Lois Lerner: Conservatives Are A-Holes
By Ben Smith on 7.30.14 | 1:49PM
A new series of emails was released today by the House Ways and Means Committee in the investigation into the improper targeting of conservatives by IRS official Lois Lerner. The emails, viewable here, show her disdain for conservatives:
Great maybe we are through if there are that many a#@holes.
This was in a response to co-worker making fun of “preppers,” people concerned about the shocking growth in the size of the welfare state and immigration.
Further in the exchange, Lerner says:
So we need to worry about alien teRrorists. It’s our own crazies who will take us down.
Amusing, especially with that capital "R" as if this is some high school prank gone awry.
In an open letter to disgraced Attorney General Eric Holder, Committee Chairman David Camp states:
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 concludes his letter by saying that while has not seen a lot of work by the DOJ on this investigation's behalf, he hopes this will stir them into action.
Don't hold your breath, Congressman. Only a special prosecutor will do at this point.
