IRS Crimes Against the Republic are Just a Laughing Matter to Democrats

...During her appearance before the House Oversight Committee a week ago, Democratic Rep. Gerry Connolly (Va.) tried to dismiss the investigation by treating the whole thing as a joke, asking Sarah Hall Ingram [who formerly headed the IRS division that targeted conservative groups for mistreatment] if she had “been consorting with the Devil.” When Ingram answered no, Connolly went on to ask about reports she could fly. “Greatly exaggerated, sir,” she replied.

Getting the idea that Democrats in Congress, the White House and the IRS aren’t taking this investigation seriously?

Last week’s appearance by Ingram came five months after Republicans asked her to appear. And this is the woman who has moved from the IRS division targeting conservatives to the IRS office that will target people who run afoul of the tax rules regarding ObamaCare.

Looks like the joke is on us.
