IRS' Lois Lerner Put On Involuntary Paid Vacation

Tyler Durden's picture


The IRS' Lois Lerner may not be the most proficient when it comes to hiding years of alleged conservative group persecution, or subsequently pleading the fifth and avoiding self-incrimination in what she dubs is a perfectly legal misunderstanding even as she makes on the record statements defending her innocence, but when it comes to being put on "involuntary" paid leave, she shows private sector efficiency and results. According to Bloomberg, "Lerner is being replaced on an acting basis, the IRS said today. Lerner has been placed on paid administrative leave, said a Democratic aide who was informed of the decision. The move wasn’t voluntary, the aide said." So whereas taxes paid by conservatives were being used to fund her witchhunt of other conservatives, going forward the government worker, who oddly enough is being replaced "despite having done nothing wrong", will be paid to do nothing. Sound like a hole in one mission accomplished for this administration.

And who will be replacing Lerner?

The IRS announced that Ken Corbin, a deputy director in another division of the tax agency that processes individual and business returns, will be acting director of exempt organizations.


Corbin, who has been at the IRS since 1986, is a “proven leader during challenging times,” acting commissioner Danny Werfel wrote in a message to employees today.


“He has strong management experience inside the IRS handling a wide range of processing issues and compliance topics as well as taxpayer service areas,” Werfel wrote. “Combined with his track record of leading large work groups, these skills make him an ideal choice to help lead the Exempt Organizations area through this difficult period.”


Werfel became acting commissioner yesterday, assigned by President Barack Obama and Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew to come up with a strategy for improving the agency within 30 days.

So... they are shutting the IRS down?

As for Wefel, we hope he at least knows how to plead the fifth correctly in 2-4 years if/when he too is called to testify before Congress for auditing everyone who made over $100,000, or whatever passes for the definition of an "unfair fat cat" at a time when total US debt will be $22 trillion, when the Fed has been discredited, when rates are soaring, and when the USSA government has to commission the NSA to look deep inside every savings account - offshore and domestic - just to find whose money it will need to confiscate to pay its own apparatchiks first and foremost?

Whether its paid administrative leave from a cop to an IRS division chief, or annual corporate (read: bank) bonuses during loss years, to million $ retirement packages, its nothing more than hush money to keep those previously involved in or knowledgeable of wrongdoing from incriminating former associates still administering the illegal practices.

The concensess of the parties in Sullivan V USA is that if you do it (crime or anything unlawfull long enough it's ok to keep on doing it because it's the new law-( example the 16th )-- so much for any law and I think all citizens should under stand that any adherance to the Constitution by this gov't is arbritrary. In other words every man can be a law unto himself. All it takes is force and it's all moral. The rule of law is dead and thats being proven every day by TPTB. your life is in jepordy.  I'm suggesting you all act accordingly.

so often when obvious .gov crimes are exposed as in this clear example at the IRS, a commentor or two on ZH posts the public keeps electing these pols..if you are able to think and connect dots, it is obvious fact that our voting system is made to be rigged ..a voting "machine" that has no ability by design to provide a record of your vote once the vote button was pushed or a vote tally system done in Spain by a billionaire owned co. would be enough for anyone who has basic logic and a above room temp IQ.

the elevation of J mccain from dead last to leading in GOP primary or the assination of R Paul's efforts recently show us the elected are selected in a well oiled process.  Deal with that.

Just a reminder to all IRS thugs lurking on ZH... (03-07-2008) Criminal Penalties Under IRC § 7213

1.IRC § 7213 makes the willful unauthorized disclosure of a return or return information a felony punishable by a fine of up to $5,000, or imprisonment of not more than 5 years, or both, together with the costs of prosecution. Upon conviction, officers or employees of the United States will also be dismissed from office or discharged from employment.

Note: IRC § 7213 also covers willful disclosures of software source code data protected by IRC § 7612.

Furthermore, Lerner was up to her statist/Gestapo little eyeblls in all this...

“One thing is clear: this correspondence shows [Lerner’s] direct involvement in the scheme,” wrote Jay Sekulow, chief counsel for the ACLJ. “Further, sending a letter from the top person in the IRS Exempt Organization division to a small Tea Party group also underscores the intimidation used in this targeting ploy.”

The letters coincide with former IRS commissioner Douglas Shulman’s March 2012 testimony before Congress, in which he said there was “absolutely no targeting” of conservative groups at the agency. Months later, an internal IRS investigation concluded that the agency had engaged in such targeting. Obama-administration officials have insisted the targeting stopped in May 2012, although a number of ACLJ clients have received similar requests for information from the IRS within the past year, according to chief counsel Jay Sekulow."

Jefferson County water project bribe where the politicians went to jail...  but nobody at JP Morgan, the bribers in this case, was ever charged.

