” I’m a born free American woman, wife, mother and citizen. And I’m telling my government that you have forgotten your place. It’s not your responsibility to look out for my well-being, and to monitor my speech. It’s not your right to assert an agenda. Your post, the post that you occupy, exists to preserve American liberty, You’ve sworn to perform that duty. And you have faltered.”

Becky Gerritson of the Wetumptka Tea Party, testifying today before the House Ways and Means Committee about abuse by the IRS.

You will notice that Mrs. Gerritson received a letter demanding information, to which the IRS is not entitled, bearing Lois Lerner’s signature. Lerner claimed that IRS abuse of groups such as the Wetumptka Tea Party was the work of a couple of “rogue employees.”
