Now that the back up tapes have miraculously reappeared, and Lois Lerner’s emails for the period during which conservative and Tea Party groups were looking to get non-profit status have been recovered, it is time for the House of Representatives to burn the midnight oil and do some pretty hefty late night reading.

In addition, the IRS would also have to delete information about taxpayers that is considered private before it can be released to the committee, which is headed by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif.

Â We on the fruited plain will be watching to find out what is in them.
