So, Lois Lerner Had a Second Secret Email, Using the Name "Toby Miles," With Which She Conducted Official, But Secret, IRS Business

And you know what they say -- whenever someone creates a secret email system to avoid scrutiny and accountability, that's an absolute guarantee that everything they're doing is on the up and up.

The Free Beacon's Morgan Chalfant:

Ex-IRS official Lois Lerner used a second personal email account under the name of “Toby Miles” to conduct official business during the time of the conservative group targeting scandal.

The Washington Times reported that the IRS admitted Monday in a court filing that Lerner used not one but two personal email accounts in addition to her official IRS email during her time heading the government agency’s Exempt Organizations Unit.

According to IRS lawyer Geoffrey J. Klimas, the agency discovered the email account when it was assembling documents to turn over to Judicial Watch, the public interest law group that filed an open-records lawsuit to gain access to emails sent by Lerner during the time she targeted conservative groups seeking tax exempt status.


...


"It is simply astonishing that years after this scandal erupted we are learning about an account Lois Lerner used that evidently hadn’t been searched," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said, accusing the IRS of concealing information from Lerner that could inform the targeting controversy.

Astonishing? I do not think that word means what you think it means, Mr. Fitton.
