The phone message earlier this year shocked the battled-scarred candidate, a tea party favorite who knocked off Republican mainstay Michael Castle in the primary before losing in a bid to win Vice President Joseph R. Biden’s former seat.“Ms. O'Donnell, this is Dennis Martel, special agent with the U.S. Department of Treasury in Baltimore, Md. … We received information that your personal federal tax info may have been compromised and may have been misused by an individual,” he said in the January message left on her cellphone.For Ms. O'Donnell, the message immediately raised red flags.On March 9, 2010, the day she revealed her plan to run for the Senate in a press release, a tax lien was placed on a house purported to be hers and publicized. The problem was she no longer owned the house. The IRS eventually blamed the lien on a computer glitch and withdrew it.Now Mr. Martel, a criminal investigator for the Treasury Department’s inspector general for tax administration, was telling her that an official in Delaware state government had improperly accessed her records on that very same day.
Now here's where it becomes a criminal conspiracy:
But the Justice Department has declined to prosecute any of the offenders. Treasury officials have refused to give Mr. Grassley any specifics on the cases or to describe the disposition of Ms. O'Donnell’s case, claiming even people who improperly access tax records have an assumption of privacy under federal tax laws.
Christine O’Donnell was mercilessly mocked and her candidacy was pummeled by everyone on the Left and in the media (but I repeat myself) including the Ruling Class in the Republican Party. But she was apparently considered enough of a threat to have her tax records searched by political criminals.
So what’s a private citizen to do when their tax records are illegally searched and they are told about it, but nothing will be done?
“Hi, I’m from the IRS. We let somebody comb through your tax records looking for damaging information. Oh, no, we’re not going to tell you who it is. Have to protect their privacy. And we’re not going to do anything about it. Have a nice day.”
Team Obama is a corrupt Southern Sheriff in the Jim Crow South … in blackface.
