Christine O’Donnell: I was a victim of the IRS
New York Post ^ | February 22, 2014 | Christine O’Donnell

Posted on 02/22/2014 12:53:17 PM PST by Robwin

Whether Democrat or Republican, do you really want your private tax information leaked with impunity?

On March 9, 2010, around 10 a.m., I announced my plans to run for senate representing Delaware.

Later that same day, my office received a call from a reporter asking about my taxes.

It’s since come out, after a halting and unenthusiastic investigation, that a Delaware Department of Revenue employee named David Smith accessed my records that day at approximately 2 p.m. — out of curiosity, he says.

That these records ended up in the hands of the press is just a coincidence, the IRS claims.

I recognize that Christine is a joke to many, even some on here. But her story of her treatment at the hands of the IRS is no joke; in fact, it's criminal.

President Obama, you might want to look into this. It appears there is a smidgen of corruption in your IRS.

What happened to her is disgusting and should send a chill down the spine of every law abiding American.

I have a friend who worked at the IRS for a long time. He told me it was cause for immediate firing if IRS employees accessed information of someone who was not a case assigned to them.

Obviously if you’re doing it for political reasons you get a free pass. But I do recall that people who accessed Obama’s passport records were in big trouble.

This was obvious: she’s a REPUBLICAN!
democrat operatives regularly use their work access to private and sensitive information to get information on their enemies and “leak” it to the press.

This is common.
This is criminal.

The press is eager to lap it up and broadcast it, even if it is private information obtained illegally.

All elections in which a democrat was elected are fraudulent.

What is chilling is the speed of the attack.
She announces at 10 am, then later that day, probably before 5 pm, her file has already been illegally accessed, illegally leaked, and acted upon by the news media. Within probably seven hours!
How is this not an attack?

This was when she announced for the Primary. An O’Donnell win would upset the apple cart - Castle (R) to fill out Biden’s term then retirement for Castle, leaving an opening for Beau Biden.

If this was a Republican accessing the IRS records a prosecutor would have been breathing down his neck for three years by now. So, where are the prosecutors who will take on a criminal Democrat? Let Congress conduct all the hearings they want. It’s the prosecutors threatening jail time that get people’s attention, and offer some hope that this nonsense stops.

I recognize Christine is a joke to many.....

She was the butt of many jokes here and I keenly remember those that chastised her because of the erroneously reported tax lien.
So sad we cannot get a true account of anything before the left and the right inflict their brands of punishment on an innocent victim.

The guy who inappropriately accessed Obama’s passport records was shot in the head in his car while parked in front of his church.

He was a contractor for the company headed by John Brennan, the Muslim Obama later appointed to head up the CIA.

Why is she a joke? For conservatives to be calling their own kind a joke because they are somehow “not qualified” is offensive. Any citizen that is not a threat to themselves or others is qualified to serve their country in congress. If the likes of John McCain, Sheila Jackson Lee, John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi can serve in congress, hell, why not Christine O’donnell or anyone of us? That’s part of the problem, we rule people out because they don’t already sound, act and look like “Beltway Insiders”.

It's worse. A witness to the person who accessed Obama's passport records was murdered.

Obama's Passport Breach: Unanswered Questions, and an Unsolved Murder

By Pamela Geller
http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/07/obamas_passport_breach_unanswered_questions_and_an_unsolved_murder.html#ixzz2u5ZtBubb

Back in March 2008, the State Department launched an investigation of improper computer access to the passport records of Barack Hussein Obama, and days later those of Hillary Clinton and John McCain. The investigation centered on one employee: a contract worker for a company that was headed by John O. Brennan, a key Obama campaign adviser who later became assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism. Then, a month later, the key witness in this case was murdered. Leiutenant (sic) Quarles Harris, Jr., 24, was shot in the head in his car, in front of his church.

Excellent response. Agree with you 100%.

The media pick up the “joke” meme and use it to destroy people. The slightest misstep turns an enemy into a “joke.” See: Ford, Palin, Quayle, Bush, Reagan, et al.

The Democrat who was governor of Ohio at the time Joe’s info was leaked was on a broadcast, waxing all “Christie knew, Christie had to know” about the lane closings. Karl Rove was on the show, and he replied that the governor was saying that he knew in advance about the illegal accessing of Joe’s information. That shut him up about Christie!

Yep! The same thing was done to Angle in Nevada. They can’t win! And when they’re mocked no republican comes forward to defend them.

Christine is the only person running for senator that I made a contribution and I don’t regret it. I do regret voting for McCain.

Rove had a lot to do with poisoning the environment for Christine. Rove, et al. may have a lot to do with the IRS getting away with targeting Americans. It makes me physically ill.

Quarles was apparently a small-time hoodlum involved in a document theft. But he had no connection with the Obama, Clinton, and McCain passport records case.

Of course.

Remember that Burger had been in and out of the National Archives several times before being caught. The people at the Archives said that no harm was done because they still had other copies of the documents, and that Burger only took interim working copies, but he actually took copies that had Clinton's notes in the margins.

It was Clinton's notes that were incriminating.

I think the belief was that the copies he stole had notes from the Clinton administration warning about Bin Laden.

Googling around I found this:

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/articles/2007/01/sandy_berger_what_did_he_take.html

Berger took five copies of the report and later destroyed three of them. What was on the copies he destroyed? Handwritten notes from Berger, the President, or some other official? Observations that would be embarrassing to them, evidence they missed an important threat or considered or recommended actions - or decisions not to act - they wouldn't want to defend in public? Evidence, perhaps, that would have supported the Bush Administration? We don't know, and no one who does is saying, but the evidence must have been terribly damning for Berger to take the risks he did.

Actually it was an assault twelve guage semi-fully-automatic rifle with handgun grips and a ten thousand bullet clip magazine that went crazy and rampaged up and down the street killing people at random. These assault shotrifles should not be allowed to own people. They should all be hung up.
