SURPRISE: The IRS Has “Lost” the Emails of Five More Employees

September 5, 2014

Has Saturday Night Live done a single sketch about the IRS scandal? I ask that question honestly because I never watch SNL anymore and because I know they would have if this happened on a Republican president’s watch.

More IRS employees lost emails

The IRS on Friday told Congress that five of the 82 people being questioned about the agency’s tea party targeting scandal lost emails as a result of computer crashes, including one official who worked closely with former IRS official Lois Lerner.

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, in a report sent to the committees investigating whether the IRS unfairly targeted conservative groups in recent years, said 18 of the 82 people “had some type of technical computer issue” between September 2009 and February 2014. Five of those “had hard drive issues that resulted in a probable loss of emails during portions of the four-year period.”

When one IRS employee loses her emails in the midst of an investigation it’s news. When multiple IRS employees eventually claim the same thing it’s comedy.

It’s maddening and sad but it’s comedy.
