If you were being auditing for a suspected long history of undeclared income, I’ll bet the IRS could find specific emails from a long gone CompuServe account you had in 1991. But emails from one of their own employees a few years ago? Whoops!

Today, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) issued the following statement regarding the Internal Revenue Service informing the Committee that they have lost Lois Lerner emails from a period of January 2009 – April 2011. Due to a supposed computer crash, the agency only has Lerner emails to and from other IRS employees during this time frame. The IRS claims it cannot produce emails written only to or from Lerner and outside agencies or groups, such as the White House, Treasury, Department of Justice, FEC, or Democrat offices.
[…]
Oversight Subcommittee Chairman Charles Boustany Jr., M.D. (R-LA) added, “In the course of the Committee’s investigation, the Administration repeatedly claimed we were getting access to all relevant IRS documents. Only now – thirteen months into the investigation – the IRS reveals that key emails from the time of the targeting have been lost. And they bury that fact deep in an unrelated letter on a Friday afternoon. In that same letter, they urge Congress to end the investigations into IRS wrongdoing.”

That was part of a press release from Rep. Dave Camp on the House Ways and Means Committee.

I’m guessing that the computer and hard drive Lerner had been using has been “accidentally” dropped into the Mariana Trench by now, so as far as getting those emails, Camp should check with the NSA. If that’s a dead-end try Snowden.
