Now two democrats have decided that the best defense is a good offense. From The Washington Post:
Two House Democrats on Thursday called for an investigation of a federal auditor who accused the Internal Revenue Service of gross mismanagement and targeting advocacy groups for extra scrutiny based on their names and policy positions.
Reps. Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) and Matt Cartwright (D-Penn.) on Wednesday filed a complaint with a special watchdog council questioning the independence of Treasury Department inspector general J. Russell George.
The congressmen, both of whom serve as top Democrats on House oversight committees, said George produced a “fundamentally flawed performance audit” that was “incomplete” and “outright misleading.” They also alleged that he held briefings with Republican members of the House Oversight Committee without the knowledge of Democrats on the panel.
This sort of attack is right out of the Alinsky playbook. They are making one mistake, though. They should have gotten at least one a black Congressman to sign on. I’m sure Rep. Cummings would have participated with great enthusiasm. This sort of BS is the one type of black-on-black crime that he enjoys, and he’s already seriously ticked off at Rep. Darryl Issa.
