IRS Scandal Still Rages On

by T Akery July 22nd, 2014 Republican Reflections
The IRS scandal is not going away anytime soon. Now, the courts are involved in the scandal. A lawsuit has been allowed to move forward by one judge. Another judge is demanding answers in a related suit. Both of this is forcing the IRS to go under oath to address how and why the IRS destroyed such vital evidence in such an egregious caseRepublican-Reflections of what amounts to a political witch hunt.
