The administration has appointed an investigator to look in to the IRS practice of targeting the political opposition. Guess what? The "investigator" is a long time party hack and generous donor. What do you bet that no report will be issued before January 2017?
In the meantime this means that no questions may be asked by the public as answering them may interfere with the "ongoing investigation". The investigator becomes the rug under which the scandal is swept. How handy.
Meantime it appears the president worked directly with senior IRS legal counsel to write the proposed guidelines for approving tax-exempt status for opposition groups which codifies the exact behavior that brought about the scandal in the first place.
Remember: The next recall election is this November. If you don't like your Senator, you don't have to keep him.
