Partisan Activities of Lerner Co-Worker at FEC

The blatant partisan activities  of an employee of the Federal Election Commission  have been detailed by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, which is seeking information relating to a former co-worker, Lois Lerner. The loss of emails has hampered discovery.  

The committee released a letter  from chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., to Lee Goodman, the chairman of the Federal Election Commission, asking for records and information about the activities of April Sands. The Inspector General of the Commission reported she could not obtain some of Sands' emails, since the Commission had recycled her computer hard drive. As a result, there was no prosecution.
