IRS gives congressional investigators "The dog ate my homework" story

After stonewalling congressional Republicans for a whole year to thwart the investigation into criminal use of the IRS to intimidate and harass conservative organizations, the IRS is now claiming they can't locate many of Lois Lerner's emails prior to 2011 because her computer crashed that year.

Lerner, you recall, headed the IRS division that determined which political groups would receive "tax-exempt" status, which was crucial for fundraising.  By delaying conservative groups for up to three years (while waving liberal groups through in months) the agency was able to greatly diminish opposition to Democrat candidates in the 2012 elections.

Investigators wanted to examine Lerner's emails to see if anyone outside the agency was involved in the decision to use the IRS in this way--a decision that would be a serious federal crime.

While the IRS was able to recover emails Lerner sent to other IRS employees--from those computers--it was unable to recover emails sent outside the agency--specifically, agencies "such as the White House, Treasury, Department of Justice, FEC, or Democrat offices."

Gee, isn't THAT amazingly fucking convenient.

House Oversight Committee chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., suggests the Obama administration isn't being honest in claiming these emails have been lost.

"Isn't it convenient for the Obama Administration that the IRS now says it has suddenly realized it lost Lois Lerner's emails requested by Congress and promised by Commissioner John Koskinen?" Issa asked in an email statement. "Do they really expect the American people to believe that, after having withheld these emails for a year, they're just now realizing the most critical time period is missing?

You're right, congressman:  No rational person believes this bullshit lie, but Team Obama doesn't care--because they know no one in congress will do jack-shit about it!

Look on this bitch and tell me she's not only crooked up to her eyeballs but also knows beyond a shadow of a doubt that she'll never, ever be convicted of anything--because Obama and Holder will prevent that.

"LAWS?  We don' need no steenkin' laws!  We got POWER!"

Very sad, watching a great nation taken apart by mindless thugs.
