IRS Logo 2Headlines & Global News, Lois Lerner Begged Supervisor To Refrain From Visiting IRS Office Ahead Of 2012 Presidential Election, Bombshell Document Finds:

Ex-IRS official Lois Lerner reportedly pleaded with her supervisor not to deeply inquire about whether the IRS had unfairly targeted Tea Party and conservative groups for tax-exempt status just ahead of the 2012 presidential election, according to new emails obtained by a government watchdog group.

Joseph H. Grant, former Tax Exempt and Government Entities Division deputy director, was specifically asked by Lerner to refrain from visiting the tax agency's Cincinnati office and keep from asking specific questions related to any Congressional inquiries, according to emails obtained by Judicial Watch through a Freedom of Information Act Lawsuit.

Such exaggeration. I read her emails. She didn't beg. She merely nagged.
