Holder Aide Accidentally Calls Darrell Issa’s Office to Ask for Help Spinning IRS Scandal

As more and more information leaks out about the IRS scandal, Eric Holder is trying more and more to furiously spin the information to cover his own butt. Unfortunately, the aide, Brian Fallon, called the wrong number — and accidentally asked Darrell Issa’s office for help instead of helpful liberal reporters.

Eric Holder with Darrell Issa

A senior communications aide to Attorney General Eric Holder seemingly called House oversight committee chairman Darrell Issa’s staff by accident and asked for their help spinning new revelations about the IRS scandal, Issa said in a September 8 letter to Holder.

The aide, Brian Fallon, is a former senior aide to Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and a well-known personality on Capitol Hill. The letter describes Fallon as “audibly shaken” when he realizes his request to leak documents to help get ahead of news stories about them was mistakenly made to the very office he was seeking to undermine. Issa believes the call was intended to be made to Democratic Rep. Elijah Cumming’s staff, the ranking member on the oversight panel, the letter said.

So the most corrupt administration ever epically failed at the one thing they should be really, really good at. Then again, Obama did promise transparency in his administration, which evidently just means that he’ll openly flaunt his corruption for all of us to see.
