Partisan Activities of Lerner Co-Worker at FEC

The blatant partisan activities of an employee of the Federal Election Commission have been detailed by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, which is seeking information relating to a former co-worker, Lois Lerner. The loss of emails has hampered discovery.

The committee released a letter from chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., to Lee Goodman, the chairman of the Federal Election Commission, asking for records and information about the activities of April Sands. The Inspector General of the Commission reported she could not obtain some of Sands’ emails, since the Commission had recycled her computer hard drive. As a result, there was no prosecution.

Sands resigned from the Federal Election Commission (FEC) this year, after admitting to a violation of the Hatch Act. In earlier years, Sands had worked in the same office as Lois Lerner, whose emails are being sought by the congressional committee in an investigation of possible partisan activities at the IRS. It is not clear if there were any communications between Lerner and Sands after Lerner left the FEC to work at the IRS.