JP Morgan was the back end of Bernie Madoff's $50,000 million Ponzi scheme...  but nobody there was charged.

Wachovia laundered up to $378 billion in drug money, leased the drug running planes, and the money was never even reported recovered (although they have to know exactly where it is) and nobody gets charged with a crime.  The whistleblower was fired - does that count?  NO!

HSBC laundered drug money and funneled money to terrorists (on behalf of the international banking cartel that finances the terrorists - and our governments!) and nobody gets charged.

And on and on and on...

The criminality is at an insane level.

Note that this isn't Obama going after the right wing, rather, this is the international banking cartel going after people who aren't completely brain dead when it comes to the power structure.

"Let me tell you what I'm really concerned about. In addition to all the other things that I've said. I'm concerned that all of this may have a chilling effect on (IRS) employees. Where they say you know, when normally we would look at certain criteria fairly, not targeting anyone but say uh-oh, I'm worried because I'd better let this go. Lets say we're talking about audits. I'm afraid that I might get called in because I didn't do things properly." - Rep Elijah Cummings D MD

I guess what Cummings is concerned about is a chilling effect on his cut of 'bonuses' his circle of Hell gets from the IRS. Not one dime of IRS collections goes to run the US government. The IRS does give 'bonuses' to federal employees. They all share the loot; remember Boehner giving checks on the House floor? Cummings isn't concerned about the crimes against Citizens of the 50 States by the criminal, unconstitutional IRS, otherwise he'd shut that foreign theft ring down. This is espionage, and the exec extended USAPATRIOT Act. So, how many distinguished frauds will finish their terms in Gitmo?

What punishment ... kind of like being taken off the eastern front to recoup in france before getting sent into italy, whatever that might translate into.  She's one of the elite of the democrat elites, so she is set for life.

While you are at it Mr President, how about a plan to improve the eonomy in 30 days?

Why 30 days, when you can improve things within 30 minutes by sending 80% of all government employees on paid leave.

Mr President, with ll respect to your office, you have proven to be a bigger disappointment than even Bush Junior and to achieve that you really have slithered to new lows.

WIth your gift of the gab you could have made an exceptional litigation lawyer and tht way at least your slipperiness could have at least been condoned.

You get to go run Fannie or Freddie and pocket tens of millions of dollars before you come back through the revolving door in the next Clinton administration.

I'll snap some pictures if I see her in Ensanada this weekend, ironically home to dozens of Americans hiding from the IRS.

Ha! She would get it worse than a uniformed soldier in London.

They are trying to figure out what to do if she decides to:

1. Take the fall.

If she does, for credability sake someone from the WH will have to go with her as she didn't act alone.

2. Don't take the fall and blow the whistle.

Watch the smear campaign start.

Yeah about the helicopter ride, lots of unaccounted shoulder mounted missiles still in the wind.

If she deliberately blew the fifth out her ass so as to be forced to testify because she knows the White House is going to throw her to the wolves, then she realizes she is one of the best links they have to "the lightbringer" and his involvement it looks like she might be deciding if she want's to survive this or not or even if it's possible- very tricky stuff cutting deals with either stripe of fed..

It's probably not a comforting thought for her I imagine.

.."The government consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office. Their principal device to that end is to search out groups who pant and pine for something they can't get and to promise to give it to them. Nine times out of ten that promise is worth nothing. The tenth time is made good by looting A to satisfy B. In other words, government is a broker in pillage, and every election is sort of an advance auction sale of stolen goods." H.L. Mencken.

Lerner has been placed on paid administrative leave…..will be paid to do nothing.

Well, in fairness she may still have to spend a little more time answering questions before a Congressional committee or two. And let’s not forget that book deal she’s sure to have coming her way now. Those things don’t write themselves you know.

Or...she'll become part of a larger play. 

Imagine, some disgruntled TP patsy (also an NRA member) just so happens to be in the exact place and time she is vulnerable to a lethal handgun shot to the head (and he of course gunned down by the valiant FBI prior to his capture and interogation).  Her horrendous murder to this TP/NRA extremist will pave the way for the ultimate trifecta...justifying IRS scrutiny of the extremist TP, justifying new Exectutive Orders for a major gun-grab, and setting off a firestorm as several TPs and gun-owners fight back, thus further justifying the DHS to go weapons-hot with those 2-billion JHP .40s...

Game over.

the nazi bitch is guilty as sin...anyone who believes the claptrap that the bitch invoked the fifth amendment because she was innocent is a fucktard.....those poor kids that the onazi thugs gunned down with 10,000 men in boston couldn't even claim miranda rights until the shooting was over.....and this bitch is treated like royalty with paid administrative leave.....the sad shame is that she is taking the hit, though once this has blown over next week she will be back in her nazi job.
