What does Lois Lerner think about us conservatives? New outrageous emails have revealed her true feelings about the type of Americans her agency targeted.
House Republicans released emails from Lois Lerner, former director of the Office of Exempt Organizations at the IRS. Lerner has pled the Fifth when called before Congress to testify on her agency's orchestrated effort to target conservative groups seeking tax exempt status. If you will recall, not long ago the IRS revealed that it has lost all of Lerner's emails after a computer crash and the hard drives had allegedly been recycled. Since that time, apparently some of the emails have been found. Now that we are coming to learn the true nature of those emails, it's no wonder why the IRS may not have wanted Congress and the American people to see their content.
In a 2012 email discussion with an unnamed source about conservative talk radio show hosts, Lerner says, “Maybe we are through if there are that many a—holes.” The other individual responds by describing talk radio callers as “rabid,” to which Lerner responds, “So we don’t need to worry about alien terrorists. It’s our own crazies that will take us down.”
It's clear that Lerner holds a personal animus against conservatives and then took the next step in using the jackboot of government to punish these people she so deeply despised.
The Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee Dave Camp wrote to the Justice Department, “In light of this new information, I hope DOJ will aggressively pursue this case and finally appoint a special counsel, so the full truth can be revealed and justice is served.”
We'll see if the Obama administration sticks by its belief that there was not a “smidgen” of corruption.
