaint the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee registered with the Federal Elections Commission. The IRS and FEC reportedly collaborated on tea party targeting.

“There is increasing and overwhelming evidence that Lois Lerner and high-level IRS employees in Washington were abusing their power to prevent conservative groups from organizing and carrying out their missions. There are still mountains of documents to go through, but it is clear the IRS is out of control and there will be consequences,” Camp said.

The IRS did not immediately return a request for comment, but is “working on a statement.”

Congressional hearings and investigations are all about wasting time and finding what dirt everybody has on everybody else.

CNN nothing...

If this is true, they need to post the actual e-mail.

Then bring her in, send her to jail, and then tell her she’s the “dangerous” one, and throw away the key.

I’m going to tune into CBS news tonight to see their coverage on this.

Maybe ABC or NBC.

Maybe MSNBC or CNN.

Maybe.

So, who else is the IRS going to decide is “very dangerous” when their 16,000 “Obamacare agents” start swarming all over the American public .... hmmmm? I think we know the answer to that already.

I believe it's time and long past time to fire nearly everyone in Congress.

Freaking fascist!! That woman belongs in deep stir!

It’s a h*** of a note when conservatives are cheering on a Russian KGB colonel dictator because our preezy of the united steezy is just so gawd-awful!!

I can’t even listen to El Rushbo anymore...well, I take that back. Rush tells us we must have the courage to face the truth, so learn all that we can, even if it’s like eating nails.

Just checked the CNN web site and sure enough they have spiked the story and it does not appear.

The MSM is not satisfied with putting their spin on the stories they do carry but the spike is even more powerful as you don’t know what you don’t know if it is never carried.

This throws the validity of the 2012 presidential election into question, since because of government suppression of political discourse it was not a fair and free election under international law.

Issa is an ass. Holding off for what? Recall the pig and squeeze the crap out of her. The Republicans are wimps and just as bad as the communists Democrats. America is finished. Hopefully the Tea Party will organize for 2016 and dump both parties. Looks like the only chance we have.

______________________

I would imagine, election season. The electorate is stupid and reacts to what is in front of it. Therefore the holdoff.
