Eric Holder’s Justice Department is ensuring their choice to lead the IRS probe won’t have any unfair pro-Tea Party bias:

The Justice Department selected an avowed political supporter of President Obama to lead the criminal probe into the IRS targeting of tea party groups, according to top Republicans who said Wednesday that the move has ruined the entire investigation.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell E. Issa, California Republican, and regulatory affairs subcommittee Chairman Jim Jordan, Ohio Republican, said they have discovered that the head of the investigation is Barbara Kay Bosserman, a trial lawyer in the Justice Department who donated more than $6,000 to Mr. Obama’s 2008 and 2012 campaigns, as well as several hundred dollars to the national Democratic Party.

I can feel the impartiality from here (Lois Lerner must not have been available).

Leader of the investigation aside, can a member of the White House Press Corps please ask Jay Carney his opinion of the Justice Department wasting resources investigating what Carney (and Obama) have referred to as a “phony scandal”?
