On March 4, Gowdy appeared on Fox News, and anchor Bill Hemmer asked, "if you aren't convinced that this [IRS pseudo scandal] did not start in the Cincinnati office, where did it come from?" Gowdy didn't wait a beat:Every bit of that, it turned out, was horse plop, and the committee Gowdy was a part of went on to prove nothing except that the Darrell Issa leak machine was willing to go to O'Keefeish lengths to cobble together things that would justify their continued presence in front of the cameras. Gowdy in particular has been insistent that the IRS plot to enforce laws on nonprofit groups was a conspiracy hatched from the "Biden-Obama" team. He's only dodged bad press for his made-up theories because with publicity hound Issa around he could hardly get a word in edgewise.
Washington, DC. Keep in mind Bill, you remember the State of the Union, where the president famously chastised the supreme court for their decision in Citizens United? And to their face at the State of the Union. Democrats don't like that opinion, and they immediately started a project. And that's not my word, that's [Lois Lerner's] word. They started a project to unravel Citizens United because they are tired of outside groups going after Democrats. This was orchestrated, it was planned, and we'll prove it tomorrow.
But now, thanks to Issa finally discrediting himself even in the eyes of other House Republicans, Gowdy is gaining the limelight himself. House Republicans are hoping that will re-establish a bit of gravitas in their never-ending Benghazi "investigation," but that will likely last only until Gowdy again opens his mouth.
