The nine lies of IRS official Lois Lerner
Surely we will eventually discover far more than just 9 lines for corrupt IRS hack Lois Lerner. One thing that is known, thanks to the Daily Caller is that Lois Lerner’s husband’s law firm has strong Obama connections. That should set off a red flag right there, but remember we still have the media protecting Obama. Below nine lies that the public has learned about of Lois Lerner. The compilation of data comes from National Review:
Lie No. 1: Lois Lerner’s apology on May 10th, 2013 was a spontaneous reaction to an unexpected question from an unknown audience member.
BS! Steven Miller revealed it was not a spontaneous revelation. the question was planted, as part of a prepared strategy for the IRS to release this information to the public.
Lie No. 2: Lois Lerner said only about 280 organizations were given extra scrutiny and that about 75 of them tea-party groups.
BS! The actual number of organizations that were targeted is closer to 500.
Lie No. 3: The discrimination against conservative, Christian and pro-Israel groups were the work of low-level idiots in Cincinnati.
BS! Very senior people within the IRS, including its top lawyer, were aware of the situation, and had been since at least 2011. The home office in Washington DC was very involved in the process.
Lie No. 4: Lois Lerner said that the situation came to her attention through allegations from tea-party groups in the media.
BS: The matter has been under both internal and external investigation for some time.
Lie No. 5: Lois Lerner says she put an end to the practice as soon as she found out about it.
BS! The IRS continued discriminating against conservative, tea party, pro-life, and pro-Israel groups through 2012.
Lie No. 6: Lois Lerner says that the commissioner of the IRS didn’t know about the targeting.
BS! Commissioner Douglas Shulman and later acting Commissioner Steven Miller knoe about the targeting.
LIe No. 7: Lois Lerner says she came forward with her apology unprompted by any special consideration.
BS! The inspector general’s report on the IRS targeting was about to be released and the matter goes public.
Lie No. 8: Lerner said she could not release information about organizations with pending applications to Congress.
BS: Lerner or someone at the IRS released the applications and information to left wing organization ProPublica.
Lie No. 9: Lerner says that there was no political pressure to investigate tea-party groups.
BS! This entire IRS attack was purely political. Seven different far left Senators sent letters to the IRS demanding they crack down on tea party groups.
Lois Lerner still has a job at Obama’s IRS.
