An Internal Revenue Service agent who testified about taxpayer abuse to a Senate committee has filed a discrimination lawsuit against the agency and her supervisor, her attorney said. The lawsuit, filed in federal court, charges that Jennifer Long, who is white, was the victim of racial and age discrimination by her boss, who is black. Among the allegations in the suit are that "her supervisor screamed at her and called her a lazy, stupid liar."

I feel that putting Pelliccia away is ludicrous ! If a man has served the past 28 years working and abiding by the law in the state of California, it's a crime to be extradited for something that happened 41 years ago. Personally I don't want my tax dollars being wasted on such nonsense. I feel that instead of wasting and ruining the rest of a man's life, the law should really be out catching the real criminals--the ones who rape, murder and abuse society and innocent people--not a man who helps society.

UC San Diego defeated host Calvin College, 15-4, 10-15, 3-15, 15-3, 15-5, Saturday to win its third NCAA Division III volleyball championship. "We did it with good, old California ball-handling and good, steady team play," UCSD Coach Doug Dannevik said. A crowd of 3,300 watched Calvin get to within one game of the championship, only to be stopped by back-to-back, one-sided defeats. "We didn't pass the ball well in the second and third games," Dannevik said.

Cary Crouch told his Laguna Hills softball players to leave their Southern Section championship paraphernalia at home. No more reminders of the past because the future was slipping away. "We thought, because we won last year, we would win this year without performing," Crouch said Tuesday. "This team needed to develop its own identity and stop living off the past."

Disputing its own years of positive job ratings, the IRS now says in court documents that a revenue agent who testified before Congress about taxpayer abuse had actually done inferior work since 1991. The Houston-based agent, Jennifer Long, responded with two sworn statements from current and former Internal Revenue Service employees who say they have suffered retaliation because of their testimony before the Senate Finance Committee.
