Lois Lerner, best known for her time as the White House’s IRS official and her lost emails, is in the news again as more dirt has been uncovered regarding the incredible scandal. United States House of Representative House members of the Republican persuasion have found emails in which the woman referred to some persons in the Republican Party as a—holes and crazies. No doubt, it is being asserted that these emails show her detestation toward Republicans and conservatives, according to a Fox News report on Wednesday. The previously unrevealed emails are from November of 2012.
Specifically, in one email Lerner appeared to be talking with someone about a vacation in Great Britain. She described hearing some people talking about how America is going down the tubes. The person she was communicating with said that Lerner should hear the whacko wing of the GOP and went on to say that the U.S. is through because there are too many foreigners sucking the teal. It’s time to hunker down, buy ammo and food, and prepare for the end, according to Lerner’s co-communicator. The message also said that the right wing radio shows are scary to listen to. In Lerner’s blatant response, she wrote “Great. Maybe we are through if there are that many a—holes.”
According to the Huffington Post, in another email exchange she received about how rabid the radio show callers are, Lerner again had an inappropriate and disrespectful response. She wrote, “So we don’t need to worry about alien terrorists. It’s our own crazies that will take us down.” She also had an anti-class statement in her exchanges as she described visiting an “Edwardian English village which is full of large houses. Lerner wrote that the area with large houses “have been ruined by letting the hoi paloi live there!” She went on to write that “These people have ruined everything with their equality push!” Hoi polloi is a term used to label ‘common people’ of which Lerner must believe she is not.
The now-available emails were released by Dave Camp who is the chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. They were released on Wednesday. Camp, a Republican representative from Michigan released the emails as part of his renewed call for the United States Department of Justice to appoint a special counsel to investigate the Lerner scandalous situation.
As one may recall, Lois Lerner is the former IRS official who was in charge of the IRS when the governmental agency was accused of targeting conservative groups. The targeting had to do with stopping the groups from seeking a tax-exempt status which was being granted to other organizations. Camp is using the newly-released emails to show how biased Lerner is – and was during the scandal of which she is the center character. The White House – and, in particular, President Barack Obama – continues to embrace Lerner and refuses to denounce any of her actions.
