Perusing through the first page of the P&OC, I can't find a single topic on Benghazi, the IRS, or another of the other Obama "scandals" we've heard so much about over the past few months. What happened?

Uh, the drama queens slunk back to their corners when they realized none of it warranted any sort of hysterics.

It all started when Obama used his weather machine to create all those tornadoes in Oklahoma, for the sole purpose of distracting the American public from Benghazi.

House panel says IRS official waived 5th Amendment right - CNN.com

Washington (CNN) -- Republicans on a House committee rejected strenuous Democratic objections in voting Friday that Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner waived her constitutional right against self-incrimination at a prior hearing.
The resolution was the first step in an effort by Rep. Darrell Issa of California, the GOP chairman of the House Oversight Committee, to force Lerner to return to answer questions about targeting of conservative groups by the unit she headed.
Quote:
Both liberal and conservative groups were flagged by the IRS when assessing their eligibility for a tax break available to social welfare organizations.
However, only conservative groups faced delayed processing and inappropriate questioning about political activity that would make them ineligible, according to IRS Principal Deputy Commissioner Daniel Werfel and a letter by J. Russell George, the Treasury inspector general for tax administration.
Quote:
Under tough questioning Thursday at a House Ways and Means Committee hearing, Werfel acknowledged that the different BOLO categories meant liberal groups avoided the extra scrutiny cited by the inspector general that included processing delays and extensive questions perceived by conservatives as political intimidation.

They are not in the newspaper but the congressional committees are working on them.
