Has Hagan Lost Any Emails?

The IRS Targeting And At Risk Dems

The targeting of Conservative and Tea Party groups by the IRS represents a weaponization of the department for the purpose of political persecution. The more documents that come out, the more sources pushing for said persecution grows.

High ranking Democrats, many vulnerable in the coming 2014 election cycle, have been named in a recent article by TownHall’s Katie Pavlich which details the stonewalling by the IRS in the ongoing investigation. North Carolina’s Kay Hagan made the list; emphasis added below.

On May 21, 2013 the National Republican Senatorial Committee sent the IRS a Freedom of Information Act request asking for “any and all documents or records, including but not limited to electronic documents, e-mails, paper documents, photographs (electronic or hard copy), or audio files,” related to correspondence from January 1, 2009 and May 21, 2013 between thirteen different Democrat members of Congress and top IRS officials. Those officials include former IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman, former Commissioner Steven Miller, senior IRS official Joseph Grant and former head of tax exempt groups Lois Lerner. Members of Congress named in the request include Sen. Schumer (D-NY), Sen. Reid (D-NV), DSCC Chair Sen. Bennet (D-CO), Sen. Landrieu (D-LA), Sen. Pryor (D-AR), Sen. Hagan (D-NC), Sen. Begich (D-AK), Sen. Shaheen (D-NH), Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO), Sen. Franken (D-MN), Sen. Warner (D-VA), Rep. Braley and Rep. Peters (D-MI). Continue reading
