Email-storage contractor Sonasoft was providing “automatic data processing” services for the IRS throughout the January 2009 to April 2011 period in which Lerner sent her missing emails.
One would think Sonasoft maintains a backup for a period of time following cancellation with a firm, or in this case the IRS.
Sonasoft’s six-year business relationship with the IRS came to an abrupt halt at the close of fiscal year 2011, just as the congressional investigators began looking into the IRS conservative targeting scandal and IRS employees’ computers started crashing left and right.
Lerner’s computer allegedly crashed in June 2011, just ten days after House Ways and Means Committee chairman Rep. Dave Camp first wrote a letter asking if the IRS was engaging in targeting of nonprofit groups. Two months later, Sonasoft’s contract ended and the IRS gave its email-archiving contractor the boot.
Coincidentally, IRS official and frequent White House visitor Nikole Flax allegedly suffered her own computer crash in December 2011, three months after the IRS ended its relationship with Sonasoft.
