Lois Lerner’s usage of the IRS to target conservative groups has not had a new revelation until now. Could the contents of her emails be worse than Hillary’s?
Years into the IRS scandal the mainstream media’s long declared dead — and therefore, many have simply written off — comes this shocking new revelation. The IRS’s apparently has just “realized” — almost as if by accident — that Lois Lerner was using a secret personal email account, under a phony name, to conduct IRS business is a bombshell. Lerner, of course, is the woman behind the IRS scandal targeting conservative groups during the 2012 election, which some fear may have tipped the election and handed Obama his second term.
This new revelation both raises more questions and significantly ups the appearance of subterfuge going on at this federal agency feared — and perhaps, rightly so — by so many Americans. And given how directly this IRS scandal has the potential to touch each of us — especially us conservatives — what we’ve just learned about Lois Lerner’s emails may be even more scary than what’s going on with Hillary Clinton’s.
But will anyone in the mainstream media report on this? As Newscasters reports, nope — at least, not yet. That very fact may be a big reason behind what may be the most chilling part of this whole scandal: the Obama administration’s ease at covering it up. Because as shocking as the revelation of the secret email account is, what should be more shocking — and downright chilling — to every American is how successfully our current administration has been at burying what appears to be a blatant use of the IRS as a political weapon.
As Breitbart so eloquently reports:
Today’s banana-republic update comes from our old friend Lois Lerner, who turned the Internal Revenue Service into a political weapon against President Obama’s enemies in the 2012 election cycle, and is somehow still (a) not in jail and (b) collecting a fat pension courtesy of the taxpayers.
The IRS scandal is an astounding demonstration of how, decades into the Information Age, the same government that demands instant responses from private citizens to its every inquiry can pretend it takes years for it to notice legally significant details about its own employees. In an era when the average corner convenience store is probably pushing a few gigabytes of data up and down the Internet every day, Obama’s IRS expects us to believe they need 36 months to cough up documents in response to court orders.
