[ EDITOR'S NOTE : The following testimony by IRS Inspector Furbish before MSPB judge Nina Puglia
in 1996 sheds considerable light on the quality and integrity of the IRS Inspection Service, of lawyers employed by IRS and of MSPB judges.Before giving his
testimony, Inspector Furbish was coached and prepped extensively by IRS lawyer Michael Salyards.This transcript of the MSPB hearing tapes was kindly provided by the Wall Street Journal. ].Judge Puglia
: Could you please step up to the witness stand? Please remain standing, and raise your right hand.Do you solemnly swear that the testimony you be about to give will be the the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, so help you God.
: The first thing I need you to do is to state your full name and spell it for the record.
: do you have a GS level.
The Furbishes of IRS are molded and sculpted by shyster IRS lawyers like Michael Salyards, and by corrupt Federal judges like Nina Puglia
