The fact this person is not in jail shows how flawed our government is today. Zero accountability.

They must have it in for Grassley because he was the one who cut off ACA negotiations years ago assuring they would get NO GOP votes.

If this is one e-mail they released it has to make you wonder what is in the e-mails that they are hiding.

It makes plain the erstwhile fallacy of “balance of power”:

The executive branch is in control, regarding the other two branches as decorations.

WHY do we have a legislative and judicial branches?

I don’t get it.

Did the IRS authorize local police departments to shoot dogs in their own backyards?

Is this what has neutered most, if not all of our current representatives?

Surprised?

Yawn.

What would surprise me is if the pubbies actually grew a pair and charged that women and the administration she served with, at the very least, high crimes, let alone outright treason.

Now that would surprise the hell out of me. But I ain’t gonna hold my breath.

I have lost all faith in the Republican Party, not republican ideals mind you,. Just that party that once upon a time, used to embrace those ideals.

Take immunity or dry water and gruel at a federal detention facility.

Wow.

Update: Ways and Means has provided the email in question.

http://waysandmeans.house.gov/uploadedfiles/irs_grassley.pdf

In the exchange, Lerner mistakenly receives an invitation to an event that includes Grassley. She leaps to the conclusion that travel expenses were “inappropriately” offered for Mrs. Grassley. So she suggests referring the senator for an audit.
