Last Friday the head of the Tax-Exempt Organization Division of the IRS admitted that some employees had targeted conservative groups. Since then, a lot of things have happened including one resignation, an open criminal investigation, and a lot of GOP masturbation.
And now that the President has named an acting commissioner
to replace the last acting commissioner, we hope this is sign that we're on the road to some kind of conclusion, although I'm sure some people won't be satisfied until ObamaCare is repealed while John Boehner places one of those dog cones on Bo while wearing the American flag as a cape. Only then
will justice be served.
Still, people forget that there is collateral damage in situations like these. People who had nothing to do with the transgressions committed by a few employees are having their everyday lives affected and that is the real injustice here. What am I talking about? I'll tell you what I'm talking about — SOFTBALL GAMES ARE BEING CANCELLED
As the much-maligned agency faces withering scrutiny, IRS employees have pulled out of public events. Lois Lerner, the head of the division that examines nonprofit claims, canceled plans to speak at a graduation ceremony for her law-school alma mater, Western New England University. The IRS softball team canceled a scheduled match with the office of Senator John Cornyn, the Texas Republican said on Facebook.
Just take a moment to put yourself in the shoes of the captain of the IRS team. You know how serious he takes these games. This had to be an excruciating decision. I hope all the political games and pandering are worth it.
