Did you know IRS employees have a union? Guess who they donate to...

If you're over age 30 or so you know that the IRS is a division of the Treasury Department.

And surely you also know that employees of this department have formed a union, called the National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU).

Predictably, this union donates money both to sitting members of congress and to challengers.

Now here's the margarita question:  If I told you that this union--which includes people working for the IRS--gave WAY more money to members of one political party, can you guess which party got most of the union money?

I predict that every one of you somehow managed to guess the right answer.  (Amazing, huh?)

But the actual numbers may surprise you:  In the 2012 election cycle (i.e. the last election cycle) 94.5% of the union's contributions went to Democrats. 


Y'think there might be some common interest between Democrats and unionized IRS employees?  Hmm... wonder what that could be?

In other news, the IRS is now claiming that not only can't it find two years worth of emails from Lois Lerner, they also can't find two years of emails from six OTHER IRS employees.

But don't worry, citizen:  The Democrats on the house panel investigating the use of the IRS to delay granting tax-exempt status to conservative groups--undoubtedly following orders that came directly from Washington--are gonna diligently help get to the bottom of...

Hahahahahaha!  What bullshit!  The Dems will do everything they can to delay, derail and sabotage the house committee.

It's just who they are.

All the Dems have to do is delay any final report until after the November elections--which should be easy:  They'll demand the right to call rebuttal witnesses--half a dozen or so.  Three of these witnesses will have schedules like John Kerry's:  "Gosh, I'm already committed to represent our division at the annual convention of Government Liars so I just can't testify on the 10th.  But I'm totally available on...let's see here...November 12th."

The Repubs will fume that such a delay is totally unacceptable, and will move to dismiss the heavily-booked witnesses.  But then the Dems will wail and scream to the media that the Repubs are being...are you ready?--UNFAIR!!! and are just using the investigation to score political points.  Cuz, you know, they're all racists who are trying to sabotage Duh Won.

And of course the Repubs don't want to be accused of either racism or being UNFAIR so they'll defer to the Dems, delaying any findings until safely after the election.

But I've got a final question:  You Democrats wail that you're all about fairness.  Where was all this noble sentiment when Lois Lerner and her cronies at the IRS were unfairly using their absolute power to unfairly delay issuing non-profit status to conservative groups?

Yeah, I thought so.  Lying bastards.
