Lois Lerner is entitled to her opinion. We’re entitled to disagree. Given a choice between Dahmer and Lerner, we’d prefer Dahmer. Sure, he killed a few people, but Lois Lerner may very well have influenced the 2012 Presidential election by steamrolling Tea Party groups who couldn’t participate because their tax exemptions were held up.
Lois Lerner will likely maintain her innocence to the end. Heck, so did John Gotti. He too did less damage to the nation than Lerner.
Employers won’t hire her. She’s been berated with epithets like “dirty Jew.” Federal agents have guarded her house because of death threats. And she’s spent hundreds of thousands of dollars defending herself against accusations she orchestrated a coverup in a scandal that has come to represent everything Americans hate about the IRS.
Lois Lerner is toxic — and she knows it. But she refuses to recede into anonymity or beg for forgiveness for her role in the IRS tea party-targeting scandal.
“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Lerner said in her first press interview since the scandal broke 16 months ago. “I’m proud of my career and the job I did for this country.”
Obviously, as with all of the Obama administration flacks we can think of, Lerner has very low standards. As with Democrats, if she didn’t have low standards she wouldn’t have any standards.
The interview was with Politico, a Democratic Party house organ.
What we’d like to know is, since she’s been held in Contempt of Congress, why hasn’t the House arrested her. They don’t have to foist the job off on the Department of Justice, they have their own little police force and they can toss Lois in the tombs with no help from anybody. We’d love to see her rot for a few weeks, heck, maybe until the next Congress in January, and lets see if that refreshes her memory.
And Lois, we’re not feeling sorry for you at all. You’re collecting a $107,000 per year pension. Personally, we’d love to see you rot in hell. And one final thought, we hope your legal bills bankrupt you.
