Did you ever wonder why the FEC (Federal Election Commission) never took any action on all the charges about Obama's eligibility and foreign campaign donations? Longtime Atlas readers remember the blockbuster stories I broke during the early summer 2008 on illegal contributions, foreign contributions, contributions from Hamas-controlled areas in Gaza, and non-existent donors (scroll here). I documented it all in my book, The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Adminstration's War on America. Good article on it here: Obama's Foreign Donors: The media averts its eyes
Lois Lerner, IRS official and director of IRS's Exempt Organizations Division is at the center of the IRS scandal. Lerner was formerly head of the Enforcement Office at the Federal Election Commission (FEC) where there are reports of her politically motivated harassment of conservative groups, according to a May 20 report on "The Weekly Standard."
Lerner brought her skulduggery and utter disregard for the law to her new job with the IRS. Another Obama socialist and lawbreaker on the warpath using the full authority and power of the US government to terrorize and bully American citizens. Has any other person so singlehandedly influenced not just one, but two elections? Obama always rewards his lieutenants. Think Jarrett, Axlerod, Emanuel, Holder, ad nauseum.
The government has been infiltrated by these Socialist Progressives and America haters who stuff themselves at the public trough while avoiding any accountability in their subversion of the law. The Obama years will be remembered most for their imperious lawlessness.

Perhaps no other IRS official is more intimately associated with the tax agency's growing scandal than Lois Lerner, director of the IRS’s Exempt Organizations Division. Since admitting the IRS harassed hundreds of conservative and Tea Party groups for over two years, Lerner has been criticized for a number of untruths—including the revelation that she apparently lied about planting a question at an American Bar Association conference where she first publicly acknowledged IRS misconduct.
Still, Lerner has her defenders in the government and the media. Shortly after the scandal broke, The Daily Beast published an article headlined "IRS Scandal’s Central Figure, Lois Lerner, Described as ‘Apolitical.’" Insisting Lerner, and the IRS more broadly, were not not politically motivated has been a central contention of those trying to minimize the impact of the scandal.
The trouble with this defense is that, prior to joining the IRS, Lerner's tenure as head of the Enforcement Office at the Federal Election Commission (FEC) was marked by what appears to be politically motivated harassment of conservative groups.
