“Hard drive crashes continue as we speak,” Internal Revenue Service (IRS) commissioner John Koskinen admitted at a House Oversight and Government Reform subcommittee hearing when asked if any computers had recently crashed under his watch.
The IRS has to worst hard drives made by man, and probably cost 10 times more than yours or mine too. 🙂 Either that or they have a ideological ass saving deletion program. 🙂
Koskinen admitted that destroying records would be an act “not consistent with the law,” but maintained that there’s no evidence that the IRS intentionally destroyed records. (DC)
And if you believe that….
Koskinen didn’t mention that the IRS terminated its years-long contract with its email archiving company Sonasoft shortly after Lerner’s computer crashed.
“It is not clear that there are backup tapes that have any information on them,” Koskinen said. “I never said they disappeared, I said they were recycled.”
Then you’re a Liberal who’ll believe anything the Ministry of Truth and their minions tell you. Hope you like a Moon made of cheese.
Koskinen also admitted that IRS employees routinely use personal email accounts to conduct agency business but maintained that “they do it inadvertently.”
Inadvertently routine. Orwell is proud of you my son. That’s Baffling them with BS. And the only people who’d buy it are the ideologically inclined or the stupid.
Last week, Republican senators sent a letter to Archivist of the United States David Ferriero after receiving reports that an Environmental Protection Agency official’s hard drive had crashed just as congressional investigators began looking into questions about the EPA’s review of an Alaska mining project.
Investigators sought computer records of a former EPA official, Phillip North, who later fled the country. More than a year after his retirement, senators said, EPA officials belatedly told the National Archives and Records Administration that they failed to preserve Mr. North’s computer records.
“First the IRS, and now the EPA — these hard-drive crashes seem to be a growing epidemic throughout the administration,” Sen. David Vitter, Louisiana Republican, said in a statement. “This ‘dog ate my homework’ excuse is getting ridiculous.”
But like all Liberals, they are innocent until you’re proven guilty of partisan bias, right? 🙂
