Former IRS executive Lois G. Lerner told a federal court last week that members of her family, including young children, face death threats and a real risk of physical harm if her explanation of the tea party targeting scandal becomes public.
Ms. Lerner and Holly Paz, her deputy at the IRS, filed documents in court Thursday saying tapes and transcripts of depositions they gave in a court case this year must remain sealed in perpetuity, or else they could spur an enraged public to retaliate.

Remember, Ms Learner has a history of using her government positions to further a LEFTist Progressive agenda BUT we are not supposed to hear about it. She used the power of the tax system and her position as an administrator of the same to suppress the rights of citizens to petition for redress of grievances (1st Amendment)! Now she wants her legal testimony sealed because it might irritate.
Ms Lerner, I promise your family will be unharmed.
You, however, better watch your back.
If she did nothing wrong she has nothing to fear.
They want the truth sealed.
She should be sealed in a tight security prison.
So sad too bad, perhaps you should have considered that before you engaged in your criminal actions. Time to pay for those crimes without the government covering up for you.
The public has a right to know about IRS abuses done to TEA PARTY members and other conservatives.
So she wants her confession to a very public crime, to be kept private?
A horse, tall tree and a strong rope.......
You so willingly iolated your fellow citizens’ civil rights, but now you don’t want any payback? You are lucky you are not in prison.
Tar and feathers
Fear of the Lamppost
is the Only Thing
that keeps Government Honest.
She shouldn't have to worry about physical harm from the enraged public, she should however, have to be worried about the quick stop at the end of a rope. Same for her boss.
Justice would be a prison sentence for all who used their power at the IRS against taxpayers.
How about you give up your cushy pension and health care freebie and we'll give you all your public records on how you violated the laws of your employment by using the IRS for political purpose?
Request denied. You are accountable for your bad decisions.
If they were in jail, they’d be protected from taxpayers.
As well they should. They are getting off easy.
You need two more syllables in the first line.
