Another DC hearing on the IRS scandal resulted in more "I don't knows" from folks who were either asleep at the wheel, conveniently failed to notice or are blatantly lying.
Today we get to hear Lois Lerner, head of the IRS Tax Exempt Status office invoke the 5th over and over again. Below, Doug Shulman who headed the IRS up until last November refuses to aplogize for the incident.
It’s the gift that keeps on giving.
The Richland County Election Commission met behind closed doors again yesterday to discuss their lone remaining candidate to take over the job once held by Lillian McBride. Two other candidates with question marks on their resumes have already dropped out. Unfortunately the final candidate comes with red flags of his own.
Howard Jackson, current Orangeburg County elections director, was the focus of a SLED investigation shortly after being appointed elections director in 2008 in a probe over the distribution and collection of absentee ballots. The case was closed after no evidence of criminal wrongdoing was discovered.
Jackson however failed to disclose this when initially interviewed for the position; otherwise I wouldn’t have a problem with it. What’s worse, his failing to mention it or the hiring board’s failure to uncover it? Tough question. Either way it’s just one more reason for the voters of Richland County to wonder if elections will ever be the same again as long as this bunch is running the show.
Here’s an idea. Start from scratch. And while you’re at it open the doors wide for everyone to see the process unfold. Only then will the commission have a chance to begin to rebuild trust with voters.
Yesterday’s meeting was the second closed door session in less than a week and there is another scheduled for tomorrow. Open it up for all to come and see. Maybe they will have a few ideas about what is best for the county since this board doesn’t seem to have a clue.
Mentioned this morning that my wife was watching Piers Morgan on CNN last night when she realized he didn't say a thing about yesterday's Benghazi testimony.
Piers opened with the Cleveland kidnapping case, went to the Jody Arias verdict and back to the Cleveland case again.
Sure these are big stories, but what about Benghazi? On second thought, is the Arias case that big of a story? It is made for TV, but check out today's State Newspaper. There isn't a single word about it! It sure did provide the cover that the MSM needed to ignore the Benghazi story.
CLICK to see how the media did, or in this case did not cover yesterday's Benghazi hearings.
Dick Harpootlian would like to know apparently. This past Friday at the annual BIG DEM get together, Harpootlian dropped this line that left some of us wondering if libs would have screamed racism if a Republican had said it.
