Fox guarding the henhouse in IRS targeting investigation

In an unbelievable but sadly unsurprising move, the Department of Justice appointed an Obama donor to be the lead investigator for the IRS targeting scandal. That’s like having a member of the Muslim Brotherhood as lead investigator for Benghazi.

According to the Washington Post

Two Republican lawmakers and a conservative legal group are questioning the Justice Department’s selection of a Democratic donor to lead the agency’s probe into the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of certain advocacy groups during the 2010 and 2012 election cycles”. DOJ trial attorney Barbara Bosserman, who donated a combined $6,750 to the Obama campaign and Democratic National Committee, was asked to be removed from the case by Representatives Darrel Issa and Jim Jordan, saying her involvement is “highly inappropriate and has compromised the administration’s investigation of the IRS.”

The Justice department’s response was typical, “It is contrary to department policy and a prohibited personnel practice under federal law to consider the political affiliation of career employees or other non-merit factors in making personnel decisions,” said Justice spokeswoman Dena Iverson. “Removing a career employee from an investigation or case due to political affiliation, as chairmen Issa and Jordan have requested, could also violate the equal opportunity policy and the law.”

It is unconscionable that the same Obama administration that wanted to know political activities and contributions of private sector companies submitting for defense contracts now feels political affiliations do not matter in investigating its own wrongdoing.

This administration continually shows blatant disrespect — and does anyone believe Ms. Bosserman would be objective in her investigation? We have already seen several instances of the DOJ investigating itself and finding no fault — why should this case be any different? And where is Lois Lerner anyway?

As we reported yesterday, the liberal media is going berserk over the traffic lane issue in New Jersey but refuses to mention anything as egregious as an administration that uses its power against its own citizens.

The IRS scandal is (yet another) black eye on the Obama administration, something the president said he learned about from news reports and no one in the media got upset then. President Obama said he’d get to the bottom of this. Well, we’re waiting, and putting a fox out to guard the henhouse certainly is not the answer.

Am I out on a limb on this? Do you believe Ms. Bosserman will be objective in her investigation or should there be an independent investigator appointed? And where is Lois Lerner?

    • They’re all living in their glass and or appointed houses. Removing this aberration of an American administration will not be accomplished via Constitutional methods. Congress, the DOJ, the president and his appointees all know this. It’s pretty hard removing this administration when half the country knows that all they need to do is vote for a living. We no longer have congressional representation. FORGET THE ADDRESS !

  1. BWAH HA HA HA HA HA being objective is not the goal of this administration. To get thee behind us Satan and out of the limelight is always the goal. So of course, there will be no wrongdoing on the part of the IRS or LOIS retired now on our dime Lerner. Until we rid ourselves of these marxists, nothing will be beyond their grasp.

  2. These interlopers only quote policy and law and ethics when it benefits them. Where was the adherence to the law and ethics when the IRS was doing the targeting?

  3. You cant fight these Marxist until you start calling them what they all are . Communists ! WE need someone like Senator McCarthy . MCCARTHYISM TIMES NOW !

  4. And the corruption continues as our Republicans in Congress sit back and do nothing. I can almost bet that the Obama administration is going to have left wings investigating Governor Christie’s traffic lane debacle.

  5. A News report today announced that every, (EVERY) member of congress is a millionaire. While Veterans and middle class families are trying to make ends meet and heads of household are out of a job, they’re planning their next vacation. This entire congress needs to be removed., every last one of them !

  6. Thank God for men like Allen West. There’s still hope for our Great Nation and I pray for the day when American Values return to the forefront and we all start voting for Great Leaders and not American Idols.
