A Job for Lois

I guess I knew about this when the matter came to light, but I had forgotten about it — what with the speed and volume of news and all. A Politico article reminded me: “In most of her criticized email correspondence released thus far from GOP investigators, Lerner has referred to scrutinizing conservative groups, like Crossroads GPS, while at the same time joking with colleagues that she wanted to work for the pro-Obama group Organizing for America.”
