According to the House Ways and Means Committee, the IRS has "lost" two years of emails belonging to former head of tax exempt organizations Lois Lerner.
The IRS doesn't have a record of her emails to outside groups or government agencies from January 2009 through April 2011, conveniently encompassing some of the same time when tea party groups were being targeted for extra scrutiny and possible criminal prosecution.
The IRS says the loss of emails is due to a "computer crash" and claims emails from or to Lerner from the White House, Democratic members of Congress, the Treasury Department and Department of Justice cannot be located.
They do however have emails belonging to Lerner that she sent to other IRS employees.

Indeed, and these are the people that can read all my emails from 1967?

I wonder how many audits the IRS performs because "email got lost".
Looking forward to the defense on this.
Obviously the White House was involved. (Watergate?)
