The FOIA public reading room at IRS headquarters is closed to the public. (Guards would not allow me to photo the locked door.) Outrageous.—

Remember yesterday’s stunning above-the-fold banner headline across USA Today’s front page? The no-nonsense truth bomb called, “IRS gave a pass to liberals”? The byline on that article belonged to the newspaper’s Washington correspondent Gregory Korte, who tweets today that the IRS won’t give him (or anyone else) as pass to the IRS’ Freedom of Information Act public reading room. Not only that: guards wouldn’t even let him photograph the door … which was locked, by the way. And no one seems to have the key.
There’s always the website.
Remember that handy tweet from the White House today reminding us that Obamacare is the law? So is maintaining a public reading room under the Freedom of Information Act.
Don’t worry about it, though; there’s nothing to see there anyway.
