It is no wonder that Lois Lerner pleaded the fifth when testifying.  She probably would have been censored.

From the Obama administration that doesn’t have “even a smidgeon of corruption.”

Congressman Dave Camp (R-MI), chair of the House Means and Ways Committee that has been investigating Lerner, sent a letter to  Attorney General Eric Holder.  Along with the letter he provided additional evidence of the vitriol that Lois Lerner had for conservatives in her role at the IRS in the form of an email exchange that was made available to the committee.

In the letter he revealed:

Lerner had a bias against conservatives:

A newly discovered email exchange from Ms. Lerner’s official IRS email account, dated November 9, 2012, directly demonstrates Ms. Lerner’s deep animus towards conservatives, which she refers to as “—holes.”   Lerner further illustrates her disgust with conservatives, even suggesting they will ruin the country.  In heremail, Lerner states: “So we don’t need to worry about alien teRrorists. (sic) It’s our own crazies that will take us down.”  This email shows that Ms. Lerner’s mistreatment of conservative groups was driven by her personal hostility toward conservatives.

Lerner used her personal email for official business, including taxpayer information:

The Committee also found that Lerner used her personal email for official business, including confidential return information.  The Committee believed that further investigation, using resources available to the Department of Justice, could reveal whether there was unauthorized disclosure of taxpayer information in violation of the law.  A newly discovered email from February 22, 2012 shows an exchange between Ms. Lerner and an IRS IT professional regarding a “Virus on Home PC.”  In the exchange, Ms. Lerner indicates that she kept work information on her home computer, some of which may have been lost.  She further states that her computer may have been “simply hacked because my password was too simple.”  This exchange further raises concerns that taxpayer information may have been leaked.

Here is a sample below.
