Former IRS employees Lois Lerner, head of the Tax-Exempt Division and Holly Paz, head of the Office of Rulings and Agreements for years and without mercy targeted Tea Party organizations are playing the victim card now that their trial is coming up, i.e., “the threat to their lives outweighs the public’s right to hear their testimony about how IRS employees in Cincinnati and Washington D.C. handled applications for tax-exempt status from tea party groups.”
Unable to tell Conservative and Christians organizations from Progressive organizations, Lerner and collaborator, Paz who denied hundreds of conservative organizations tax-exempt status are alleging that publicly testimony would put their lives in danger.
The attorneys for Lerner and Paz are using hate mail received in the past as proof. Number one: Everyone hates the IRS. Number two: The targeting of American citizens by the IRS compounded the disdain for federal employees who rail against citizens only for Lerner to be rewarded for her actions with a pension and $129,000 bonus.
…They recently filed evidence to support their claim under seal in U.S. District Court in Cincinnati. Though that evidence has not been made public, court records indicate it relates to death threats and other harassment the women say they endured after their names were connected to the bias claims against the IRS several years ago…
Attorneys for the tea party groups suing the IRS say the argument against full disclosure doesn’t hold up. They asked the court Wednesday to make the IRS officials’ testimony public and to also open a May 19 hearing to the public[…]
Damn right, Americans are angry but we’re not Progressives meaning Lerner and Paz have no reason to concerned, an assurance not afforded to those targeted by the IRS.
For the record, the documents pertaining to this case not public. They were sealed by order of U.S. District Judge Michael Barrett. The May 19 hearing which is closed to the public will address these issues.
