On Wednesday, House hearings on the Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) political targeting of conservative groups uncovered a startling revelation about the interview process used to construct the Inspector General’s report: Obama donor-turned-IRS director of tax exempt organizations Holly Paz sat in on 36 of 41 interviews with IRS employees.
“Why was Holly Paz... in almost all of the interviews you conducted?” asked Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC).
“Why would you have someone from the IRS in those meetings? Is that proper protocol?”
“I am unaware of it,” said Inspector General J. Russell George. “This is the first I’ve heard this.”
“Yes I believe... I can’t remember if I made the request or Lois Lerner made the request,” said Paz. “But we discussed that in order for the IRS to be able respond to the report we had to understand what information TIGTA [Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration] had and what they were being told.”

With all the things going on that concern the current adminitstation and the POTUS, I find it hard to believe and disgusting that this isn't the only thing on all American's minds (aside from the real problems faced by those effected by the natural disasters). It should be the only thing being discussed on TV news and media outlets across the country.
I find it sickening that no one seems to be irate, with incredible disappointment, at the way we've all been violated in nearly every way a government can. I also find it hard to understand why we are content to let it play out, as if it will fix itself or just 'go away'.
I imagine there was a time, back in the '50s or so, when only a couple of the scandals we see today would have the citizens up in arms, not resting until the administration is dealt with and the POTUS is forcefully relieved of his position.
Maybe the people today, who feel the way they did back then, are too scared, complacent, or uneducated to stand up for each other when it really counts, if only for a better future!
