Law school still plans to honor scandal-plagued Obama IRS official Lois Lerner

Screw up, move up, repeat. Lois Lerner, the woman who confessed to inappropriately targeting limited-government groups and using the IRS to discriminate against Tea Party and 9/12 organizations, is still scheduled to receive honors from Western New England University School of Law this weekend.

The woman in charge of the IRS division responsible for reviewing tax-exempt status applications and who is at the heart of an ongoing scandal over revelations the agency targeted conservative groups is set to receive an honorary tribute from Western New England University School of Law on Saturday.

Lois Lerner – director for the IRS Exempt Organization Division – is slated to deliver the school’s commencement address and be given the university’s “President’s Medallion.”

Established in 2002, the award is “bestowed upon those who have distinguished themselves in a particular field or in service to an important cause that has benefited society locally, regionally, nationally, or internationally,” the college’s website states.

A tipster of mine e-mailed the school and received this response:

I contacted the school to make sure she is still set to give the commencement address, and this was the response that I received:

“…Thank you for your email. Lois Lerner was chosen several months ago to deliver the commencement address at the School of Law’s commencement. We reviewed the matter following her apology on Friday for the inappropriate actions of certain agents within the exempt organizations division of the IRS. Our plans for commencement have not changed.

Maybe they should read the IRS Inspector General’s report before Saturday. Sunlight is the best disinfectant.
