The emails and the evidence does indicate the IRS targeted the TEA Party. The bombastic rhetoric of the Obama administration, media proxies and Civil rights groups fostered the atmosphere where this abuse of power took place.
Employees of the government swear an oath to uphold the laws of the United States and the Constitution, not Obama. The violation of the rights of the Tea Party is inexcusable and those responsible should be fired and up on criminal charges.
One is protected for actions within the scope of the job from civil liability. These abuses were not in line with the scope of the actual job. Lois Lerner should be held liable for her actions and sued personally.
It is not up to Lois Lerner and a mob of crazed workers to determine what views are acceptable. Americans
have a right to peacefully protest any administration and the job of the IRS is not to silence critics of the Obama administration. The violation of ethics and professionalism is inexcusable and those responsible need to be held accountable.
