I have to say, this is nice to see, but maybe we should be pondering the idea that if the IRS wasn’t so powerful, the scam wouldn’t have been nearly as effective.

Put another way, the scam was effective because the Americans that they were harassing wouldn’t put it past the IRS to act like that.

Perhaps part of the answer going forward is reining in the IRS both in terms of power and in attitude?

And maybe we should be examining why it took them so long to accomplish this. I wonder if it has anything to do with the change in the White House…
