Here is the video of MSNBC’s Karen Finney, former DNC spokesperson, in all her “glory.”
The IRS’s targeting of conservatives? No big whoop. Otherwise, why wouldn’t Romney have totally brought it up during the election, huh?
More from Mediaite:
Finney objected to this characterization. “There’s something about this that I find stunning,” she said. “Everybody knew about this investigation long before the election. So if they were that freaked out about it, why didn’t Romney make more of a big deal of it during the election?”
“It wasn’t confirmed yet,” interjected National Journal editorial director Ron Fournier. “This is a big deal. Period.”
“Come on,” Finney shot back. “There was an opportunity to talk about this before the election.” She said that the notion that the White House was trying to cover the IRS scandal up strikes her as unfounded.
Ludicrous. She then tried to backpedal on Twitter, but just ended up doubling down on the idiocy.
Story was out before the election, GOP raised it but didn't pursue – now they're acting like its first they've heard of it—

Oh, well then. Case closed!
Bless her heart.
