The IRS SCandal - Day 480

Lest we forget, there's an IRS scandal still on the investigator's books, and suits abound. If you want to kep up with the latest on the ongoing revelations, go to Professor Paul Caron's TaxProfBlg.  Professor Caron, of Pepperdine University has been doing yeoman service keeping us updated on the latest in the scandal, and today's updates are really interesting.

Those of us who have smartphones know that our email appears on the phone, and Lois Lerner was no different.  She had a Blackberry, and there are new revelations that the Blackberry held all her emails.  It, of course was destroyed when she learned that she would have to appear before investigators.  From the High Plans Daily, Leader & Times.
An IRS official declared under oath, that the destroyed Blackberry contained the same subpoenaed emails (both sent and received) as Lois Lerner’s computer hard-drive. Judge Sullivan had decided the best way to arrive at the truth with the suspected IRS conspirators was to have them give sworn-testimony so any false statement would lead to criminal charges of perjury or obstruction of justice.
If these revelations are true, then Lerner and company are guilty of Spoilation of Evidence, a crime in many cases.  Which might explain why Lerner took the fifth.  She's guilty as sin, and she knows it.
