BREAKING: House Votes To Hold Lerner In Contempt

According to reports Wednesday, six Democrats joined Republicans in the U.S. House in voting to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress.

Throughout much of the past year, she has refused to testify as part of the ongoing investigation into claims of unwarranted targeting of conservative groups by IRS agents under her command.

Though she has repeatedly attempted to invoke her Fifth Amendment right to avoid self-incrimination, Republicans in the House contend she waived those rights when she initially claimed she played no role in the scandal.

“The contempt of the U.S. House of Representatives is a serious matter, and one we take only when duly warranted,” said House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. “There are few government abuses more serious than using the IRS to punish American citizens for their political beliefs.”

In a separate vote Wednesday, Republicans led a successful vote to compel Attorney General Eric Holder to select a special prosecutor for the IRS investigation.

    To compel AG Eric Holder to select a special prosecutor for the IRS investigation. Wha!!????? knowing what a corrupt AG is, do you really think this man has any honor? I think NOT!!!! Oh wait, maybe he will rat out the Bitch just to save his azz but in the mean time he may not, who knows we just have to wait and see

    This is like letting the Fox guard the Hen House, I hope he does throws the bitch Lois Lerner under the bus just to score some points becasue he knows he is going to need it in the near future, after all there is No Honor among thieves and corrupt politicians

      Your right Linda who in their right mind would believe that Holder the muslim boot would appoint someone to go after Lerner.I'm surprized that Obutthole hasn't given her some kind of immunity.Holder is a total flunkie crybaby who uses the racist card if you come after him.

    and Boehner, as we all knew, did not put her in the hoosegow himself, which he has all the right in the world to do. Expecting Holder to put this criminal in jail is like expecting pigs to fly. That's how stupid they think you are. It is my sincere hope taht the May 16th American Spring becomes an Arrest Fest, and they arrest and perp walk every damn bastard and bitch in the entire federal crimocracy, but I'm afraid it will be just another exercise in futility like all of the rest except Bunkerville. Criminals only respond to guns-n-bullets.

Speak Your Mind
