"Buy More Ammo": You Thought I Was Kidding, Eh?

Didn't really pay enough attention to this story until this morning.

....Former IRS official Lois Lerner initially blamed “our line people in Cincinnati” for subjecting conservative and tea-party groups to excessive scrutiny, stifling paperwork demands, intrusive interrogations (“please provide the percentage of time your organization spends on prayer groups”), and endless delays in their applications for tax-exempt status....

Yah, well, everybody knows that, right?

Here's what you did NOT know.

... The FBI and Justice Department worked with Lois Lerner and the IRS to concoct some reason to put President Obama’s opponents in jail before his reelection, and this abuse resulted in the FBI’s illegally obtaining the IRS files of innocent Americans,” said Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch. The conservative watchdog group uncovered an IRS document that shows how the agency furnished the FBI with 21 computer disks bearing 1.25 million pages from some 113,000 tax records. This transfer included the improper disclosure of “confidential taxpayer information,” which is covered by two laws that carry criminal penalties: Internal Revenue Code Section 6103 and the federal Privacy Act....

We don't expect any penalties--criminal or civil--to ensue from this, of course.  The Republicans don't have the balls to make something happen.

It's a wonder that the Feebs weren't running the raids on Walker supporters here in Wisconsin, though, given the slimebucket connection of that really cute couple, Kennedy and Lerner.

Not sure if you saw this, Lois Lerner is going to have alot more fun in court:

......Ms. Lerner can repeat her despicable performance before Congress, and continue to stonewall the search for what exactly happened at the IRS, why, and on who’s orders, but she may well suffer personal repercussions now that she was able to evade in Congress’s hearings (with the assistance of a complacent and complicit Department of Justice).
