It’s all one big revolving door between the Democratic Party and the Federal government. And it’s the same job. Help the left win.

 Ex-IRS official Lois Lerner talked about taking a job with President Barack Obama’s nonprofit advocacy group Organizing for Action (OFA) while she had official oversight at the IRS over nonprofit tax-exempt groups.

The revelation was made Wednesday in the House Ways and Means Committee’s referral letter to the Department of Justice (DOJ) to prosecute Lerner on criminal charges. Ways and Means voted to refer Lerner to DOJ.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is expected to vote Thursday to hold Lerner in contempt of Congress for refusing to answer questions about the years-long improper targeting of
conservative groups that Lerner oversaw from Washington, D.C

Note that she sent that e-mail about working for OFA just three weeks after she intervened in the review process to ask whether Crossroads GPS, an arm of Karl Rove’s American Crossroads, was being audited.

That was done in the name of making sure that 501(c)(4) orgs weren’t spending impermissibly on political campaigns after the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision. Oddly enough, though, only conservative 501(c)(4)s were of concern to Lerner; according to Ways and Means, she “turn[ed] a blind eye to similarly-organized liberal groups, like Priorities USA.” No wonder she thought of a job at OFA.

She was working for O arguably as hard as they were.

That’s the problem. We have extensive institutional infiltration by an arrogant left that is becoming increasingly casual about breaking the rules because it knows that there will be no accountability.

    Concerning people like Lerner, others like her in the IRS, members of Congress they may have colluded with, and probably all the way up to the administration, this web site’s tag line says it all.
