Issa: IRS Officials Sent Confidential Tax Info to Private Email Accounts
Breitbart ^ | 10/08/13 | Mike Flynn

Posted on 10/08/2013 4:37:44 PM PDT by blueyon

Rep. Darrell Issa, Chair of the House Oversight Committee, recently informed the IRS that the committee's investigation has revealed that senior IRS officials were using their private emails to transmit confidential tax information. The investigation was sparked by the agency's alleged targeting of conservative organizations seeking tax-exempt status.

"[W]e have uncovered a troubling pattern of IRS officials sending official documents to non-official email accounts as well as the use of non-official email accounts to conduct official business," the September 30th letter to acting IRS Commissioner Dan Werfil reads. "In some instances, IRS officials have sent taxpayer protected information to non-official email accounts."

“secure enough for government work” will be their answer.

None of them are in jail, but they are fining normal people $100 for ‘trespassing’ in federal parks.

Not a new scandal. It's part of the IRS targeting of Tea Party groups.

But it is a new wrinkle -- and a very incriminating one. The use of unofficial e-mail accounts on both ends clearly indicates the perps knew they were doing something illegal.

Every branch of the federal government is going stark raving nuts.

Your government, folks.

I remember when someone told idiot AlGore that “good enough for government work” was a designation of quality

I can just picture some factory workers with a straight face telling him that, and then giggling their asses off when he used that phrase

For anyone NOT familiar with the term, it means “anything slapped together in any half-assed way”

Mail fraud, invasion of privacy, civil rights violations, RICO. All legitimate criminal charges should be levied; but no one is willing.

We live in a sick country.

Any word on exactly whose IRS forms were stolen?

Reminds me of Hillary and the 800 FBI files she was rumored to have accessed/stolen. The motive could be the same - to blackmail or discredit enemies or keep allies in line.

This is a pattern of the Obama Administration.

DHS Secretary Napolitano does not use email at all, so she can cover her tracks.

Email compliance laws are strict for corporations, but, as always, our liberal ruling class is exempt.

taxpayer protected information - an oxymoron.

Or maybe a double oxymoron like when Jay Leno was the permanent guest host of the Tonight Show near the end of Johnny Carson’s stint as the host.

Once the communists politicized the IRS, it should have been immediately abolished. It will now always be used as a political tool from here on out otherwise. Time for it to GO!!!

All senior ranking govt officials are required by law to save their business emails. It can be a jailable offensive, esp. if treated as an obstruction of justice.

Let’s fill the jails with these Democratic bastards and forget to feed them.

Chicago is an organized crime enterprise. Everything in the city is controlled by the government mob. His Arrogance is turning the Federal Government into the same type organization at a higher level.

During the campaign, I believe Obama had Romney’s private tax information and his full investment portfolio on hand. This was not public information.

Nothing that I can see.....So, quit spending our money making like you they CAN do something. They have a fancy title like they are someBODY of Congress that can perform some lawful duty.

Maybe some people like the wool pulled over their eyes. How bout it??
