And so down the rabbit hole the tale of the IRS scandal goes. Where it stops?
"House investigators said Tuesday that the computer hard drive of ex-agency official Lois Lerner -- a key figure in the IRS targeting scandal -- was only “scratched,” not irreparably damaged, as Americans have been led to believe.
GOP-led Ways and Means Committee investigators, in their quest to recover missing Lerner emails, learned her hard drive was damaged but recoverable by talking to IRS information-technology experts, after the government originally refused to make them available, according to the committee.
“It is unbelievable that we cannot get a simple, straight answer from the IRS about this hard drive,” said committee Chairman Dave Camp."
That must be rough Dave. I know how you feel.
Here is a suggestion, perhaps Lerner should just say they were unmoored instead. The memos were somehow magically unmoored from the drive platters. Perhaps no one will notice that's a nautical term and everyone will instead just buy into it like a good little zombie.
