Hooray! More IRS Misconduct

Here’s two via Ace and DrewM. Would have been just the one from DrewM, but Dreamhost’s servers took a massive, well, you know, earlier. First, the IRS is being sued

The Internal Revenue Service is now facing a class action lawsuit over allegations that it improperly accessed and stole the health records of some 10 million Americans, including medical records of all California state judges.

According to a report by Courthousenews.com, an unnamed HIPAA-covered entity in California is suing the IRS, alleging that some 60 million medical records from 10 million patients were stolen by 15 IRS agents. The personal health information seized on March 11, 2011, included psychological counseling, gynecological counseling, sexual/drug treatment and other medical treatment data.

“This is an action involving the corruption and abuse of power by several Internal Revenue Service agents,” the complaint reads. “No search warrant authorized the seizure of these records; no subpoena authorized the seizure of these records; none of the 10,000,000 Americans were under any kind of known criminal or civil investigation and their medical records had no relevance whatsoever to the IRS search. IT personnel at the scene, a HIPPA facility warning on the building and the IT portion of the searched premises, and the company executives each warned the IRS agents of these privileged records,” it continued.

Gee, and people like Obama tell us not to worry about the tyranny from big government. Especially when directors are called low level employees

The director of the Internal Revenue Service division under fire for singling out conservative groups sent a 2012 letter under her name to one such group, POLITICO has learned. The March 2012 letter was sent to the Ohio-based American Patriots Against Government Excess (American PAGE) under the name of Lois Lerner, the director of the Exempt Organizations Division…at the time of the letter, the group was in the midst of the application process for tax-exempt nonprofit status — a process that would stretch for nearly three years and involve queries for detailed information on its social media activity, its organizational set-up, bylaws, membership and interactions with political officials. The letter threatened to close American PAGE’s case file unless additional information was received within 60 days.

Who would have thought this could happen when no one, particularly not 7 Democrat Senators who wrote a letter to to the IRS asking for this to happen, were asking for this to happen?

It can’t be said, written, and Tweeted enough: the IRS is the enforcement agency for Obamacare.

    Amen brother!

    We’ve returned to the tyrannical feudal days when taxes, regulations, and monitoring were used as punishment.

    When IRS can seize data, funnel and leak that personal secret information especially to members of congress and political candidates to use against other candidates, our nation is lost.

    For those who are our Democrat friends, please, please ask yourself how you would feel if the IRS stole and leaked private secret information to the Republican party under the watch of a Republican president, and that information was used to attack his political competitors, or punish and gain private personal information from Democrat parties\groups? Ask yourself truthfully, how would you feel?

    You’d rightly claim that there were fascists in charge and are looking to overpower and suppress the freedom of speech and the freedom to assemble against a specific political group. I hope so at least.

  2. You’ll never get an answer from them, GB, because they know that Republicans play by a more honest set of rules, and if Republicans cross that line the 90% Dem voting media would destroy them.
