Jason Mattera says he doesn’t think there was anything wrong with sticking a camera in disgraced former IRS official Lois Lerner’s face, in an unguarded moment, while she was out walking her dog. “This is the job of the media to go after people who have abused their status as a public servant,” said Mattera on Fox News’ Varney & Co. “And in Lois Lerner’s case,” she chose to crack “down on political opponents who were just trying to organize in this democracy.”
In case you missed it, yesterday Jason Mattera released exclusive footage of Lois Lerner running away as he attempted to ask her if she was sorry for using the IRS to silence and intimidate President Obama’s political opponents. In her attempts to escape Mattera, Lois Lerner tried to barge into an elderly neighbor’s home.
But when Lois Lerner went after conservative nonprofits, using the tax code as a bludgeoning tool, those groups had nowhere to hide.
Catching Lois Lerner on camera wasn’t hard at all, Mattera says. It actually “shows the pathetic state of the media. Any journalist in D.C. who wanted to ask her the questions that they should be asking, because it involves a clear case of public corruption, could’ve easily got to Lois Lerner.”
“This is America,” Mattera added. “People want to organize around their political beliefs in a democracy. And she tried to crush that dissent. She should be hounded every singe day until we get answers from her.”
