Indeed. Right when they were about to move on from the previous scandal, they’ve dug the IRS grave a little deeper. This time it is a leak of thousands of social security numbers. This information comes from a recent audit by Public.Resource.org. It was disclosed that thousands of social security numbers had been leaked by the IRS for almost a whole day, until the mistake was noticed.

The database involved in the exposure of these social security numbers were those who filed 527s, filed by nonprofit political groups. The chances of IRS trying to cover up this “oopsie” are about as good as the exposed social security numbers being from nonprofit Republican groups. The IRS has created quite the track record lately.
