I'm no computer genius, but even I knew the malarkey about Lois Lerner's emails being lost was precisely that. The so-called "loss" was blamed on an alleged "hard-drive crash" of her workstation computer. Here's a little tid-bit for those unfamiliar with local area networks. When emails enter and leave a work place, the ultimate origin and destination will be the individual's machine. But the emails will travel through the office's various network servers. Copies of all emails will be retained on those servers. As most know, offices are required to keep archives of their emails. Lerner's individual workstation may well have suffered a "hard-drive crash"; it doesn't matter. Copies of those same emails will be retained at the server level.
I've been harping on that little fact on facebook for some time. It now seems that light-bulbs are illuminating at long last, for an IRS official, Thomas Kane, admits that archive copies may still exist.
From another IRS email comes the news that MD Congressman Elijah Cummings may have requested or directed Lois Lerner to harass True the Vote and its founder, Catherine Engelbrecht. It certainly might shed some light on Cummings' behavior during the investigative hearings.
Marylanders of the 7th Congressional District! You have the opportunity this November to oust this man! Seize it!
