In this turbulent and interesting election season many U.S. citizens, even conservatives, seemed to have forgotten about the controversy that included the IRS targeting “Tea Party” groups. But Trey Gowdy remembers.

The Republican from South Carolina interrogated the IRS commissioner in a Congressional hearing on the topic, and it was something to see.
Of course, the commissioner denied any wrongdoing and tried to joke about his legal experience (or lack thereof.) Gowdy wasn’t amused.
After lecturing the commissioner about basic legal concepts regarding the destruction of evidence, Gowdy got him to admit that he hadn’t even reviewed any relevant criminal statutes before beginning his “investigation.” The commissioner said he was relying on “common sense,” instead.
And this is only the beginning. Gowdy has proved to be a lot more skillful and competent than the commissioner.
Think about it, the chief of the IRS seems not to understand what’s lawful and what isn’t. We should feel just ‘fine’ with them managing your and mine tax returns.
