Tar and Feathers

Lois Lerner
Apology not accepted, Lois

As Professor Reynolds likes to recommend in such cases.

IRS admits targeting conservative groups for review, and improperly requesting lists of their donors.  On the bright side, Lois Lerner, the IRS official who oversaw this egregious abuse of power, says that "[t]he IRS would like to apologize for that."   Which of course makes everything ok, because the Constitution clearly says the government can do whatever it pleases as long as it apologizes afterwards.

UPDATE: Lerner knew about the targeting of conservative groups in 2011; did nothing.

UPDATE: Catholic law professor Anne Hendershott believes she was audited for opposing Obamacare.   From her account, certainly sounds like intimidation.


  1. "Thoughts on topics of interest mainly to Catholics, including sacraments, the Virgin Mary, saints, angels, popes, feast days, liturgy, liturgical music, prayer, Church Fathers, Doctors of the Church, rosaries, religious congregations, novenas, Catholic education, and the Sacred Heart."

    Or in the case of Lois Lerner, "or none of the above".
