Congress Begins To Wade Through 30,000 Lois Lerner Emails

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.

Some of the recovered emails might be duplicates. And it could take weeks to learn their content because they are encoded, said Frederick Hill, a spokesman for Republicans on the Oversight committee.

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.

Anyone who deals with email on a regular basis feels their pain.   After months of one reason after another of why emails could not be produced that network administrators just rolled their eyes over, federal investigators finally have the cache in hand.  We on the fruited plain will be watching to find out what is in them.
