DOJ Finds That The IRS Is Terrible And Stupid But Not Criminal

The Justice Department is not impressed, tax nerds.

Apparently the Department of Justice has finished looking into that whole kerfuffle about the IRS f*cking with conservative groups looking for tax-exempt status.

No IRS official would face criminal charges arising from the political controversy over the processing of applications for tax-exempt status, the Justice Department announced Friday.
In a letter to members of Congress, the department said that while investigators had found “mismanagement, poor judgment and institutional inertia,” there was no evidence of a crime.

Well that's reassuring.
