Agency girls are going wild. Obama’s leading ladies make students partying on the beach look like amateurs.

Misbehavin’ is a resume booster in Washington, D.C. But not the kind of misbehaving that you might think. There are no wet t-shirt contests. It’s a buttoned-up misbehavin’—personified by middle-aged matrons on a mission for complete control over your life.

Here are is my annual edition of ‘Agency Girls Gone Wild:’

1.) Lois Lerner:

Lerner is the IRS Director of Exempt Organizations. Right now, she is on a paid summer vacation. You got one day of paid vacation last week for Independence Day. She’s getting the whole summer. Last week, Sarah Palin summed it up well on Fox News: “She’s not doing a lick of work.”

Remember, in early May, a big IRS scandal was about to burst? During the 2012 election campaigns, the IRS unethically targeted and delayed the approval of conservative non-profit organizations. (Obama couldn’t let any tea partiers influence the minds of swing voters like minorities, young people and women! Those were his votes.)

Well, an Inspector General’s report on this scandal was about to go public and the head honchos at the IRS were sweating bricks trying to figure out a way to delicately inform the public of their impropriety. IRS Commissioner Steve Miller reportedly helped Lerner concoct a scheme to mitigate the scandal by slowly leaking it to the public at a May 10 American Bar Association Conference.

The day before the ABA conference, Lerner picked up her phone and rang a D.C tax lawyer acquaintance of hers named Celia Roady. Lerner asked Roady to plant a question at the ABA conference.

The next day, when Roady asked the question, Lerner rattled off the remarks she and Miller had prepared regarding the scandal. The plan failed: News of the IRS’ unethical behavior immediately left the public shocked and furious.

When Lerner was questioned by the press, she dug her hole deeper.

Lerner: "I said that about a quarter of the cases that were selected for full developments had either 'tea party' or 'patriot' in their name."

Reporter Tom Costello of NBC News: "OK. Sorry. Thank you for the clarification. But that would be a quarter of the 300 then so we are talking 75 or so?"

Lerner: "That's correct. Is that a quarter? That's correct. Thank you. I'm not good at math."
