    Here's a link to the story:

    Embattled IRS official Lois Lerner appeared to be deeply involved in scrutinizing the applications of Tea Party groups for tax-exempt status, according to newly released emails that further challenge the claim the targeting was the work of rogue Ohio-based employees.

    One curious February 2011 email from Lerner said, "Tea Party Matter very dangerous" -- before going on to warn that the "matter" could be used to go to court to test campaign spending limits.

    She apparently questions whether or not "Cincy" -- presumably the Cincinnati IRS office that is said to have "gone rogue" by this corrupt administration -- should retain control over the applications. It reads, in the redacted version of the email released by the House Ways and Means Committee, as though she was suggesting she should take control, making her the primary conspirator in the IRS, not a couple of "lowly agents" as has been her story all along.
