Paul, I'm sorry to say it took Glenn Reynolds' prompting to remind me to thank you for continuing this. But thank you.

Posted by: Charlie (Colorado) | Oct 2, 2013 8:19:19 AM

Keep up the good work. Professor Caron. It's much appreciated since the MSM doesn't appear interested in doing their jobs.

Thanks very much for staying on top of this issue, which the media seems to have pushed towards the back-burner.

Glen Reynolds reminded me that I have been remiss in not thanking you for this labor. I visit every day via links from Instapundit, and much appreciate your work.

Posted by: TennLion | Oct 2, 2013 10:06:30 AM

Thank you for keeping on top of the IRS scandal!

Posted by: Tom Lo | Oct 2, 2013 10:15:28 AM

This is a fantastic record of what MSM would like to hide. Keep it up Paul!

One more thank you, Professor Caron.

My theory on Lerner's quick retirement was to protect her pension. Failing to answer your employer's appropriate, employment related questions is clear grounds for dismissal/firing. The consequence to her would be losing her pension. Once retired it will be far harder and more legally difficult to revoke her pension. Some public 'servant'

I wanted to pass my word of thanks. Please continue to perform this vital public knowledge archive, it will be an invaluable historical tool for an as yet unrealized future.

Posted by: CB | Oct 2, 2013 11:13:37 AM

You're doing great work! It's hard to keep up with all the scandals but I KNOW you are on top of this one!

Posted by: Tom Light | Oct 2, 2013 11:25:21 AM

Thank you so much for keeping on top of this scandal. 5 months is just heart-breaking, but a tyrant must be bearded.

Posted by: Guy Wells | Oct 2, 2013 11:39:37 AM

Thank you Professor Caron for your day to day diligence revealing the various IRS fiascos. The IRS individuals involved in this should be doing the 'walk of shame', but let's face it, they have none and may not even know what 'shame' is.

Posted by: Suzanne Hawthorne Alexander | Oct 2, 2013 12:14:29 PM

Good job; thanks for the record keeping.

Posted by: blogRot | Oct 2, 2013 12:26:28 PM

Thank you so much for the continued focus on an important subject that the MSM will do anything to avoid discussing.

Posted by: Inajeep | Oct 2, 2013 12:41:36 PM

Like John Milton, you serve the truth.

Posted by: cj pomponio | Oct 2, 2013 1:14:24 PM

Thank you for tracking this thing. Its big, important, and will get complicated. So your efforts are a big contribution to the public discussion. Thank you again, John Kirk

Thanks for your continued diligence

Posted by: Mike | Oct 2, 2013 2:20:18 PM

I appreciate your efforts towards communication and education on taxation; especially as it applies to the concept being utilized as a weapon of liberal politics.

Posted by: GG | Oct 2, 2013 2:32:53 PM

That you. This log of events is important.

Posted by: Ben | Oct 2, 2013 5:39:18 PM

Even the title in each daily entry is newsworthy. Thank you!

Posted by: sbw | Oct 2, 2013 5:49:37 PM

The federal government is itself a clear and present danger to America and the American People. I don't know if we are quite citizens anymore, more like subjects.

Posted by: Rogue low level employee | Oct 2, 2013 5:54:37 PM

Thank you for the excellent continuing coverage!

...
The star itself, heaven’s greatest star,
Not a meteorite but an avatar,
Who had made this overnight descent
To show by deeds he didn’t resent
My having depended on him so long,
And yet done nothing about it in song.
...
(Robert Frost, "One More Brevity")
Thank you Prof. Caron!!!

You are doing good work here. Thank you.

Posted by: Carol | Oct 3, 2013 1:23:41 AM

Thank you for your great work here. All of this needs to be thoroughly documented for future generations. Assuming that there will be any.

Posted by: Doh-San | Oct 3, 2013 9:41:04 AM

Future historians will be in your debt.

Posted by: Ron | Oct 3, 2013 10:29:23 AM
