Lois Lerner Used FEC to Run Interference For DICK Durbin

Gateway Pundit:

Lois Lerner made this offer to Republican Senate candidate Al Salvi in 1996,
“Promise me you will never run for office again, and we’ll drop this case.”
USofArn reported:
In 1996 Lois Lerner, the IRS official at the center of the harassment of Tea Party groups seeking tax exempt status, was head of the enforcement division of the Federal Elections Commission(FEC). That year Al Salvi was the Republican nominee for the US Senate from Illinois, his Democrat opponent was then congressman Dick Durbin.

During the final weeks of the campaign Salvi loaned himself over a million dollars to buy ads in the Chicago media market. This in turn prompted the Democrat party’s campaign arms to file complaints with the FEC and in kind the FEC, specifically Lois Lerner, filed charges against Al Salvi.

That is when Mr. Salvi contends Lois Lerner made him the following offer, “Promise me you will never run for office again, and we’ll drop this case.”

Al Salvi refused that offer and would fight the FEC complaint against him for several more years before a Judge tossed out the complaint.

2 While Obama, Holder, Lerner and their crews spend 24 hrs a day lawyering up to defend themselves Russia has delivered a high tech missile system to Syria. Israel previously requested that the Russians not deliver the system and they wouldn't allow it to be deployed. Syria says it needs the system because of two bombing attacks by Israel within its borders in the last few months. Russia says it will stand by its friend. This missile system can also used to destroy commercial aircraft far away. I don't think Obama even contacted the Russians about it.
I guess the ball is in Israel's court to back up their threats. The problem is that the missile system isn't being manned by Syrian jerkoffs. It's presently manned by Russian troops while they "train Syrians" which may take 57 yrs. This is a serious system. Not a Hezbollah convoy.
Which side is Obama on? I forget. Oh yea. The rebels. Okay Obama send the rebels a high tech missile system. That way when Syria solves their internal problems they'll have the best of two missile systems.
I doubt if the Russians give a shit about Syria or Israel. We did it to them in Afghanistan so they're sticking it back to us.
Obama should have kept his mouth shut and Biden should be gagged.

3 If Lois Lerner was si bad why was she appointed to run the tax Exempt Division of teh IRS by Bush? Certainly she was well vetted for taht plum job.

4 John Ryan aka Occam, that's pretty irrelevant who appointed her, and also if you red the article people state that workign for the IRS under bush was akin to being in Siberia they were so not connected to white house.

So I can't speak to why Bush would appoint her. So if Obama's repubican appointee to head FBI later misbehaves would it be OK for us to set up a straw man, But Obama appointed him! To excuse crimes, felonies?

I think not.
