From The Washington Times:
Former IRS executive Lois G. Lerner told a federal court last week that members of her family, including “young children,” face death threats and a real risk of physical harm if her explanation of the tea party targeting scandal becomes public.
Ms. Lerner and Holly Paz, her deputy at the IRS, filed documents in court Thursday saying tapes and transcripts of depositions they gave in a court case this year must remain sealed in perpetuity, or else they could spur an enraged public to retaliate.
“Whenever Ms. Lerner and Paz have been in the media spotlight, they have faced death threats and harassment,” attorneys for the two women argued.
Now if they did nothing wrong why oh why would they be afraid of harassment?
And man, why does this sound so familiar?
So Lerner is afraid of retaliation if say her private information & discussions were to become public & used against her politically? https://t.co/OzTtHyahz8

They were trying to get people prosecuted and put in jail. That is what they’re hiding. This was already revealed.

That there would be called justice.
We have a right to know how they broke laws. No reason to keep their depositions sealed.

Not a WHOLE lot of sympathy, Lois.
