Did IRS’ Lerner Target Senator Chuck Grassley?

Did IRS’ Lerner Target Senator Chuck Grassley?

New emails suggest IRS official wanted to audit GOP Senator

FOX News’ Chad Pergram tweeted some breaking developments late this afternoon regarding a new email dump from the ever-interesting Lois Lerner file.

The House Ways and Means Committee has released the email chain that details Lerner’s eagerness to target a sitting U.S. Senator with an IRS audit because she received an invitation he was attending.

Somewhat surprisingly, the Associated Press has picked up the story quickly.

The emails show former IRS official Lois Lerner mistakenly received an invitation to an event that was meant to go to Republican Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa. Grassley presumably received Lerner’s invitation.

The event organizer apparently offered to pay for Grassley’s wife to attend the event. In an email to another IRS official, Lerner suggests referring Grassley for an audit, saying it might be inappropriate for the group to pay for his wife.

The other IRS official waives her off, saying an audit would be premature.

No surprise, but not a smoking gun.

This woman is as sleazy as they get.

I vaguely recall that the Kennedy-era IRS was harassing Nixon with bogus audits when he was a senator.

The evil is strong is this one.

What’s the point in the oath to the Constitution which all officers of the United States, and Lerner was an officer, are required to take.

Something about John Adams and our government being made only for a moral people.

The IRS threatening a senator, well that’s the dog biting the hand that feeds it. You could actually get empathy from democrats as they don’t want their dogs attacking the ruling class. This would be like the Military considering a drone strike against a dem senator because he went on al jazzeria.

I want Lerner to be a target also … for a firing squad. Ready, aim, fire!

….. This is nothing. Are they feeding little tidbits in attempt to distract from the REAL crimes that have been committed?

Keep digging. This is a pellet. Not the motherlode.

Bruce, it’s no surprise the AP jumped on the story. They’re doing Lerner and obamullah a favor by making noise about it. It’s a diversion from the real IRS issue before the House committee.

[…] end to the senior-level chicanery, before this matter really gets out of hand. These folks are beyond Watergate.  And, if you’re OK with all of this, I fear for future of […]

This is just…surreal. A mistakenly sent invitation leads to an IRS audit. Has anyone else seen the movie ‘Brazil’?

In a way, it’s a shame they didn’t audit Grassley. They’d have been left with egg on their faces. He’s the one man in Washington who could survive and IRS audit.

prof- you’ve got to link to the video over at poor Richard’s news. My jaw dropped on this one. If it were a GOP’er making these statements it would be on endless loop on MSM. (true of a lot of stuff, but this one AMAZING).
