Did you ever wonder why the FEC (Federal Election
Commission) never took any action on all the charges about Obama’s
eligibility and foreign campaign donations? Longtime Atlas readers remember the blockbuster stories I broke during the early summer 2008 on illegal contributions, foreign contributions, contributions from Hamas-controlled areas in Gaza, and non-existent donors (scroll Obama’s Foreign Donors: The media averts its eyes
Congressional testimony today, this little pearl went unnoticed (but it did not escape eagle eyed Atlas reader Van). Before Lois Lerner got her current job at the IRS as head of
the Tax-Exempt Division, she
worked at the FEC as head of the Enforcement Division, where she had a
rather contentious track record for targeting conservatives.
Lois Lerner, IRS official and director of IRS’s Exempt Organizations Division is at the center of the IRS scandal. Lerner was formerly head of the Enforcement Office at the Federal Election Commission (FEC) where there are reports of her politically motivated harassment of conservative groups, according to a May 20 report on “The Weekly Standard.”
Lerner brought her skulduggery and utter disregard for the law to her new job
with the IRS. Another Obama socialist and lawbreaker on the warpath using the full authority and power of the US government to terrorize and bully American citizens. Has any other person so singlehandedly influenced not just one, but two
elections? Obama always rewards his lieutenants. Think Jarrett,
Axlerod, Emanuel, Holder, ad nauseum.
government has been infiltrated by these Socialist Progressives and America
haters who stuff themselves at the public trough while avoiding any
accountability in their subversion of the law. The Obama years will be remembered most for their imperious lawlessness.

“IRS’s Lerner Had History of Harassment, Inappropriate Religious Inquiries at FEC Targeted Christian Coalition” Weekly Standard, May 20, 2013
Perhaps no other IRS official is more intimately associated with
the tax agency’s growing scandal than Lois Lerner, director of the
IRS’s Exempt Organizations Division. Since admitting the IRS harassed
hundreds of conservative and Tea Party groups for over two years, Lerner
has been criticized for a number of untruths—including
the revelation that she apparently lied about planting a question at
an American Bar Association conference where she first publicly
acknowledged IRS misconduct.
Still, Lerner has her defenders in the government and the media. Shortly after the scandal broke, The Daily Beast published an article headlined “IRS Scandal’s Central Figure, Lois Lerner, Described as ‘Apolitical.’”
Insisting Lerner, and the IRS more broadly, were not not politically
motivated has been a central contention of those trying to minimize the
impact of the scandal.
The trouble with this defense is that, prior to joining the IRS,
Lerner’s tenure as head of the Enforcement Office at the Federal
Election Commission (FEC) was marked by what appears to be politically
motivated harassment of conservative groups.
