Howard and five other tax examiners at the ITIN processing center in Austin all told WTHR the same thing: for years, IRS managers have instructed them to "look the other way" while processing ITIN applications that appear to be filed fraudulently – even when those applications contain clear signs of criminal activity.
IRS hit with audit for mismanagement and fraud - 13 WTHR Indianapolis

Further proof of the dysfunctional mess this country has become in its' quest to appease illegal aliens and the corporate masters.

Whistleblower punished?
Simply by speaking out, the quiet tax examiner could save taxpayers billions -- but at a personal cost.
A few days after Howard met with WTHR, the IRS slashed his job performance rating which will affect his paycheck. The IRS claims every aspect of Howard's job performance dropped during the past six months, shifting his overall rating from "exceeds fully successful" to "minimally successful." Howard believes the poor review is retaliation for blowing the whistle on his managers. He wonders what might happen next.
"I'm a little nervous, but not really. I guess they could try to fire me, but I don't think they will," he said, vowing to continue his fight for ITIN reform. "I just want to see things fixed. We've been allowing the U.S. taxpayer to get robbed for years now and those days appear to be over

This country is imploding one day at a time.

Don't worry, Obama's going to fix it. It's all in his Hope & Change plan. If he can just get elected one more time. Just one more time------

For this example (already brought up in this forum), what is the "clear signs of criminal activity"?...

Yep, you can tell from all that he's done in the last 3.5 years that he's got everything under control.

Howard thought it suspicious that a school in South Carolina didn't exist (I can't find where it list the possible school that will be attended on the W-7 application), and didn't want to issue ITINs to some kids. His supervisors overruled him. What are the "clear signs of criminal activity" here?

I read the source. If I prompt for further information, it means that after I read the source, I was still wondering what the issue was. One time I got dinked for saying I was surprised that "chicagonut" read something, what are you trying to imply?

To me it looked like Howard got a bad review, then tried to make something of any incident he could think of...
