For John, BLUF: Shouldn't George be outraged by this. Nothing to see here; just move along.
As Pepperdine University School of Law Tax Law Professor Paul Caron reminds us, It is Day 832 of the IRS Scandal. And Ms Lois Lerner is still walking around. She did retire from the IRS almost two years ago. The thing is, Wikipedia claims she is a member of the Massachusetts bar. I hope that isn't true, and if true, that someone will challenge her membership.
But, with this item from Ars Technica (Reporter Sean Gallagher), we have two scandals running. Should they run in parallel or should the days be additive? Anyway, here is the headline: "IRS’ estimate of tax records stolen by fraudsters soars to over 300,000". The sub-headline is "Using data from previous corporate breaches, fraudsters frolicked in IRS transcript data."
