BREAKING: House Committee Leaders Accuse IRS of Illegally Colluding with FEC Against Conservative Groups

by Jim Hoft
July 31, 2013

Lois Lerner, the controversial director of the tax-exempt organizations division at the Internal Revenue Service, has a long sordid history of targeting conservatives.

Under the direction of Lois Lerner, the Federal Election Commission sued the Christian Coalition in the 1990s. She harassed the Christian Coalition for three election cycles. Eventually, she lost her case. At one point Lerner even asked a targeted conservative if Pat Robertson prayed over him. (Sound familiar?)

In 1996, while at the FEC, Lois Lerner harassed Republican Senate candidate Al Salvi and made him this outrageous offer, “Promise me you will never run for office again, and we’ll drop this case.” One of Lerner’s minions even asked Salvi to fork over $200,000 with his promise not to run again.

In May Lois Lerner refused to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. She pleaded the Fifth.

Now this…
E-mails Suggest Collusion Between FEC, IRS to Target Conservative Groups Documentation suggests that Lois Lerner and the IRS unlawfully shared confidential tax information with the FEC.

Today Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) and Oversight Subcommittee Chairman Charles Boustany Jr., M.D. (R-LA) sent a letter to IRS chief Danny Werfel demanding communications between the IRS and FEC from 2008 to 2012. The GOP leaders accuse the IRS of colluding with the FEC against conservatives.

Oh my, no wonder Lois Lerner used the Fifth Amendment when she testified. There's a lot going on behind the scenes here.

FINALLY!!

Finally they are taking the investigation down this road. None of the "targeting" allegations are ever going to stick anyway because there is just too much wiggle room. But "information laundering" is something that is 100% verifiable. If the IRS provided confidential information to people, agencies, or organizations that were not authorized to receive it, then they are in DEEP ****. I wrote a blog about this here a couple of months ago and have been waiting for the investigation to take this turn for a lot longer.
