NOT BUYING IT: Large Majority of Voters Thinks IRS ‘Deliberately’ Destroyed Emails


As House Republicans continue to dig for the truth – and the IRS continues to obfuscate and stonewall – a new poll shows most Americans aren’t buying the agency’s line about Lois Lerner’s missing emails.

Fox News reports:

The consensus is: it’s no accident. More than three-quarters of voters — 76 percent — think the emails missing from the account of Lois Lerner, the ex-IRS official at the center of the scandal over targeting of conservative groups, were deliberately destroyed.

That’s according to a new Fox News poll.

That suspicion is shared across party lines, albeit to varying degrees. An overwhelming 90 percent of Republicans think the emails were intentionally destroyed, as do 74 percent of independents and 63 percent of Democrats.

“Some 74 percent of voters now say lawmakers should investigate the IRS ‘until someone is held accountable,’ up from 67 percent who felt that way in April. That includes 66 percent of Democrats,” Fox reports.
