An IT problem

While many Republicans see a conspiracy in the IRS losing Lois Lerner’s email, I have to chuckle.

I am not a highly paid political appointee but I have served on active duty in the Army three times.

Back around 2005 someone did not back up our Brigade server at Fort Sill. I lost every Army form, presentation, award, etc. saved to the server.

The IRS does have better IT support than I did at the time but the IRS is a government agency.

So is it possible the IRS lost some old emails? Does a Republican president appoint a climate change skeptic to the EPA?

Yes and yes.
