IRS Abuses: Ensuring that targeting never happens again

That's the title for the House Oversight hearing, but frankly it's a bit optimistic. So far we've had one person resign and another retire with full pension after months of paid vacation. Those aren't consequences.

The actual reform proposals seem like weak tea. While archiving instant messages is an obvious step, people who destroy data to evade Congressional investigations don't just need to be fired. People need to go to jail for the original offenses and probably for the cover-up, too. Short of that, no one will be discouraged.
