Ends up Lois Lerner was e-mailing her husband with the conservative knock
Washington Post ^ | August 1, 2014 | By Josh Hicks

Posted on 08/03/2014 8:26:01 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Republicans this week released e-mails showing that former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner expressed scorn for conservatives in an e-mail to an unidentified recipient — the name was redacted.

Lerner’s remarks would be troubling if she sent them to another IRS official, but it ends up that she was communicating with her husband, Michael Miles, according to unredacted copies of the exchange that Democrats leaked on Friday.

What difference does it make? She reveals her animosity against Republicans and conservatives in her missives.

I’m sure she sent similar to others...and this is just her cover...like...hey...it’s only my hubby and he can’t testify against me. (He really can though).

So what. I don’t have political discussions on my company email.

But to these types, their work and politics are one and the same.

That’s nothing. It got hot for two days last week, and everyone thought we were all gonna die.

Today it’s raining and cool.

I guess we’ll live now. (at least those who live within 10 miles of me. The rest of you may have different weather and results)

Friday news dump, even the RATS knew it wasn’t all that significant whom she was emailing, the self inflicted damage was already done.

“unredacted”?

I’ll believe that when it is independently verified from an unbiased source, rather than “creatively corrected” which is what I tend to believe.

By independent source I mean someone that is not a socialist liberal democrat or one of their wanker minions.

As a side note: if she’s married why is her name “Lerner” and not “Miles”? I mean, even Mrs Bill isn’t ashamed to be known as one of the Clintons.

Barry pulled her lead for receiving the In Your Face America! award for 2014 out from under her with his “Unaccompanied Minor” invasion of America. It looks like her hatred of Americans is only going to get her the runner up trophy.

If she ends up in jail she should hope that he doesn’t move in on someone else. Can’t imagine any man who would want her.

So if you donate money to a traditional marriage group, you are so tainted that you cannot be trusted at work (Mozilla), but you can bash conservatives to your spouse, yet be trusted to keep your bias out of your work (Lerner).

The lackey WP on full display. Did they use the same reasoning with Romney’s 47% statement to a private group, or the same rationale for the intercepted Florida cell call years ago. No they didn’t . The integrity of the WP and the rest of the media is below pig slop.

I wonder if the chairman of the committee is indicating that Lehner’s personal emails, twitters, and other electronic communications made through her own blackberry and computer, as well as her husbands and his workplace are off limits, allowing them to think they are protected and will not be suppoena, then suddenly issue a subpoena and make the search after they have been made to fell easy about what they write. I think it would be a bonanza for Issa.

Writer's bias is evident throughout the article and he specifically lies that circumstantial evidence can not prove a conspiracy. He would have you believe that only direct evidence or the proverbial smoking gun is sufficient. Not true.

You want to go there WP? Show some journalistic balls by detailing the number of times Lois Lerner, in her position at the IRS, interacted with Mr. Miles' law firm in settling Miles' clients tax disputes. Conflict of interest, anyone?

Why else would Ms. Lerner have retained her maiden name?

If Josh Hicks were actually a journalist rather than a Democrat shill working for a Democrat house organ, he would have been intrigued by the fact that somehow Democrats have unredacted copies of Lerner’s correspondance, thinking that there must be a treasure trove of journalistic scoops in that material, and that he needed to find a “deep throat” source who could forward that material so that he could do real investigative journalism, rather than simply acting as a paid mouthpiece for the Democrats. But no...

“the content shows her feelings”

Exactly. It proves her `animus’ towards conservatives (not necessarily the GOP). Crime: joint union of act and intent.
Corruption, a species of criminal activity. And the IRS political hack perpetrators continue to `thumb their noses’ at the country.

These hateful samples are only a little bit of this nasty animus held by the IRS policy and decision makers, from top-to-bottom. And the House Oversight committee soldiers on—yawn are we done yet?—moving along at their glacier-like speed.

This is what’s called a sucker punch. The name was redacted because it can be played like a lever to apply pressure for those seeking the truth to give up. It does not matter though who she spoke to the fact is she broke the law and used the IRS to harass Tea Party groups.

And just how is it that the Democrats were able to get hold of these unredacted emails, when the redacted emails had to be pried from the IRS by a court order?

waiting in a McDonalds Drive thru a detective lost his temper and threatened a teenager with a pistol — he lost his pension and was fired.

A woman who abused her position and harassed citizens, arguably overturning the results of an election —shouldn’t she also lose her pension..?
