Lerner fears physical harm from enraged public, wants IRS testimony sealed permanently

Wow! The balls on that witch.

Wa Times: Former IRS executive Lois G. Lerner told a federal court last week that members of her family, including “young children,” face death threats and a real risk of physical harm if her explanation of the tea party targeting scandal becomes public.

Ms. Lerner and Holly Paz, her deputy at the IRS, filed documents in court Thursday saying tapes and transcripts of depositions they gave in a court case this year must remain sealed in perpetuity, or else they could spur an enraged public to retaliate.

“Whenever Mss. Lerner and Paz have been in the media spotlight, they have faced death threats and harassment,” attorneys for the two women argued.

 

Ms. Lerner and Ms. Paz gave taped depositions in a class-action lawsuit brought by tea party groups demanding answers and compensation for having been subjected to illegal targeting for their political beliefs.

The government settled the class-action lawsuit in Ohio and another tea party challenge in the District of Columbia in two agreements last month, admitting to the illegal behavior. The Ohio settlement also called for the government to pay $3.5 million to the tea party groups, according to one of the plaintiffs.

Ms. Lerner came in for particular criticism, with the government admitting she not only didn’t stop the targeting — contradicting the Obama administration’s claims — but also hid it from her superiors in Washington.  read more

  1. “You’ll get really mad if you hear what I really did!”

    The “reasoning” escapes me, but sounds like a fun amusement park ride.

  2. you thought you were a hero to your fellow lefties and you may be. But justice hasn’t caught up to you and I guess I’ll have to be happy knowing your living your life like the cornered rat you are.

  3. What bugs me is the taxpayer paid out the money but we are not ‘allowed’ to hear what this slug really did?
    Why isn’t she paying money or at least incarcerated?
    Taxpayer got screwed twice, not even a kiss.

  4. Having been audited twice during the Obama terms–this woman deserves everything coming her way. She has faced NO consequences for her criminal behavior and these records need to be released. It is obvious from her request that she did do something criminal. Why does she get special treatment? I wish I could convey my total disgust and anger better.

  5. I have had no protection from this piece of filth, so she should get no protection from me.
    We also really need to address the whole alleged “death threats and harassment” ruse.
    She threatened my freedom and my life by using the government to intimidate and silence me. And what about the stockpiles of ammunition?
    Why isn’t that a “death threat and harassment” against her political opponents?
    No cupcake, there is no safe space for you. Crawl out from under your rock and take it. You were certainly eager to dish it out.

  6. She worked for the people, who paid her salary AND paid restitution for her misdeeds. That public has EVERY right to know exactly what she did and to demand justice for her behavior.

  7. Hey, we the taxpayers paid 3.5 million dollars for that information which added on to the 17 million for harassment claims has us talking some big money here with no end in sight!

  8. Can’t think of anyone more deserving … except Koskinen and Gruber … and Obola … and Harry Reid … and Nancy Pelosi … and David Axelrod … and Eric Holder … and Mitch McConnell … and Paul Ryan … and George Soros … and Rahm Emanuel … and Clapper … and Clinton … &c

    izlamo delenda est …

  9. I have zero point shit sympathy for this arrogant bitch. She did the crime and should pay dearly for it. What continues to gaul my ass is she’s continuing to suck off the federal tit with retirement bennies and such after she cost the taxpayers at the very least 3.5 million.

  10. Another one caught red handed that isn’t capable of responsibility. Maybe trying to get DJT to own responsibility on a fake news story will divert the topic long enough for her to slip out the back door.

  11. Shit. We’re still on the hook for her six-figure pension and benefits. She should be able to change her name and go somewhere where with no extradition. Wit-sec is not her friend, and as people have noted upthread, none of us have ever had protection against the likes of her.

    Innocent people look to clear their names. She ain’t one of them.

  12. Another example of the two tiered justice system.
    The elites and their flunkies are exempt from the law that “normal” citizens will face to the letter, with no mercy.

    Equal justice under the law has become a cliche’ used by the DOJ, IRS and FBI.

  13. One of this witches neighbors should just kick the shit out of her. There’s not a jury around that would convict the neighbor. Just like Bathhouse, who also needs the shit kicked out him/her.. Fuck these filthy humans stealing our oxygen!

  14. She shouldn’t be free to fear the dreaded Deplorables then. This is why Trump needs to fire Sessions TODAY and install a chainsaw, Hell, multiple chainsaws and guillotines.

  15. And there are people in Hell who want ice water.

    There was a settlement made, with taxpayer’s dollars, based on her testimony. For a settlement to have been made, there would have been quilt proven.
    What did she do? What did she say?
    What did we buy with our payoff?
    Once again, the DOJ will do nothing, but maybe Judicial Watch will pursue this.

  16. If you don’t live out the rest of your days in prison I will accept you and your loved ones cowering in an underground bunker forever.

    Hey Lois, justice might be dodged on Earth, but Almighty God is Just and so your eternal punishment awaits…repent and confess your sins!

  17. Blinded.
    Hobbled.
    Thumbs cut off.
    Teeth pulled out (without benefit of anesthesia).
    Copper bell hung around neck which she must ring when approaching people (to warn them).

    A sign sewn into her skin describing her crimes and a warning that whosoever kills her must take her place (though she may be beaten).

    And then she has Hell to look forward to.

    “Abuse of Power; Under Color of Authority – Treason” Punishment should fit the crime.

    izlamo delenda est …

  18. These cases PROVE that AG Holder and Preznit B.Traitor Obola
    LIED and obstructed justice in order to shield their apparatchik, a clear enemy of the People, in her IRS assault on citizens.

    This and Ft Hood alone, ignoring the thousands of other smidgens of corruption, makes them worse enemies than osama bin laden.

  19. Government thespians, putting on a show with other government thespians, to be watched by other government thespians. Expect to find a granule of truth inside the kernel of corn.

    People who need to see other government thespians critique of their co-unionists work, before they can decide how to react, will never decide. They won’t even look for the corn.

    People who would respond appropriately don’t need to see the granule of truth inside the kernel of corn. Your pointing out the steam from the pile is proof enough. (Of course, in a nation of over a quarter-of-a-billion souls, if there were even one such person, we wouldn’t be able to enjoy this, particular matinée. The fresh steam was pointed out by the same thespian long ago. So, can we just call bullish, now?)
