In an excellent piece of journalism, Fox 19 news of Cincinnati, Ohio, has uncovered the names and connection of six IRS employees involved in the IRS scandal who corresponded with entities and individuals that stand in opposition to Barack Obama’s Progressive ideology and countless acts of treason.

The names of the six civil servants who it is alleged to have betrayed the trust of the American people are Mitchell Steele, Carly Young, Joseph Herr, Stephen Seok, Liz Hofacre and a female worker identified as Ms. Richards.

Seok is an IRS supervisor agent while the others are IRS agents.

The agents each have a different manager and above that manager, there exists a different territory manager for each agent.  However, there is one supervisor that they all have in common and her name is Cindy Thomas, the Program Manager of the Tax Exempt Division.

Note the chain of command above Thomas in the following screenshot.

…Here is how that works.

When an application for tax exempt status comes into the IRS, agents have 270 days to work through that application.  If the application is not processed within those 270 days it automatically triggers flags in the system.  When that happens, individual agents are required to input a status update on that individual case once a month, every month until the case is resolved.

Keep in mind, at least 300 groups were targeted out of Cincinnati alone.  Those applications spent anywhere from 18 months to nearly 3 years in the system and some still don’t have their non-profit status.  300 groups multiplied by at least 18 months for each group, means thousands of red flags would have been generated in the system.

So who in the chain of command would have received all these flags?  The answer, according to the IRS directory,  one woman in Cincinnati, Cindy Thomas, the Program Manager of the Tax Exempt Division.  Because all six of our IRS workers have different individual and territory managers, Cindy Thomas is one manager they all have common.

It turns out Cindy Thomas’ name is one we have heard before…


Amazing isn’t it that the more the Obama administration lies to the citizens, the more their lies unravel.

This is not an operation run by one or two rogue operatives.  This is big and it goes directly to the top.  John Boehner is right.  Who is going to jail?

John Boehner is right.  Who is going to jail?

You know it’s bad when Democrats are this displeased putting them at the same level of displeasure as Republicans while boldly expressing that discontentment so loudly and so often.

The IRS Scandal Is a Test: Is It Too Hard to Fire Misbehaving Bureaucrats?

Under the headline, ‘Yes, heads should roll at the IRS,’ Ezra Klein points out that, at the very least, ‘A number of IRS employees developed criteria that was politically biased both in appearance and in effect. They were reined in once by their superiors, and then they changed the criteria again, and had to be reined in a second time. Their actions called the fairness of the agency into question and kicked off a national scandal. Even if their intent was pure, they showed bad judgment, more than a bit of incompetence, and perhaps even a touch of insubordination.’

That’s reason enough to fire them, he concludes, ‘even if the process is difficult.’ He is absolutely right. But….


Whenever such a question arises about the nation’s civil servants on local, state and federal levels, the next thing we hear is that they are under a union contract.

Well, I am tired of hearing this excuse.  There must be accountability.  If those who are hired to serve the people of the United States perform their jobs less than satisfactorily, if they betray those whom pay their salaries, if they break the law and if they are insubordinate, all of the above should immediately render their contract moot.

Finally, about Lois Lerner, that wench waived her right to invoke the Fifth Amendment the second that she indignantly and defiantly tooted her own horn.

 Typical of Progressives hypocrites to assert their Constitutional rights on their own behalf while denying others their liberties.
