No One Hates the IRS More Than House Republicans … Pity John Koskinen, who agreed to take one of the worst jobs in America and is now being punished for it.  In 2013, President Barack Obama asked Koskinen to take over at the Internal Revenue Service amid budgetary chaos, deteriorating morale and a simmering scandal. House Republicans are now trying to impeach him.  – Bloomberg

We don’t pity John Koskinen. We watched a good deal of the IRS hearings as they unfolded and it was fairly obvious a cover-up was taking place.

The people involved either weren’t telling the truth or were subject to convenient memory lapses.

It was obvious that higher-up officials at the IRS, presumably at the behest of the Obama administration, has schemed to delay the non profit status of Tea Party groups opposed to Obama.

It was obvious as well that no matter how much evidence was collected by the committee under Republican leadership, the Democratic Department of Justice would not bring an indictment.

And it did not.

IRS officials destroyed emails by “accident” while blaming the actions of the IRS on out-of-control low level individuals.

The woman at the center of the scandal, Lois Lerner, resigned and took the fifth. The Committee talked about indicting her as a first step to putting her in prison, but nothing has happened.

The cover-up went all the way to the top. Koskinen himself, while giving the appearance of being cooperative, always seemed a step behind the investigation.

There were many things he didn’t know about. And after a while it became obvious that he didn’t want to know.

Koskinen’s job, as an Obama appointee, was to clean up and move on.

More:

Blame was duly apportioned … The agency’s boss resigned, a top deputy retired, and the director of the offending unit was placed on leave and declared in contempt of Congress. Half a dozen congressional committees vowed to fumigate every pixel of offending detail. One managed to produce an 8,000-page report.

It certainly sounds like there were repercussions, but not really. Someone retired. Ms. Lerner was questioned by Congress. A voluminous report was produced and ignored.

Delaying non profit status of anti-Obama groups was only the latest IRS sin.

A previous scandal saw the IRS apologizing for what reports called “a lavish 2010 conference in California that included an elaborate Star Trek spoof training video.”

The entire conference cost upwards of $3 million and the IRS later warned expenses could exceed $5 million.

The agency didn’t know exactly how much because no one was keeping track of costs.

And that’s the real problem: government doesn’t operate like a normal business.
