The IRS “accidentally” erased 422 backup tapes that investigators believe contained emails to and from IRS official Lois Lerner, according to the Associated Press.

The tapes contained as many as 24,000 Lois Lerner emails. The tapes were erased eight months after Congressional investigators requested all emails to and from Lois Lerner and a month after the IRS informed Congress they were missing some of Lois Lerner’s emails.

“If the establishment press treated Richard Nixon’s missing audio the way they are treating the destruction of emails by the Obama IRS, Nixon would have served a full eight years as President,” said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform.
