Lois Lerner Directly Involved With IRS Targeting Scheme?

It’s no wonder she pled the 5th (via Gator Doug)

(National Review) A series of letters suggests that senior IRS official Lois Lerner was directly involved in the agency’s targeting of conservative groups as recently as April 2012, more than nine months after she first learned of the activity.

Lerner, the director of the IRS exempt organizations office in Washington, D.C., signed cover letters to 15 conservative organizations currently represented by the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) between in March and April of 2012. The letters, such as this one sent to the Ohio Liberty Council on March 16, 2012, informed the groups applying for tax-exempt status that the IRS was “unable to make a final determination on your exempt status without additional information,” and included a list of detailed questions of the kind that a Treasury inspector general’s audit found to be inappropriate. Some of the groups to which Lerner sent letters are still awaiting approval.

Hmm, if this is true then she committed perjury when she gave her little “I did nothing wrong” statement to the House committee. She can join Eric Holder on the unemployment line, or possibly jail.

    This may be a little off topic, but in the letter Lerner signs to the applicant, there is a warning that failure to provide the answers within 60 days will result in the application being placed in “suspense.”

    My question is “where is the time frame / deadline placed on the government to respond?”

    This is something I ran into in while helping a disabled friend waddle through the muck of applying for disability. Typically letters would arrive from the government demanding answers within a time frame (usually 14 days) and once the government had gotten the information, their response could take up to 6 months.

    There is something inherently wrong with that double standard..

    Hay, she said she did nothing wrong. So we should leave her alone. Just like when the IRS targets you and you tell them you did nothing wrong.
