IRS Official to Congress: I Don’t Think Wasteful IRS Conference Itself Was Wrong

The GOP needs to drag this twits before the cameras every day possible between now and the 2014 midterms. Assuming they remain painfully stupid the Democrats will keep defending this lunacy.

A congressman asked, “So when did you think that something was wrong here? Did you ever think something was wrong here?”

The IRS official starts, “As far as the –”

“What do you think is wrong about this picture?” the congressman asked.

“I think now that in reospect, in looking back, that you take a look at the expenses, we should have been more diligent in our responsibility to the American taxpayer and to the American public.”

Later the congressman asks again, “When did it strike you that this was wrong?”

“As I said –” the IRS official begins.

“When you got called to testify before Congress?”

Ouch. You know what’s even more pathetic? They can’t produce receipts for this lavish spending. Try telling them you can’t find receipts for something next time they come calling.

    I’m glad the IRS rep got hassled at the hearing over the wasteful spending. Something about having control over other people’s money makes it seem like it’s “free money” and the weak, easily corrupted people drawn to the IRS do the wrong thing. They’re not the only ones that do it, but they deserve to be held accountable. Good, good point about what happens to the little guy when he can’t find a receipt.
