Pelosi: IRS Needs to ‘Upgrade Their Technology’

Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi doesn’t appear to think that there was foul play in the Internal Revenue Service’s misplacement of key emails from Lois Lerner, the ex-agency official at the center of the ongoing IRS scandal. At her weekly press conference Thursday morning, the California Democrat said her takeaway from reports that Lerner’s emails have been lost forever was simply that the IRS needs to upgrade its technology infrastructure. “What it convinces me of is they need a new technology system at the IRS,” Pelosi said, adding that Lerner’s emails were not the only ones missing after an alleged computer meltdown. “Reports all show that those responsible did not know about the years of the crashes of their systems until a couple of years later, so I think they need to upgrade their technology, get it right so there’s no suspicion about what agenda anyone might have.”
