Joking aside, I really can’t fathom the swiftness of the IRS scandal and how it is heading right at Western New England Law’s former hero lawyer, Lois Lerner. It isn’t surprising with the Administration and Media looking for a fall guy/gal but the whole story is still shocking.
Here are two of the initial stories that just came out this afternoon:
Imagine if she actually received orders from above to engage in the political agenda profiling that is coming to the surface. Imagine if she actually has proof that someone gave her directions. She might want to go into hiding or hire body guards, too!
For someone like myself who doesn’t watch TV or movies, this is pretty exciting stuff!
Jonathan, you may have gone to the same law school (Friendly’s) as Lois, but she was a classmate of mine WNEC’78). Such a sad story as it comes out drip by drip. Soon she will walk the plank or fall or her sword. Whatever happened to common sense? A terrible end to a wonderful career.
Everyone else above her at the IRS (and up to the President) have already claimed ignorance – so she is the one left holding the bag because the head of the exempt org division can’t claim ignorance on this one. It’s a profoundly sad story considering she was most likely given direction from someone.
