An IRS employee illegally accessed Christine O’Donnell’s tax records while she was running for the Senate

July 18, 2013

 Two days ago we learned that the IRS was improperly scrutinizing the tax records of at least four political candidates and/or donors (This is what they are admitting to at this point, I think we will learn it was much more extensive as time goes on) and today we might just have learned who one of the victims was.

  Shortly after announcing her decision to run for the Senate a tax lien was put on a house which the IRS thought belonged to Tea Party favorite Christine O’Donnell. Needless to say the left ran with this in an effort to paint O’Donnell as a tax cheat but there was one problem–she no longer owned the house so the lien was removed and chalked up to a computer glitch. But the damage was done and the left scored a victory. Move along, nothing to see here.

  Except there is something to see here.

   We now may have a partial answer to the question of which political candidates the IRS improperly scrutinized because it just so happens that on the day the lien was mistakenly put on a house that Christine O’Donnell no longer owned her tax records were breached by someone within the IRS.

Now Mr. Martel, a criminal investigator for the Treasury Department’s inspector general for tax administration, was telling her that an official in Delaware state government had improperly accessed her records on that very same day.

  So much for that computer glitch excuse, this was an intentional and criminal act designed to bring down a political adversary of Barack Obama by whatever means necessary and it may have played some role in her demise.

  As bad as this is I believe it is only the tip of the iceberg because I believe one of the people whom the IRS illegally scrutinized was none other than Barack Obama’s opponent in the 2012 presidential election–Mitt Romney.

  I am speculating here but during the campaign Harry Reid made the claim that Mitt Romney paid no taxes during a ten year period and he claimed that the people who told him this had seen Mitt Romney’s tax returns. I want to know who gave Harry Reid this information and how they got it in the first place.

  But on top of that I want to know how high up in the chain of command  the targeting of political candidates goes, because we are now learning in the case of the other IRS targeting scandal (of Tea Party and conservative groups) that contrary to the claim it was the work of rogue agents in the field the order came down from on high to send these applications to a person appointed by Barack Obama for a final decision. We know how that worked out and I think it is self-evident that the same applies here as well.

  Oh, by the way, Eric Holder has refused to have the Department of Injustice investigate this matter.
