Huge Majority Believe IRS Destroyed Emails to Cover Up Obama Scandal

Not that the media is paying attention since they’re busy misinterpreting a Supreme Court decision, but one would think this merits at least some attention.

Most voters think it’s likely the IRS deliberately destroyed e-mails about its investigations of Tea Party and other conservative groups to hide its criminal behavior. Two-out-of-three now believe IRS employees involved in these investigations should be jailed or fired, and most suspect the agency of targeting other political opponents of the Obama administration.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 53% of Likely U.S. Voters believe that the Internal Revenue Service broke the law when it targeted Tea Party and other conservative groups.  That’s up from 49% earlier this year and back to the level seen last September. Little changed from the early surveys are the 22% who think the IRS did not break the law. Slightly more (25%) are not sure.

Left out of the story is the name of the chief architect of the IRS scandal. You might know this guy:

Barack Obama

    In order for the IRS and Fast and Furious scandals to occur it was necessary for the policies of both the IRS and the ATF to be changed. Only the President of the United States can alter the policy of a federal agency. Obviously Obama was directly involved in both scandals – neither could have occurred without him.

    The only people who believe the IRS’s story seem to be the mainstream media. The same media that would be going nuts if this happened under a Republican administration.

    MSM = Pravda.
