Lois Lerner had better lawyer up.

Lois Lerner, the senior executive in charge of the IRS tax exemption department and the person at the center of the exploding scandal over the IRS targeting conservative, evangelical and pro-Israel non-profits, has been given $42,531 in bonuses since 2009.

That figure was included in data provided by the IRS in response to a Freedom of Information Act request by The Washington Examiner. Lerner is director of the IRS exempt organizations division, which processes and approves or denies applications from groups seeking tax-exempt status.

Lerner’s group had “rogue” employees abusing the president’s political opponents. Those “rogues” apparently include her own self.

The director of the Internal Revenue Service division under fire for singling out conservative groups sent a 2012 letter under her name to one such group, POLITICO has learned. The March 2012 letter was sent to the Ohio-based American Patriots Against Government Excess (American PAGE) under the name of Lois Lerner, the director of the Exempt Organizations Division…

And

Lois Lerner, the senior IRS official at the center of the decision to target tea party groups for burdensome tax scrutiny, signed paperwork granting tax-exempt status to the Barack H. Obama Foundation, a shady charity headed by the president’s half-brother that operated illegally for years.

In that latter case, Obama had collected money long before he was granted his tax-exempt status. Lerner helped him out by making his status retroactive all the way to 2008, shielding him from exposure to any tax evasion nastiness.

Yeah, it's starting to look like the "two rogue employees" are Lerner and Miller.

Retroactive? As in ex post facto? Well, sure, if he had applied back then. I'm guessing he hadn't.

I just loved watching the news on Friday and Monday. There was just so much news, the poor newsies were breathless. There was not enough time to fit in all the news. There was just so much to say, so much with which to keep up. They even said so. "There are busy news days, and then there is today!"

I watched the live Press briefing by Carney on Friday. He was just getting turned on the spit over the fire. Loved it! Just loved it! Bwahahahaa!
