Reward: $1 Million for Lost IRS E-mails

File under: I love internal government battles.

Reps. Bill Flores (R-Tex.) and Louie Gohmert (R-Tex.) introduced legislation this week to offer a reward of $1 million to anyone who can uncover the "lost" IRS emails of Lois Lerner (A Summary of the IRS Email Scandal To-Date).

Get this: The reward money would be taken out of the IRS budget.

The legislation is somewhat tongue and cheek, but the idea of immediate rewards from the budgets of government agencies for whistleblowers within agencies is an idea I highly endorse.

The more turmoil that can be caused within government agencies, the less time they have to harass us.



  1. Do you have to report the reward to the IRS?

  2. Internecine battles between government abominations are always fun!
