    I wrote an article in my company's blog ( about email retention best practices for businesses and the fact that the IRS has a requirement that you and I retain emails for seven years.

    It would appear that Lois Lerner may be in violation of the Federal Records Act, Internal Revenue Manual section (which refers to the IRS’s preservation of electronic mail messages), IRS Document 12829 (General Records Schedule 23, Records Common to Most Offices, Item 5 Schedule of Daily Activities), 36 C.F.R. 1230 (reporting accidental destruction,) and 36 CFR 1222.12 but will she face any consequences because of it?

    I think that we all know the answer to that question!
