Dog ate LOTS more emails: Now IRS claims it can't find emails from SIX MORE employees
That's because In addition to Lois Lerner’s emails, the IRS also conveniently claims to have lost emails to and from six other IRS employees involved in the targeting of conservative groups.
One of those figures is Nikole Flax, who served as chief of staff to a man who at the time of the targeting was Deputy Commissioner and would later serve as Acting Commissioner of the IRS – a position from which he was fired for his role in the targeting of conservative groups.
The timeframe for which Ms. Flax’s communications are purportedly unrecoverable covers when the Washington, DC office ordered the Cincinnati field office to send abusive questionnaires to conservative non-profit groups, while liberal groups weren't required to provide similar information.
You may recall that the first story was that Lois Lerner's emails couldn't be recovered because her computer crashed. But clearly, the crash of Lerner's computer wouldn't have taken out all the emails of the six other key IRS witnesses. So what piece of equipment will eventually get blamed?
Or do you think by some bizarre coincidence seven IRS computers crashed and took out thousands of emails covering the same time period?
Yeh, dat's it.
