Doug Shulman's Highly Partisan Wife

This post from yesterday reported that Susan Anderson -- wife of former IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman -- works for Public Campaign, a lefty-seeming group that denied it was lefty.

Well, whatever the overall politics of Public Campaign, there is no doubt that Susan Anderson herself is lefty . . . and occasionally vitriolic about it.  A cursory inspection of her twitter feed reveals cordial correspondence with peeps like Katrina vanden Heuvel of The Nation, a retweet of an NAACP leader's slam on "Koch brothers' money," a retweet of someone begging Harry Reid for "filibuster reform," criticism of Bob McDonnell for "blocking women's access to health care" and her own snarky speculation that "GOP pines for Old Europe after all."

Here's a particularly pleasant offering. Twitchy has documented some of her more annoying, highly partisan tweets -- a complete list here

Admittedly, Ms. Anderson's politics may not be Mr. Shulman's . . . but her twitter feed is indicative of the atmosphere that filled the IRS commissioner's home at the time conservatives were routinely being targeted by the agency he headed.

Interestingly, Ms. Anderson stopped tweeting in early May, about the time when the IRS investigation started to heat up.  Coincidence? You decide.
