The Internal Revenue Service has lost two years worth of emails to and from embattled former tax official Lois Lerner, the agency told congressional investigators on Friday.
The IRS promised on May 8 to turn over all her emails but now blames a computer crash for huge tranches of missing documents.
Lerner is under investigation for allegedly orchestrating a years-long program that targeted tea party groups and other conservative organizations for unusually intrusive scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status beginning in the year before the 2010 congressional midterm elections.
Whoopsie daisy. They magically disappeared.
Well guess what else turned up missing? My desire to pay income tax.
