Perhaps unbeknownst to her, former IRS official Lois Lerner will be making her film debut Oct. 14 in a documentary where she’s one of the villains.
The film is called Unfair: Exposing the IRS, and it will screen in 674 theaters nationwide, though for one-night only, courtesy of Fathom Events, a company that brings sports, concerts, speeches and other alternative entertainment to movie screens.
The movie is about alleged abuse at the IRS, the agency responsible for collecting taxes in the U.S. Looming large is a scandal revealed last year wherein Republican and some Democratic lawmakers accused Lerner, at the time the director of the exempt organizations unit of the IRS, of delaying the applications of conservative groups seeking tax-free status from 2010-2013.
The writer of the movie claims that Lerner was just “one bad guy” in a corrupt system and that she was merely the scapegoat. He also claims that this isn’t about “rogue agents.”
Of course it isn’t. The orders came from the White House.
