New evidence submitted to the Justice Department and provided by Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI), shows just how deeply Lois Lerner’s hatred of conservatives and conservative organizations ran.
A newly discovered e-mail exchange shows Lerner and a colleague discussing “right wing radio” programs, with Lerner referring to conservatives as “crazies” and “a**holes” that are a bigger threat to ruin the country than terrorists.
The exchange can be seen below…
In a press release provided by the Ways and Means Committee, a discussion of criminal wrongdoing by Lerner is discussed, and a plea for the Justice Department to take the new evidence into account for a serious investigation is made.
A letter from Camp to the Justice Department reads in part:
Lerner had a bias against conservatives:
A newly discovered email exchange from Ms. Lerner’s official IRS email account, dated November 9, 2012, directly demonstrates Ms. Lerner’s deep animus towards conservatives, which she refers to as “—holes.” Lerner further illustrates her disgust with conservatives, even suggesting they will ruin the country. In her email, Lerner states: “So we don’t need to worry about alien terrorists. (sic) It’s our own crazies that will take us down.” This email shows that Ms. Lerner’s mistreatment of conservative groups was driven by her personal hostility toward conservatives.
Camp’s letter also makes the point that Lerner used her personal email for official IRS business, possibly leaving confidential taxpayer information vulnerable to attack on her home computer.
