Lois Lerner has finally broken the silence since pleading the Fifth before the House Oversight Committee. She granted an interview to Politico magazine, in which she did more whining than sharing any useful information.
What caught the most attention was that she said people shouldn’t be so angry with her, and compared herself to Jeffrey Dahmer:
BQ Among the hate mail, Lerner’s “favorite” is one that says she’ll “go down in history as the worst person ever in the United States.”
“I just thought, ‘Boy, worse than Jeffrey Dahmer?’” she asks, her face crinkling up, eyebrows pinching together in disbelief.
This statement, see, came in the middle of complaining about the “harassment” she’s received since leaving the IRS. It seems conservatives are trying to ruin her life.
Lerner doesn’t think she’s that bad…she just used the powers of her public office to punish her political enemies and grant favors to causes she liked. It’s not like she ruined anyone’s life.
