If the rule of law won’t work, throw in a little money.
Like a cool million bucks.
In a stroke of brilliance, U.S. Reps. Louie Gohmert and Bill Flores, both Republicans from Texas, have introduced a bill that offers a $1 million reward to anyone who can produce former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner‘s emails.
And if that’s not enough incentive, the IRS Act — The Identify and Recover Sent E-mails Act — includes a $500,000 bonus for information on the destruction of the emails that can be used for prosecution of the individuals involved.
The money to pay these rewards would come from the agency’s fiscal year 2014 budget.
Adding motivation for a whistle-blower to step forward, the bill also proposes to cut salaries at the IRS by 20 percent, until the emails are recovered.
