after all, any reputation for honesty and even-handedness isn't important, right?
court filing, provided to The Daily Caller, claims the IRS received new
Lerner emails from the Treasury Department’s inspector general (TIGTA)
but can’t fork over the emails to Judicial Watch, a nonprofit group
suing to get the emails. Why? Because the IRS is busy making sure that none of the emails are duplicates – you know, so as not to waste
Yeah, THAT'S why they don't want to turn them over.
Secretary of the Treasury Jacob Lew, Obama’s former White House chief of staff, seized all of the emails that went back and forth between the IRS and the White House and won’t hand them over, arguing that since confidential taxpayer information was illegally disclosed in the emails, then it would be illegal to make the emails public – since they have confidential taxpayer information in them. Get it?
"This gun control law saved lots of lives(we think. Maybe. We're not sure)!"
The author also notes some other “potential problems” with the study. In
order to compare what Connecticut would look like without the law, they
created a “synthetic” Connecticut — a Frankensteinian creation
that is mostly Rhode Island, with some Maryland, and traces of
California, Nevada and New Hampshire. Seriously? What could
possibly go wrong with that? You’re comparing actual data to a model you
created out of thin air involving multiple places which are not Connecticut? Hey… Science!
And downhill from there.
