Sarah Palin issued a challenge to the Washington Post to do the same job investigating President Barack Obama as it did with President Richard Nixon during Watergate.
In a Facebook post on Sunday
, the former Alaska governor pointed specifically to the IRS scandal. She said the missing 18½ minutes on the White House tapes from Nixon's office pale in comparison to the "1.2 million minutes" of communications former IRS official Lois Lerner and other employees say were lost in various computer hard-drive crashes.
Lerner resigned over the scandal and has pleaded the Fifth Amendment before Congress. She headed up the division of the IRS that targeted conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status during the 2010 presidential election.
"You've allowed Obama to skate with his proclamation that absolutely no wrongdoing occurred at the IRS, 'not even a smidgen,'" Palin wrote.
Palin said the list of impeachable offenses against Obama is long, and said the Post should treat Obama the same way it treated Nixon.
"If not, you prove yourselves incompetent and in bed with Obama, not caring one iota about media integrity," she wrote.
Palin called those running the Post today "a bunch of wusses" who fear not being invited to Washington cocktail parties and "petty gossip fests" if they challenge Obama.
