IRS under fire: Vote for Obama stickers, campaign cheerleading commonplace
Even as the IRS faces growing heat over Lois G. Lerner and the tea party targeting scandal, a government watchdog said Wednesday its pursuing cases against three other tax agency employees and offices suspected of illegal political activity in support of President Obama and fellow Democrats.
In one case the Office of Special Counsel, which investigates federal employees who conduct politics on government time, said it was commonplace in a Dallas IRS office for employees to have pro-Obama screensavers on their computers, and to have campaign-style buttons and stickers at their office.
In another case, a worker at the tax agencys customer help line urged taxpayers to re-elect President Obama in 2012 by repeatedly reciting a chant based on the spelling of his last name, the Office of Special Counsel said in a statement.
OSC said it is seeking significant disciplinary action against that employee.
Another IRS employee in Kentucky has agreed to serve a 14-day suspension for blasting Republicans in a conversation with a taxpayer
Theyre going to take women back 40 years, the IRS employee said in a conversation that was recorded. The employee also said that if you vote for a Republican, the rich are going to get richer and the poor are going to get poorer.
That employee went on to tell the taxpayer she knew she wasnt supposed to be voicing her political opinions, and asked the taxpayer not to say anything.
The federal Hatch Act prohibits most government employees from conducting politics on government time. OSC is charged with looking into those violations.
The accusations come as the IRS is still facing tough questions from House Republicans over its targeting of conservative groups seeking nonprofit status.
On Wednesday, the House Ways and Means Committee went into executive session to discuss passing a resolution officially referring Ms. Lerner, who headed the tax-exempt division of the IRS during the targeting, to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution

This is an important story and I am glad you posted it. I've had similar experiences in the past few years with IRS employees. They don't get far, but I have great accountants and lawyers to back me up and I'm tough.
Back in the 'old days', 15 years ago, an IRS worker would not go near any political discussion. I did have one I met that was a Christian and shared spiritually when it was only he and I in the office. Pity, he'd be fired for that today.
The country better wake up.

Isn't this a joke people? It will not be 3 hours this old no longer christian, will be chasing after a man. Then cursing like a sailor. You are no good. Maybe, just maybe 15 years ago you were. My guess once a slut, always a slut. that is you SL (seriously LARGE)
When will Obama Target you? Oh! I forgot, you aren't very important are you? LQQKS like you are living on Topix these days. No one pays the slighest bit of attention to you. No one, I mean no one.
Who are you chasing after now, you old goat?
It is time you leave Topix while you are ahead. You are awful, what a liar.
Or do you prefer other namesI have called you? You are plumb laughable, did you know that, plain and simple.
What an awful subject. No wonder you jumped on this one.
