With a major infrastructure spending bill hanging in the balance, Department of Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx on Monday compared Congress to shopping with his grandmother when she would tell him to put the toy back on the shelf because they were just browsing.
The Lois G. Lerner emails released this month revealed a potentially huge loophole in federal open-records practices when an IRS tech staffer acknowledged that the agency doesn't regularly store — and never checks — instant message chats as official government records.
