Patterico unearthed something that, to my knowledge, had not been reported previously: a November 2011 Business Week article about the business operations of non-profit universities that concludes with this:

Lois Lerner, the IRS’s director of tax-exempt organizations who is overseeing the investigation, says many schools are rethinking how and what they report to the government. <Begin Bold>Receiving a thick questionnaire from the IRS, she says, is a “behavior changer.” <End Bold>

This particular investigation is far afield from the Tea Party scandal; in fact, it is one with which I have considerable sympathy. But the salient point is the bullying attitude: never mind the merits, a “thick questionnaire from the IRS is a behavior changer.” And that was in a magazine interview! It makes one wonder what else Lerner may have said in unguarded moments.



So much for her claim to have done nothing wrong. It looks like conspiracy to deny Americans their Civil Rights under Color of Law to me.
