    The IRS Destroyed Lois Lerner’s Blackberry, Too
    http://pjmedia.com/tatler/2014/08/26...lackberry-too/

    After Monday’s bombshell about the federal government’s system-wide email back-up system broke, there was yet another bombshell.

    The IRS “recycled” — destroyed — Lois Lerner’s hard drive in June 2011, just 10 days after Rep. Dave Camp had sent a letter to the IRS inquiring about the targeting of conservative groups that Lerner knew about and may have orchestrated.

    The IRS destroyed Lerner’s Blackberry device, too. Even though there is no suggestion that it ever “crashed,” as the agency claims about her hard drive.

    Even worse, the IRS destroyed Lerner’s Blackberry after it knew of the crash, and while the congressional investigation was underway.

    The Blackberry would have contained all of Lerner’s emails.

    The New York Observer picks up the story:

    In two elusive and nebulous sworn declarations, we can glean that Ms. Lerner had two Blackberries. One was issued to her on November 12, 2009. According to a sworn declaration, this is the Blackberry that contained all the emails (both sent and received) that would have been in her “Outlook” and drafts that never were sent from her Blackberry during the relevant time.

    With incredible disregard for the law and the Congressional inquiry, the IRS admits that this Blackberry “was removed or wiped clean of any sensitive or proprietary information and removed as scrap for disposal in June 2012.” This is a year after her hard drive “crash” and months after the Congressional inquiry began.

    The IRS did not even attempt to retrieve that data. It cavalierly recites: “There is no record of any attempt by any IRS IT employee to recover data from any Blackberry device assigned to Lois Lerner in response to the Congressional investigations or this investigation,” according to Stephen Manning, Deputy Chief Information Officer for Strategy & Modernization.

    Lerner was issued another Blackberry for Valentine’s Day 2012—also after she came under fire for her targeting of conservative groups....

    I heard that Lerner's assistant should have all of Lerner's e-mails on her system.

    Did that crash too?
    Obama isn't the problem. The problem is an electorate that would vote a man like him into office.

    I still don't get why they would need Lerner's computer or blackberry to access her emails.

    I can log into where my emails are stored and retrieve them from any computer.

    What's amazing is that the IRS never loses the information about what I owe them.
