Not a smidgen to find.  The Minneapolis Star-Tribune has come to
the conclusion that a special prosecutor is actually advantageous to Democrats as public opinion and the credibility of the IRS and the Administration has been lost.

The decision on whether to appoint a special prosecutor, officially called a special counsel, lies with the Department of Justice. IRS officials have insisted that the lost e-mails were just
an unfortunate computer meltdown and that the extra scrutiny of groups with “Tea Party” and “Patriots” in their names was a regrettable mistake. If this is trumped-up, as Democrats often and
sometimes accurately deride other House investigations, there’s nothing to fear by appointing a special prosecutor to put this long-simmering scandal to bed.

...It was frustrating watching congressional hearings last week. New IRS Commissioner John Koskinen blew off concerns about the missing e-mails. Republicans’ understandable frustration
yielded little new information. Few if any had the technical expertise needed to really sort out what happened.  
A special prosecutor could compel stronger cooperation from the IRS,
consult technology experts and bring charges if necessary. Appointing one is a necessary and reasonable step to ensure that the American people learn the truth.

Senator Grassley, the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, certainly does not trust Attorney General Holder to properly exercise additional powers under the VRAA and would not give him

Attorney Generals' totally erroneous interpretation of the President's recess appointment powers.

Professor Walter Williams writes from firsthand experience. It's no coincidence that the speech regulators in academia are so involved with
finding ways around the First Amendment through the exercise of federal government power. "http://townhall.com/columnists/walterewilliams/2014/05/21/americas-budding-tyrants-n1840253/page/full" target="">Williams:



"Western values of liberty are under ruthless attack by the academic elite on college campuses across America. These people want to replace personal liberty with government control; they want to
replace equality with entitlement. As such, they pose a far greater threat to our way of life than any terrorist organization or rogue nation. "

Some 6.9 million Americans are registered to vote in two or more states, according to a report from an election-watch group.

“Our nation’s voter rolls are a mess,” says Catherine Engelbrecht, True The Vote president. “Sensible approaches to roll maintenance are fought tooth and nail by radical special interests who
can use the duplicity in the system to their advantage.”

The latest interstate voter cross check tallied 6,951,484 overlapping voter registrations, and they’re just the tip of the iceberg.

While these documents outlined the prosecutor's legal theory, they did not establish the existence of a crime," attorney Randall Crocker said in a statement released Thursday. "Rather, they
were arguments in support of further investigation to determine if criminal charges against any person or entity are warranted."

Crocker said that Walker, who is seeking re-election this year, was not a target of the probe and he has not been subpoenaed.
