REP. PAUL GOSAR (R-AZ): Are you aware that in July, 2012, Senator Harry Reid claimed Mitt Romney hadn't paid taxes for the last 10 years and claimed to have the information supporting that? Are you aware of that? I'm sure you are.Yes, shame on you Mr. Shulman! Shame on you, because when Harry Reid released that "pertinent information" the first thing the IRS should have done was to launch a probe into how Reid obtained it. If anything, Gosar went too easy on Shulman, because from the moment Shulman became of aware of Reid's obviously accurate and carefully documented bombshell, he should have put an entire team of investigators on the case. The fact that he didn't isn't just a scandal—it's a scandal that's probably even linked to Benghazi, which was (until now) the biggest scandal ever.
FORMER IRS COMMISSIONER DOUGLAS SHULMAN: I have a recollection of reading that in the paper.
GOSAR: Do you know how Mr. Reid obtained that information? Did you look into this?
SHULMAN: I -- I have no idea how he...
GOSAR: Doesn't that alarm you that -- all of a sudden, this pertinent information comes up, you're the head of this agency, and you're not asking questions? Shame on you. Absolutely shame on you.
And while we're at it, The Onion today reports that the Obama administration is converting its drone fleet to taser drones. Who leaked that information? What were they trying to accomplish? And was Rand Paul a target? These are important questions about pertinent information, and if you don't want to get to the bottom of them, shame on you too! Absolutely, shame on you too!
