CNN Mocks IRS Over Claim That Lois Lerner Emails Are Missing: “Do You Believe In The Easter Bunny?”
It looks like no one is buying the Internal Revenue Service’s claim that former executive Lois Lerner’s computer crashed, destroying thousands of e-mails requested by House investigators. Even CNN just laughed at this sleazy, grown-up version of “my dog ate my homework.”
“Do you believe in Santa Claus? Do you believe that Lois Lerner’s emails suddenly went ‘poof?’”
King added that he agreed with Rep. Dave Camp (R-MI) who said that it was “unacceptable” that this information was just coming to light now, over a year after the investigation into allegations that the IRS targeted conservative political groups with undue scrutiny began…“Waiting a year to tell the Congress makes me suspicious,” King said.
Yes, I think everyone old enough to tie their shoes is suspicious of these preposterous tall tales. But while it’s tempting to laugh, it’s not funny. The IRS is a government agency with enormous power, and it seems it has no qualms about lying to Congress and the public.
