I would love to know what PR firm set up this interview with Politico for Lois Lerner. Talk about unabashed spin.
On Friday of last week “a senior official” at the DOJ called Darryl Issa’s office by mistake thinking it was a Democratic office. The official wanted to leak documents to the Dems and reporters before the Republicans saw them.
The company says that it believes the audit is politically motivated.
Well this is interesting. And as you can see all the major news outlets are all over this one.
Yeah, how about it?
I know I am not the only American taxpayer who feels like they have been taken for a ride over the past 5 years. (And before, but especially since the Crash.) We want our money back.
It’s true. We the American people tolerate obvious lying by our public officials. There have been a string of bold faced lies told to the public by the CIA, NSA, IRS, and the State Department recently and we have let the agencies and leadership get away with it. So long as we continue to let things slide we will continue to be lied to.
Remy is a great satirist. He’s got a bunch of other songs too. But I particularly liked this new one.
Of course being a good liberal Stewart lets them off a bit at the end. He doesn’t want to come off as some anti-government nutbar. Still, a good report.
This stinks stinks stinks and should be pursued with tenacity on the Hill and elsewhere. All the IT people commenting on the Lerner articles across the Web say they can find all sorts of stuff which we are being told is lost. Perhaps it’s time for an opensourced investigation. Let the people at the data and let them see what they can find.
