Pushback: A California tea party group sued the IRS on Monday for its harassment of conservatives.

    I would love to sit in on these depositions.

    “Lois Lerner, the head of the exempt organizations division of the IRS, won’t answer questions about what she knew about the improper screening – or why she didn’t reveal it to Congress, according to a letter from her defense lawyer, William W. Taylor 3rd.”

    These actions are being characterized by the administration as “mistakes”, a mistake is when you misfile a form and your mistake costs someone a bit of time as you either find your mistake or new paper work is filed. The willful, organized and purposeful denial of a citizens rights to further a particular political party’s agenda and or to intimidate and foil them is a crime.

    I have a feeling there are going to be many subpoenas and many claims of 5th amendment rights in the coming future.
