I'm thankful I don't have William Wilkins' memory

The IRS has a total of two political appointees on purpose so as to minimize political influence. These appointees are the head of the organization and its general counsel. Apparently the general counsel has been imitating a hostile mafia witness in front of the government oversight committee. Saying that he didn't remember 80 times regarding conversations and actions covering the inappropriate targeting mostly conservative populist groups like the tea party, Wilkins' consiglieri act did not amuse majority Republicans who have sent a letter inviting him to revise his testimony after he refreshes his memory. “Your failure to recollect important aspects of the Committee’s investigation suggests either a deliberate attempt to obfuscate your involvement in this matter or gross incompetence on your part.” That's got to sting.
