None So Blind as Those Who Will Not See

In this case they may be one and the same: Unfortunate Metaphor Alert: IRS Assigns Blind Worker To Lerner Case
An explosive revelation from J. Christian Adams:
An IRS employee tasked with trying to restore and obtain emails on Lois Lerner’s IRS computer’s hard drive was legally blind. Stephen Manning, the deputy chief information officer for strategy and modernization at the IRS, submitted an affidavit in the True the Vote vs. IRS litigation regarding the persons and procedures used to attempt to recover Lois Lerner’s hard drive containing emails pertaining to Tea Party targeting.
The affidavit can be read here. Paragraph 14 describes the educational background of the person searching for data on Lois Lerner’s hard drive:
Now, somebody I know is going blind, and it’s not a pleasant thing. So stipulate that we’re not piling on somebody doing their job. Somebody has to do it. Stevens, Smith, Doherty & Woods are unavailable.

However, it strikes me that, if you had an interest in rebuilding an organization’s credibility, there are better means than this to do it.
It can't help but slow the search, and that's what's important, after all.
