Off topic, but too good not to share
IRS targeting conservative groups: Dept of Justice staffer calls staff of Comm. on Gov't Oversight to ask if they could help leak some documents to the press before the documents were released to the committee. Then the staffer realizes that he has mistakenly called Rep. Issa's staff, not that of the ranking minority member.
That does happen. I remember one case that never made the media, where person X is conniving against person Y (who holds a high executive office). X calls an ally (another person who holds high office in the same department), is told that ally is not in the office, and gives the ally's secretary a detailed list of his plans to get Y fired with the aid of the ally.
Problem: the ally was not only out of the office, so was his secretary. To fill the gap, Y had volunteered that his secretary could take the ally's calls. So all the plot against Y had just been detailed to Y's loyal secretary. Who, I am sure, made good notes.
