It certainly sheds new light on Cumming's outbursts and fervent claims that there is nothing to investigate. It's sort of the ultimate fox guarding the hen house for him to sit on the IRS oversight committee and be colluding with the IRS to target his "enemies". I must say that I'm feeling pretty sheepish these days, because I'm usually pretty prescient and I did not see that one coming at all. While the crimes that were committed are outrageous, that none of the perpetrators are being investigated or prosecuted (that Holder says they are is a L-I-E, as none of the victims have STILL been interviewed by anyone) is outrageous, but that the trail leads to a member of the Senate Oversight Committee on the IRS is beyond outrageous and beyond the pale.

There are so many conflicts of interest in Washington and hidden agendas that it boggles the mind. We only see a tiny fraction of the iceberg. None of this corruption would even be possible if we still had a Tenth Amendment and the Federal Government was still constrained by our Constitution. This kind of top to bottom corruption is only possible when government has grown to gargantuan and uncontrollable size and is so powerful they don't believe the laws apply to themselves. Really, we are just going to see more, and more, and more, and more of this. It will never end. It will just keep getting worse, and worse, and worse till even misanthropes who love government and love power can't deny how totally corrupt it is. By that time there will be no reforming it. We will have to start over because corruption has become imbedded in its DNA.
