The adventures of Lois Lerner, IRS and FEC commissar continue with this prequel from her past. And there is a special guest star appearance from our very own Dick Durbin.

The IRS scandal may have its roots in Illinois politics. Specifically, the 1996 U.S. Senate race between then-Democrat Congressman Dick Durbin and conservative Republican State Rep. Al Salvi.

More than a decade before his 2010 letter to IRS officials urging the agency to target conservative organizations, U.S. Senator Dick Durbin’s political career crossed paths with Ms. Lerner when she was head of the Enforcement Division of the Federal Election Commission (FEC), and directly involved in the 1996 Illinois U.S. Senate race.

Soon after the IRS story broke, Al Salvi told Illinois Review that it was IRS official Lois Lerner who represented the FEC in a Democrat complaint against him. According to Salvi, Lerner was, without question, politically motivated, and went so far as to make him an offer: ”Promise me you will never run for office again, and we’ll drop this case.”

The Chicago way. It’s not just for Chicago.

    The ends justify the means always, with the left. Nothing can get in the way of their zest to communize this nation.

    Sounds like Ms. Lerner should start considering what her life behind bars might be like

    No wonder she took the fifth!

    What's most important is to follow orders without question.
    Do this and you will get promoted.

    The democrat/leftist system is a system of non-morality.

    It would be interesting to take Ms. Lerner as a test example
    and make a schematic or tree branch diagram of her entire career
    showing who her bosses were and who her underlings were.

    And for graduates who are thinking, well yeah duh,
    it used to be 'do what's right.'

    Talk about a smoking gun. Now we have an eyewitness to Lerner pulling the trigger. No wonder she got hired to the IRS position she holds.

    Lerner is a dyed in the wool goose stepper. She won't roll over on Obama. She knows Obama will pardon every political criminal who helped the revolution.

    This American Democratic Party seems to be an institutional mafia at work! Some of his more infamous faces seems to participate in illicit associations at least! Will these capo mafia stay safe for the rest of their life?
