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.
