IRS Employee: “If you vote for a Republican, the rich are going to get richer and the poor are going to get poorer”

Time to blow up the IRS, and by blow up we mean completely dismantle this clearly partisan thug outfit.

Even as the IRS faces growing heat over Lois G. Lerner and the tea party targeting scandal, a government watchdog said Wednesday it’s pursuing cases against three other tax agency employees and offices suspected of illegal political activity in support of President Obama and fellow Democrats.

In one case the Office of Special Counsel, which investigates federal employees who conduct politics on government time, said it was “commonplace” in a Dallas IRS office for employees to have pro-Obama screensavers on their computers, and to have campaign-style buttons and stickers at their office.

In another case, a worker at the tax agency’s customer help line urged taxpayers “to re-elect President Obama in 2012 by repeatedly reciting a chant based on the spelling of his last name,” the Office of Special Counsel said in a statement.

No, not a cult. Not at all.

OSC said it is seeking “significant disciplinary action” against that employee.

Another IRS employee in Kentucky has agreed to serve a 14-day suspension for blasting Republicans in a conversation with a taxpayer.

“They’re going to take women back 40 years,” the IRS employee said in a conversation that was recorded. The employee also said that “if you vote for a Republican, the rich are going to get richer and the poor are going to get poorer.”

That employee went on to tell the taxpayer she knew she wasn’t supposed to be voicing her political opinions, and asked the taxpayer not to say anything.

The federal Hatch Act prohibits most government employees from conducting politics on government time. OSC is charged with looking into those violations.

But in Obama’s America, anything goes, there are no rules that cannot be broken and nobody is held accountable.

    We do not need no stinking Hatch Act.

    The rule of law and decorum of public officials are impediments to the greater good of Obama.

    The only good Republican is one being audited and fleeced for the collective.

    Lois Lerner and her clones.You are correct: “Time to blow up the IRS…”

    So a democrat was elected six years ago and he sees that the rich get richer, and that the poor get poorer. So what’s her point? That the IRS wants a Democrat so the rich get richer so they pay more taxes?
