    The IRS/NSA/Fast and Furious Scandal Deniers

    seem to have avoided to $70,000,000 bonus scandal. Is it because they believe nothing can go wrong on this presidents watch?

    • WSJ article today says the IRS thing is not over just because some guy named Cummings says it is (typical "keep moving, nothing to see here"). Issa has not been "crushed" and I believe Cummings' conduct is going to lead the origin of the crimes directly to the Oval Office. Job well done Mr. Cummings, well done indeed!

        It's over. Just as Fast & Furious, just as the NSA, and the IRS. Issa, a convicted felon, has played out every possible avenue.... and has found NOTHING.

        Sentiment: Strong Sell

      • AP story also on yahoo news:

        WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Internal Revenue Service's screening of groups seeking tax-exempt status was broader and lasted longer than has been previously disclosed, the new head of the agency said Monday.

        An internal IRS document obtained by The Associated Press said that besides "tea party," lists used by screeners to pick groups for close examination also included the terms "Israel," ''Progressive" and "Occupy." The document said an investigation into why specific terms were included was still underway.

        In a conference call with reporters, Danny Werfel said that after becoming acting IRS chief last month, he discovered wide-ranging and improper terms on the lists and said screeners were still using them. He did not specify what terms were on the lists, but said he suspended the use of all such lists immediately.

        "There was a wide-ranging set of categories and cases that spanned a broad spectrum" on the lists, Werfel said. He added that his aides found those lists contained "inappropriate criteria that was in use."
