IRS HEAD IS ACTUALLY AN ASS!!!

The acting commissioner of the IRS says the agency was guilty of a "lack of sensitivity" in screenings of political groups seeking tax-exempt status.

Steven Miller said in an opinion piece in Tuesday's USA Today that there was _ in his words _ "a shortcut taken in our processes" for determining which groups needed special screening. He said the agency demonstrated "a lack of sensitivity to the implications of some of the decisions that were made."

NO, YOU MORON. IT WAS A CRIME!!!

26 USC § 6103 SAYS.......



Returns and return information shall be confidential, and except as authorized by this title—
(1) no officer or employee of the United States,
(2) no officer or employee of any State, any local law enforcement agency receiving information under subsection (i)(7)(A), any local child support enforcement agency, or any local agency administering a program listed in subsection (l)(7)(D) who has or had access to returns or return information under this section or section 6104 (c), and
(3) no other person (or officer or employee thereof) who has or had access to returns or return information under subsection (e)(1)(D)(iii),subsection (k)(10), paragraph (6), (10), (12), (16), (19), (20), or (21) of subsection (l), paragraph (2) or (4)(B) of subsection (m), orsubsection (n),
shall disclose any return or return information obtained by him in any manner in connection with his service as such an officer or an employee or otherwise or under the provisions of this section. For purposes of this subsection, the term “officer or employee” includes a former officer or employee.
It Violates 26 USC Sec. 7213   
Inspection or disclosure by employee of United States
If any officer or employee of the United States knowingly, or by reason of negligence, inspects or discloses any return or return information with respect to a taxpayer in violation of any provision of section 6103, such taxpayer may bring a civil action for damages against the United States in a district court of the United States.
