Biggest Scandal of this administration going completely unnoticed while right out in front of us...

The past several years have been filled with scandal after scandal...

Fast and Furious
The new Black Panthers
James Rosen Investigation
Spying on AP Reporters
NSA Spying
IRS Targeting
VA Waitlist

But the biggest scandal of all is what all of these have in common.
1) They all have overwhelming evidence of wrongdoing
2) In all cases, no one has gone to jail or been punished.

Sure, congress has put on a good show by dragging the people involved into the chamber to scold them and make threats, but in the end they all turned out the same. No one was punished.
