The news is reporting that former IRS executive Lois G. Lerner and her deputy Holly Paz want their testimony in the Tea Party targeting investigation sealed because they’re afraid of public reaction should the information be released.
They should be afraid. Everyone sitting in a seat of power in a government office should be afraid of pissing off the public. “Tar, Feathers,” as Instapundit puts it, should probably be employed somewhat less than metaphorically from time to time, so as to reduce the possibility of “Rope, tree, some assembly required.”
At least some of the corrupt Illinois politicians end up serving time.
