IRS IG Report Could Not Determine Who Was Involved in Creating Criteria

It’s Deja Vu all over again.  From the Inspector General’s report on IRS profiling: “We could not specifically determine who had been involved in creating the criteria.”  And that morsel of information was relegated to a footnote. 

How is that even possible? No emails? No memos? Did everyone at the IRS spontaneously decide to single-out applicants with BOLO (be on the look out) words like “tea party” or groups critical of the government, but not words like “progressive?”  

Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t think any group should be singled-out. Either you meet the IRS criteria for non-profit status or you don’t. 

Let’s add this to the list of other things we couldn’t find out: Who gave the “stand-down” order during the Benghazi attack? Who altered the Benghazi talking points? Who is intimidating Benghazi witnesses? Who  authorized Fast & Furious? 

Let me guess…it was some “low-level” staffer.
