Meanwhile Back at the IRS

With the plethora of scandals and incompetencies coming from the Obama administration and his various obedient minions in government it's easy to lose sight of each individual outrage against the country.
So here's a reminder that the investigation into the repressive IRS is continuing.
Slowly but it is moving along.

Lois Lerner cautioned against email chatter amid lawmaker probes
Former IRS official Lois Lerner said she warned her colleagues to be careful about what they write in emails amid congressional inquiries, according to new emails released by House Oversight Republicans.
She also asked whether the IRS’s internal messaging system could be searched, in the same email to an IRS colleague. It was sent April 9, 2013, less than two weeks after the IRS inspector general that unearthed the tea party targeting practice shared a draft report with the agency.
“I was cautioning folks about email and how we have had several occasions where Congress has asked for emails and there has been an electronic search for responsive emails — so we need to be cautious about what we say in emails,” she wrote to Maria Hooke, the director of business systems planning for the tax-exempt division. “Someone asked if OCS conversations were also searchable — I don’t know. … Do you know?”~snip~  
Because,you know, if we're not doing anything wrong we still need to be careful what we say in case anyone calls us out on it.
The IRS has unprecedented power to disrupt and ruin our lives and seems to feel that it is accountable to no one. Federal agencies are also havens for leftist partisan hacks who can undermine or support various administrations based on ideology.
Some people have called for eliminating the IRS and establishing a flat tax or some such other scheme and while that would be ideal....and fair it'll never happen. Basically because politicians use the tax code to further their ambitions. But, other than public sector unions, there is really nothing standing in the way of congress purging the agency of leftist partisan.
If not then they will simply be sleeper agents for leftist politicians and we will never be rid of these socialist.
