All this right-wing howling is just muddying up the waters making it more difficult to see the truth.

It's true that we don't want this to devolve into a partisan food fight. Of course there will always be politics involved, Washington being a political town. However, it's not just the right wing that is concerned. For example, two Dem reps are calling for the resignation of Lerner:

Crowley, Levin Seek Ouster of IRS Official Who Planted Question on Scandal
www.nydailynews.com/blogs/dc/2013/05/crowley-levin-seek-oust...
Reps. Joe Crowley (D-Queens) and Sander Levin (D-Mich), top Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee, on Friday demanded the resignation of Lois Lerner, head of the IRS division overseeing tax-exempt organizations....But she faces fire for failing to tell Congress about the problem. She did not mention it at hearing held just two days before she apparently used a planted question at a American Bar Association event to try to control news of the scandal. Lerner arranged for Celia Roady [a lobbyist] a partner in law firm Morgan Lewis & Bockius' Washington office, who sits on an IRS Advisory Committee on Tax-Exempt and Government Entities, to ask a question during a panel discussion, Miller said.

Chris Matthews on MSNBC talked with Dem Rep Levin of Michigan who was quite unhappy and called it a 'culture of coverup'. Matthews himself said about Miller
"...it’s like he didn’t see what he knew people certainly right, left and center could see, that when you target particular groups, you’re targeting particular groups. I mean, if this were on the other foot, and this was a George W. administration, they were targeting groups that were calling themselves progressives, I would say it’s prima facie evidence of targeting. I don’t think it’s complicated."
