Maybe because it’s a felony?

Chris Matthews said, “That would be a good leak. Somebody at the IRS just leaking. I thought they were all liberals over there. Why doesn’t somebody just leak it?”

Pursuant to 26 US Code Sec. 7213, disclosing an individual’s return information is “a felony punishable upon conviction by a fine in any amount not exceeding $5,000, or imprisonment of not more than 5 years, or both.”

Howard Fineman suggested that IRS people haven’t leaked because “they might actually believe in the ethics of their job.”

Matthew just laughed.  Cuz, hey, what’s a felony or two if it would hurt a Republican president, right?
