A report at the link below says congressional investigators reported Wednesday they have uncovered emails showing that a former Internal Revenue Service official at the heart of the tea party investigation sought an audit involving a Republican senator in 2012.
The emails show former IRS official Lois Lerner mistakenly received an invitation to an event that was meant to go to Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Iowa.
The event organizer apparently offered to pay for Grassley's wife to attend the event. In an email to another IRS official, Lerner suggests referring the matter for an audit, saying it might be inappropriate for the group to pay for his wife.
"Perhaps we should refer to exam?" Lerner wrote.
At the time of the email exchange it wasn’t even known if either the senator or Mrs. Grassley would attend.
It was unclear from the emails whether Lerner was suggesting that Grassley or the group be audited — or both.
Grassley had been an outspoken critic of the way the IRS policed tax-exempt groups even before the tea party controversy erupted last year.
Mr. Obama famously said on October 25, 2010 in an interview in Los Angeles for a Univision radio program, “we're gonna punish our enemies, and we're gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us.”
It has been obvious that the White House has been using the IRS to help him ‘punish his enemies.’
