If you’ve been following the IRS scandal, you’ll remember that when subpenaed, the IRS conveniently “lost” Lois Lerner’s emails, and destroyed her computer’s hard drive. It is also said that they destroyed her Blackberry as well. It seems that every bit of communication technology she ever touched had to be destroyed; right after Congress decided to look at it. It now appears that the emails of another FIVE IRS staffers mysteriously went ‘POOF” right after Congress started looking at the problem. Steve, at America’s Watchtower, has more…
And now the list has grown once again according to this story because it is now being reported that the IRS has lost the emails of another five employees who are embroiled in this scandal.
Here is more:
The IRS says it has lost emails from five more workers who are part of congressional investigations into the treatment of conservative groups that applied for tax exempt status.
The tax agency said in June that it could not locate an untold number of emails to and from Lois Lerner, who headed the IRS division that processes applications for tax-exempt status. The revelation set off a new round of investigations and congressional hearings.
On Friday, the IRS said it has also lost emails from five other employees related to the probe, including two agents who worked in a Cincinnati office processing applications for tax-exempt status.
The agency blamed computer crashes for the lost emails. In a statement, the IRS said it found no evidence that anyone deliberately destroyed evidence.
What a remarkable coincidence! You may remember that when this scandal first broke the IRS basically blamed rogue agents in the Cincinnati office and now their emails related to the scandal are lost because of computer crashes.
Wow, absolutely EVERYONE in involved had their emails mysteriously disappear? That has to be a complete coincidence, right?
