Dems Fawn Over IRS Commissioner Who Contributed Over $85,000 to Their Committees, Candidates
MRC thru CNS News. ^ | June 24, 2014 | Barb Boland

Posted on 06/25/2014 4:22:42 PM PDT by ncfool

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen contributed more than $85,000 to Democratic candidates and committees, MRCTV research has discovered - with a $5,000 donation to President Obama in 2012 and $19,000 to the Democratic National Committee from 1988 to 2008. This may explain the fawning "thank yous" Koskinen received for his public service from many Democrats last night on the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

Oh Oh the Commissioner has some problems too:

Do you hear the people sing sing the song of angry men this is a scandel that keeps on giving. Time for a special prosecutor to be appointed as Obama reign is coming to a halt. As the house of cards keep tumbling down the drum beats will get louder for a special prosecutor. This is much worst then the Watergate issue that took Nixon down.

The only thing that smells worse than their apologetic pandering is the scandal itself. Beyond all human belief. Even Beckel doubts it, but just barely.

“This is much worst then the Watergate issue that took Nixon down.”

While I agree that it IS much worse I am still convinced that nothing will happen ultimately because most of the press will never let this GET as “bad” as or worse than Watergate. And what’s more, all these people know it. Look how smug they are. there really is NOBODY to take them down. Not the press, not a “responsibly acting” president, not an unbiased or even embarrassed DOJ - not even the Republicans who COULD have the Sargent-at-arms put people in jail for contempt but won’t (Bonehead is afraid to try it).

Nothing...will...happen.

These bureaucrats are paid with my tax dollars, which they use to pay THEIR taxes and then make donations to other government growers.

The system stinks.

How can you have a debate forum if there are no contrasting viewpoints ?

Can you disprove his allegations ?

"Nothing...will...happen."

Ths will be a campaign issue in both 2014 and 2016.

And, there will likely be a GOP AG and DOJ in 2017...before any statute of li9mitations kicks in.

These "smug" folks are whistling past the graveyard.

I would not be surprised to see at least 40 of them charged with felonies.

“You wrist slitters need to go away.”

Please show me where I am wrong. Having faith that somebody will do something is great but I don’t see where that will come from. I would LOVE to be wrong but just calling me a “wrist-slitter” adds no value. Tell me where YOU think we can expect something to happen.

I would be surprised if a single person is charged, assuming the Republicans take the Whitehouse. New presidential administrations just don’t go after the old ones. If I am wrong on this please give me an example. I am not a historian.

I know, right? And they gush over his “public service” and thank him for being there, like it’s just out of the goodness of his heart. This assholes have this arrogance that they are working for the “public good” while pulling down above average salaries with the best of benefits, plus bonuses and pensions that most of the private sector hasn’t seen in decades, if ever. He had a spare $85,000? Are you effing kidding me?!

The House needs to do what was done to the AIG execs. They need to set up a special tax bracket of 100% for all people with a last name of Holder, Lerner, Koskinen, etc. for the rest of their lives.

They should allocate Lerner’s taxes to pay for a copy machine that automatically makes paper copies of all emails as they are sent and received. The savings from drastically-reduced salaries of IRS workers should be allocated to buy the paper for the machine, which shall be called “The Lois Lerner Memorial FU”

And Koskinen’s taxes should pay for a similar copier at the NSA.

And Holder’s for the EPA.

Etc.

This Pr_ck deserves to be behind bars. The RICO statute should be invoked against these racketeers, who run a criminal extortion ring instead of collecting taxes according to law, IN VIOLATION OF THE CONSTITUTION, includingthe obstruction of justice. HOLDER refuses to act, and he should be immediately impeached by Congress.  photo IRSKosk_large_zpsfcef5d95.jpg

President Barack Obama’s nominee to lead the IRS has a net worth between $7.1 million and $27.4 million, according to financial disclosure reports released by the Office of Government Ethics.

John Koskinen, the former non-executive chairman for Freddie Mac, said in a disclosure letter that he would resign his position as a member of the board of directors for AES Corp. and American Capital, Ltd. if he’s confirmed.

Who says you can’t buy or sleep your way to the top?

That is the whole history of the Democrat Party since at least 1992.

The IRS Commissioner at least was consistent over time and it paid off.

Now to really pay him off with jail time. He’d look a lot less smug and arrogant in an orange jump suit and an “I love Bubba” sticker on it.

From the article:
........................" prior to his appointment to the IRS six months ago, Koskinen worked as non-executive chairman of publicly-traded Freddie Mac (from 2008 to 2012.)

Koskinen was CEO at Freddie Mac in 2009 (He earned a cool $550,713 for his "service" that year). "........................

Note the name on the Duke University facility where the soccer and lacrosse teams play (Hint: it isn’t “Nifong”). Koskinen has bought himself lots of goodwill among liberal institutions, including his alma mater.
