IRS seeks help destroying another 3,200 hard drives
Washington Times ^ | 7/23/14 | Jim McElhatton

Days after IRS officials said in a sworn statement that former top agency employee Lois G. Lerner’s computer memory had been wiped clean, the agency put out word to contractors Monday that it needs help to destroy at least another 3,200 hard drives.

The Internal Revenue Service solicitation for “media destruction” services reflects an otherwise routine job to protect sensitive taxpayer information, but it was made while the agency’s record destruction practices remain under a sharp congressional spotlight.

Congressional investigators of the IRS targeting of conservative groups have been hampered by the unexplained destruction of emails and other records of Ms. Lerner, the former head of the IRS tax-exempt division and a central figure in the scandal.

The loss of Ms. Lerner’s hard drive also raised broader questions about why the tax agency never reported the missing records to the National Archives and Records Administration, as required by the Federal Records Act.

The crooks at the center of the scandal have now been memorialized in song.

Another one of those times where facts are stranger than fiction or facts resemble fiction.

Expect the IRS to send out notices to several million conservatives, especially vocal ones, saying:

“We have NO RECORD of your filing tax returns for the past 15 years. Therefore, you are hereby summoned to appear at **:** am, on such & such a date at your local IRS office.

Please bring ALL your receipts and W-2 forms for the past 20 years, SS# & birth/marriage certificates (Original ONLY) for all dependents and $50,000 bail money (just in case we think you look guilty). If you don’t have the bail money, bring a sleeping bag, change of underwear, several bottles of water and a case of granola bars.

You WILL be staying for a LONG TIME.

There are people at the IRS who are beginning to understand they’re NOT above the law...
