News of further email scandals this week continue to bruise the Obama administration, but this time it’s not associated with Hillary Clinton’s private server.

In a court filing from the IRS this week, it was acknowledged that ousted lead agent Lois Lerner maintained yet another email address for use in official IRS business.

It was learned that an account which carried the name ‘Toby Miles’ was used by Lerner in addition to her official IRS address and a personal address on her home computer.

The revelation opened another can of worms in the ongoing search for evidence in a FOIA suit brought by Judicial Watch which has already implicated the White House in a potential coverup for the targeting of conservative political groups.

It is expected that the inspector general for the IRS will pursue further investigation into this new address and the potential existence of others as a part of a broader search for evidence that the IRS has obstructed justice.

The news comes only a week after the agency admitted that the massive security breach earlier this Spring resulted in tens of thousands more instances of stolen tax information than previously believed.
