IRS claims they lost Lois Lerner’s emails (you know, the good ones)

I’m gonna just go ahead and say this is nothing but a bunch of HOOEY:

WASHINGTON TIMES – The IRS told Congress on Friday that it has lost some of former employee Lois G. Lerner’s emails, including some covering communications with Democrats in Congress and with other parts of the government, according to the House’s top tax-law writer.

Rep. Dave Camp, chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, said he was stunned that it took more than a year into the investigation for the IRS to inform Congress that it didn’t have those emails.

The agency blamed a computer crash for the mishap.

“The fact that I am just learning about this, over a year into the investigation, is completely unacceptable and now calls into question the credibility of the IRS’s response to congressional inquiries,” Mr. Camp said. “There needs to be an immediate investigation and forensic audit by Department of Justice as well as the Inspector General.”

The IRS is obviously steeped in corruption. If this isn’t an argument to abolish the IRS, I don’t know what is.
