Maggie Gallagher: The IRS Got Tricked Into Leaking NOM’s Tax Return

“The IRS is claiming — and I think it is plausible — that low-level
employees found a clever way to use their low-level job to influence
(they hoped) a U.S. election. Have they been identified and
fired? Because otherwise this becomes no longer a low-level problem. (You
may recall that a low-level employee also released NOM’s private
tax-return information to a guy claiming to be a NOM employee, who then
posted it on the Internet.)” – Maggie Gallagher, writing for the National Review four days before NOM announced its lawsuit.  If NOM’s own co-founder admits that the IRS didn’t release the return on purpose, their lawsuit is laughable.
