Sorry to see the Dalai Lama like that, VernonFL.

Big hitter, the Lama.

Majick Thise: I didn't know witches even filed taxes


She's not a witch, she's you.

In which case, the government was actually illegally accessing YOUR tax records. Are you outraged yet?

My outrage knows no bounds! I realize I have moobs but I am a penis-equipped non spell-casting individual. How dare you claim I am a wit... oh. You meant about the gov't... and tax records.. yeah

meh.

Eh, I'll wait till this hits a real news site before getting outraged.

Delaware has taxes? On what? Witchcraft supplies?

Police dash cams, evidence bags, access records... real fragile stuff

/but it is the Washington Times so even Christine O'Donnell being real is up to debate.

Specifically, Mr. Grassley's staff was told that a Delaware state investigator asked for and received permission from his boss on a Saturday to access Ms. O'Donnell's tax records based on a local newspaper article about a civil lien. The lien, it turned, out was issued erroneously.


Isn't that their job?  I mean, to investigate things?

That was my thought, too. It sounds like the state did exactly what it was supposed to do, which, of course, is a scandal or something to Republicans.

I think she must have put "Tea Party" on the tax form and that got the extra attention

Yeah, I doubt anyone was scared enough about the witches chance of winning the election to bother to raid her tax records.  Or do much of anything, really.

I'm not entirely sure, but I believe you wanted to use whom in place of who.  The rule of thumb I use is that if you replace who/whom with he/she/they and it makes sense then you go with who.  If it does not make sense then go with whom.  In this case:

The records of he illegally accessed the tax records of a Republican Senatorial candidate were accidentally destroyed

I'll give you a break though.  The Washington Times regularly does worse.

It goes against the narrative of government never works if there are examples of government working.

The tea party is a ruse to monopolize 90% of the infotainment airwaves and distract us from the really bad guys running for office.

based on relevant and compelling information, yes.  Going on a witch hunt, no.

So, according to TFA, they know who accessed the records, and when, and why, and that it was done legally in response to a report (however erroneous) that she had a federal tax lien.  And the records weren't accidentally destroyed, they're routinely deleted after three months.

The complaint seems to be that, since access records aren't kept forever, they can't prove that other unauthorized access wasn't made.  Everyone in the state of Delaware should be equally paranoid, I suppose.

Why would a state be investigating a federal lein? No, it is not their job.

I can't speak for Delaware, but where I live the state taxes are based almost entirely on what appears on the federal forms.

Yet you file seperate state forms. Leins have almost nothing to do with reportable income to the state.

Yeah, i noticed that when it even hints that a republican might have been the one that illegally targeted others, the investigation dies. And when wack-jobs start talking about it, i point it out. With actual articles from their choice of media. They hate that.
