WASHINGTON TIMES (external - login to view) Ė The IRS told Congress on Friday that it has lost some of former employee Lois G. Lernerís emails, including some covering communications with Democrats in Congress and with other parts of the government, according to the Houseís top tax-law writer.The IRS is obviously steeped in corruption. If this isnít an argument to abolish the IRS, I donít know what is.
Rep. Dave Camp, chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, said he was stunned that it took more than a year into the investigation for the IRS to inform Congress that it didnít have those emails.
The agency blamed a computer crash for the mishap.
ďThe fact that I am just learning about this, over a year into the investigation, is completely unacceptable and now calls into question the credibility of the IRSís response to congressional inquiries,Ē Mr. Camp said. ďThere needs to be an immediate investigation and forensic audit by Department of Justice as well as the Inspector General.Ē
