Why is Lois G. Lerner still on the taxpayer's payroll? Lerner is the director of exempt organizations whose failures are at the heart of the furor over indefensible criteria for selecting 501(c)(4) applicants for scrutiny. The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration's report makes her bungling clear.
So why is Lois Lerner still working for the IRS?
Only a person lacking a sense of honor and integrity would cling to their job in the face of the horrendous damage caused to the agency they work for, to her superiors and to the welfare of the Republic if her mistakes prompt even more IRS budget cuts....
Ms. Lerner, have you no decency? At long last, have you no shame?
