I question the timing. Perfectly timed between Obama’s amnesty speeches and the upcoming Ferguson riots.

Up to 30,000 missing emails sent by former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner have been recovered by the IRS inspector general, five months after they were deemed lost forever.

The U.S. Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) informed congressional staffers from several committees on Friday that the emails were found among hundreds of “disaster recovery tapes” that were used to back up the IRS email system.

“They just said it took them several weeks and some forensic effort to get these emails off these tapes,” a congressional aide told the Washington Examiner.

Committees in the House and Senate are seeking the emails, which they believe could show Lerner was working in concert with Obama administration officials to target conservative and Tea Party groups seeking tax-exempt status before the 2012 presidential election.

The missing emails extend from 2009 to 2011, a period when Lerner headed the IRS’s exempt-organizations division. The emails were lost when Lerner’s computer crashed, IRS officials said earlier this year.

In June, IRS Administrator John Koskinen told Congress the emails were probably lost for good because the disaster recovery tape holds onto the data for only six months. He said even if the IRS had sought the emails within the six-month period, it would have been a complicated and difficult process to produce them from the tapes.

The IRS also lost the emails of several other employees who worked under Lerner during that period.

Lerner, who retired from the IRS, has refused to be questioned by Congress.

At this rate everyone else whose emails were “lost” will be found by 2020 or so.

...another sign of the waning power and influence of this ideologue. He's in the death throws of his last term and the corruption stories will continue long after he is out of office.

I agree with that, but as with the truth about JFK being a hound dog and a dope addict, it will take years and years. The American people, meanwhile, will simply be sold some other bill of goods about some other phony and never even realize what is being done to them.

That is unfortunately true. At this point there are so many that realize there is something seriously wrong in the US. However they still believe they can 'vote the bums out' and effect a reversal of the damage. Somewhat like mowing down a dandelion but leaving the tap root intact.



Zitat
Among weeds with taproots dandelions are typical; being deep-rooted, they are hard to uproot and if the taproot breaks off near the top, the part that stays in the ground often resprouts, so that for good control the taproot needs to be severed at least several centimetres below ground level.

I liken the damage to a weed with tap roots that spreads by underground runners. Just cutting off one weed at the soil line is merely cosmetic and does nothing to remove the infestation.

Great metaphor.
