‘Not a smidgen of corruption’ moment of paws: Lois Lerner used email under dog’s name for IRS business

It’s becoming a real pain keeping track of all the phony email names and self-wiping servers and devices used by this administration. Add Lois Lerner’s dog to the list of those using government email to conduct official business:

The IRS admitted to a federal court there was a second personal email account that Lois Lerner, the official at the heart of the Tea Party targeting scandal, used to conduct agency business.

The email account apparently was set up under the name, “Toby Miles,” which sources tell Fox News is the name of Lerner’s dog.

The admission, first reported by The Washington Times, was made Monday in an open-records lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch, a conservative group suing to see Lerner’s emails sent during the targeting of conservative groups filing for tax-exempt status.

IRS lawyer Geoffrey Klimas told the court that as it was putting together a set of documents to hand over to Judicial Watch, attorneys discovered another email account, in addition to her official account and a separate personal email already known to the agency.

“Not a smidgen of corruption”! Contrary to what Obama wanted everybody to think, it looks like those accusing Lerner of hiding something weren’t barking up the wrong tree after all:

“Toby Miles,” according to a former Lerner colleague, is the name of Lerner’s dog: Toby is the dog’s name, and Miles is the surname of Lerner’s husband, Michael Miles.

Anybody else see a Berkowitz-style “my dog made me do it” defense developing for Lerner? It might come to be known as the “Daughter of Toby” trial, except that Lerner may never be held accountable for anything. In this administration, who is?
