IRS says it lost key Lerner emails to a 2011 hard drive crash (UPDATE)

Hard drive crash, my @$$! How convenient. And the dog ate my homework...
WashingtonTimes: The IRS has told Congress that it has lost some of former employee Lois G. Lerner’s emails from 2009 through 2011, including those she sent to other federal agencies, the House’s top tax-law writer said Friday.

The agency blamed a computer crash for the mishap.

Rep. Dave Camp, chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, said he was stunned that it took more than a year into the investigation for the IRS to inform Congress that it didn’t have those emails.

“The fact that I am just learning about this, over a year into the investigation, is completely unacceptable and now calls into question the credibility of the IRS’s response to congressional inquiries,” Mr. Camp said. “There needs to be an immediate investigation and forensic audit by Department of Justice as well as the Inspector General.”
Who, Holder? Yeah, good luck with that, Dave.

Yes, this is a setback; however, 24,000 Lerner emails have still been collected that weren't DELETED, so...KEEP DIGGING!

ADDENDUM: Here's Levin on more of Friday's obvious coverup...

UPDATE: The IRS isn't losing emails in any hard drive crash...they are DESTROYING evidence!
TRS: This is the most lawless IRS I have ever seen.

It’s not just Lois Lerner’s email. I guess they figured that might look too suspicious if they only lost hers. Now they are claiming 6 more have lost their emails or something.

This scandal is absolutely pathetic. Not only are they stonewalling, it sounds like they are destroying evidence. And yet the MSM continues to largely ignore the most scandal-ridden president in my lifetime.
