Posted on 07/17/2013 6:58:45 PM PDT by kristinn
More than two years after her upstart Senate campaign rocked the Delaware political world, Christine ODonnell got an unexpected contact from a U.S. Treasury Department agent warning that her private tax records may have been breached.
The phone message earlier this year shocked the battled-scarred candidate, a tea party favorite who knocked off Republican mainstay Michael Castle in the primary before losing in a bid to win Vice President Joseph R. Bidens former seat.
Ms. ODonnell, this is Dennis Martel, special agent with the U.S. Department of Treasury in Baltimore, Md. We received information that your personal federal tax info may have been compromised and may have been misused by an individual, he said in the January message left on her cellphone.
For Ms.Donnell, the message immediately raised red flags.
On March 9, 2010, the day she revealed her plan to run for the Senate in a press release, a tax lien was placed on a house purported to be hers and publicized. The problem was she no longer owned the house. The IRS eventually blamed the lien on a computer glitch and withdrew it.
Now Martel, a criminal investigator for the Treasury Departments inspector general for tax administration, was telling her that an official in Delaware state government had improperly accessed her records on that very same day.
Beyond that, Ms. ODonnell and Senate investigators who have tried to help her have run into a wall of silence, leaving more questions than answers about whether abuses of the IRS system extend to private individuals and not just the tax-exempt groups already identified as victims.
I dont know. And Id like to know, Ms. ODonnell told The Washington Times in her first interview about the case. Because whether its one, eight or 80 [cases], its an abuse of power...

Government is out of control. The only way the GOP wins again is if we find a candidate who will take this on w/o apology. Anyone else will get crushed under the weight of the government/media destruction machine. Our only chance is someone that operates outside the rules and fights back and rallies the American people.
“We received information that your personal federal tax info may have been compromised and may have been misused by an individual,”
Gee, I wonder who this individual was.
Obama ordered his IRS to rig the election for it and democrats/socialists in the Senate
The Obama regime makes the Nazis look like a bunch of nice guys. The government is out of control.
It’s SOP when Democrats are in charge. It’s pure and simple fact.
We are going to Fundamentally Restore America, if it takes Texas splitting into 5 states with 10 senators with Constitutional Amendment capacity combined with the rest of the States.
Since this Martel showed her the name and picture of the person who accessed her records illegally, she should sue this individual and force discovery.
WRONG! They are too much "in control"! They are "changing", we are just "hoping"! Alinsky rules!
Fast & Furious
Look! Squirrel! (pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!)
Obama didn't have to "order" anything. He knew that his supporters in positions of power in the government -- federal, state, and local -- would do everything that was needed (illegal or unethical) to get him reelected. He can keep his hands clean.
Government workers should be banned from politics. Period. They have an irreconcilable conflict of interest.
Corruption is widespread and accountability none. Yet, the same who dont follow the law are throwing the book at innocent people
It is incomprehensible that our government would do that to a political candidate.
But, its too bad O’Donnell self destructed.
We may safely assume that the Tax Records of every 0bama opponent were, are, and will be breached
If the Left CAN abuse power, they WILL abuse power.
That is why the Left can not be trusted with an NSA surveillance society.
I agree. O’Donnell should out the perp and sue their ass off....very publicly.
Just another way to destroy Christine personally, and one mroe reason why she needs to run again.
Probably by Tokyo Rove.
Government is out of control. The only way the GOP wins again is if we find a candidate who will take this on w/o apology.
Well you are right that Government is out of control. However, the conservatives need to stop putting up freaks as our candidates. She was the Worst candidate ever in history to run. The biggest embarrassment to conservatives. Anyone who does not agree with this is LYING!
Well, she was a witch...
23 posts and still no Jonathan Moseley...
CORRUPTION! Of the highest order!
christine, thank you again, for all the injustice and heartache you’ve endured for our nation’s sake. justice will come. if not from this nation, then it will come down from on high.
sounds like a job for Sarah!
Aren't y'all happy about living in a Banana Republic? Wake up. See it for what it's worth.
They can’t be trusted with anything...
I mean anything....
Pitchforks and torches are too dated,,,,
Can’t just ask them politely...
Fake outrage, some sort of hearing, and in the end...nothing happens.
She was flaky but this seems like it should be a pretty big story.
I remember Limbaugh saying years ago that the left would work to just outlaw the political opposition.
How prophetic a statement that was.
F the GOP. This has become tyranny, it will end in millions of dead.
It has been said since 2008 by those who understand the Chicago Machine, Marxists and their history - America has seen her last free and “honest” national elections.
We have gone full-Soviet in the shell-game and intimidations the Ruling Class perpetrated on us last year.
If you are pinning hopes on 2014 - you hope in vain.
The ballot box will be of no avail. It’s been fully and completely compromised and corrupted.
We can no longer work within or from without of this behemoth system of tyranny now imposed on us.
The regime will make their last mistake and force compliance and subjugation by raw force if intimidation, harassment and punishment does not achieve the results it wants.
The rule of law is dead. The rule of the iron fist is at hand.
>> If you are pinning hopes on 2014 - you hope in vain.
The only deterrents going into 2014 are the Republicans in Congress.
Yes, and that thought even spreads to everything else like sending money to political candidates or Tea Party groups or even signing the various petitions opposing Regime actions. There is now a blanket of intimidation over the country that discourages going on record against Obama and his fellow totalitarians.
The liberal fascists have no regard for the constitution and consequently our formerly perfect “union” is now deteriorating into Civil War.
These ba$tards deserve to be arrested , tried and jailed or else there will come a backlash of violence against them. A pox on Obama and every one of his liberal fascists in Delaware and elsewhere in our nation.Soon the US public will conclude they must go, be arrested or die.A free people cannot live under a fascist regime.
Fundamental transformation sucks.
All commands are issued verbally to Jarrett, who then issues her own verbal commands. No electronic or paper trail.
From Howie Carr:
Don't write, when you can speak. Don't speak, when you can nod. Don't nod, when you can wink.
And just for fun, Howie's other rule of politics:
Nothing's on the level. Everything's a deal. No deal too small.
If WE THE PEOPLE do not fight this kind of thing (especially this specific criminal act) we are not America any more. Liberty is shrinking and we are losing the battle for the Idea Of America.
Hello! Wake TF up people, we HAVE to learn how to convey THE message in this day and age!
Crank up those subpoena presses dammit. Not one piece of legislation should MOVE until this rats nest has been ferreted out. Take a freaking STAND for crying out loud! Got those gloves off and grow a set!
I now have my phone calls lines up to my Congressman and Senator for today.
The IRS - End It, Don’t Mend It.
Well Ms. ODonnell if you don’t join the ACLJ’s suit against the IRS and do nothing...don’t expect anything.
Either side will, which is why the founders sought to limit power.
That is why the Left can not be trusted with an NSA surveillance society.
I don't trust ANYONE with a surveillance society--especially one which ignores the Constitution.
Power corrupts, absolute power corrupts absolutely.
