In amazing coincidence *another* lawbreaking federal employee's hard-drive crashes; agency destroys it

You may have heard that the IRS employee at the center of the ring that delayed tax-exempt applications by conservative groups claims her hard drive crashed.  And the IRS claims that in violation of federal law, it wasn't preserving emails, so...gee, sorry.  Guess you congressmen can't convict us of anything.

Then--by amazing coincidence--the IRS claimed that the hard-drives of SIX OTHER employees closest to Lois Lerner had ALSO crashed.  Beyond any possible recovery of data.  Oh, and the drives were quickly destroyed excuse me: "recycled."  Sounds so much less malevolent than "destroyed," eh?

Well turns out the epidemic of hard-drive crashes on computers used by federal employees being investigated for lawbreaking is continuing:  April Sands, an attorney who worked for the Federal Election Commission, admitted campaigning and fundraising on behalf of one party on government time.  That's against the law, and she resigned three months ago.

Sands--a black female--sent thousands of "tweets" from her government computer during office hours.  Here's a typical one:
“Dear every single Republican ever, When will U learn that Barack Hussein Obama is simply smarter than U? Stand down, Signed #Obama2012 #p2,” Sands wrote on May 1, 2012.

But now--amazingly, unbelievably--the FEC claims HER hard drive crashed, wiping out all evidence that she sent the brazenly pro-Obama tweets from her government computer.

Which means there's no direct evidence against her.

Finally, an interesting twist:  Before Lois Lerner went to the IRS, she worked at the FEC.  One of her subordinates there was April Sands.
