Lawbreaking With Impunity
How can you break the law and not be prosecuted? That's simple. Work for the IRS in the Obama administration. They flout the law all the time, and when their people get caught out, they “circle the wagons.” that's what they've done for Lois Lerner, the woman who headed the department that held up the applications of conservative organizations for tax-free status while “fast-tracking” those of liberal, left-wing organizations, thus crippling them when it comes to fund-raising. The Justice Department recently announced that there will be no charges filed against her for her complicity in this scam. "The investigation into her actions, according to DOJ showed much mismanagement and poor judgment, but they didn't rise to the level of lawbreaking." Of course. Not to them, anyway. And who, in this administration, at least, is going to argue with them?
Yes, Lerner lost her job (she resigned). But losing your job to a government employee is not the same as it would be to us peons. She left at full pay while on suspension, then retired at a VERY nice pension before charges could have been filed. So she gets to laze around at home and enjoy life with a comfortable income for the rest of her life. Treasury Inspector General found that IRS WAS “targeting conservative organizations,” and Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz says Congress will “continue to investigate and seek accountability for the American people.” Watch out, Chaffetz, you'll probably be audited soon. Chaffetz said further that “This is a reminder that the Obama administration continues not to hold anyone accountable at the IRS.” Truer words were never spoken. (Daily Caller)
