This Is How We Get Congress To Arrest Lois Lerner

Lois Lerner, one-time head of the IRS’ tax-exempt division, has become the central figure in an ongoing scandal. In an administration with no shortage of controversy, the IRS debacle has possibly been the most contentious of Obama’s presidency.

There is no question that conservative groups received undue scrutiny from Lerner’s department in the months leading up to the 2012 presidential election. Even though she initially declared her innocence in the developing scandal, Lerner has since invoked her Fifth Amendment right to avoid self-incrimination as evidence mounted against her.

Sign the Petition to Arrest Lois Lerner!

Rep. Darrell Issa has devoted much of his time as chairman of the House Oversight Committee to getting the truth out of Lerner in order to find out exactly where the order to target conservative originated. Much to his disappointment, however, Lerner has continually stonewalled the congressional investigation by remaining tight-lipped in the face of direct questioning.

Her actions are now starting to catch up with her. Issa’s committee voted to hold her in contempt of Congress during the same week that the House Ways and Means Committee prepared criminal charges against her. Unfortunately, the ultimate enforcement of the law will fall on Attorney General Eric Holder, who has proven time and again he values partisanship over his duties at the helm of the Justice Department.

Even if Eric Holder refuses to do his duty, however, Congress can actually make the arrest themselves. According to the Washington Examiner:

Among those tools is the House’s “inherent contempt” authority under the Constitution, which was initially exercised in 1795 during the First Congress and on multiple occasions thereafter. Lerner could be held until January 2015 when a new Congress is seated, which could issue another subpoena and throw her in the clink again if she still balks at testifying.

In order to send a clear message that her behavior is intolerable, and is a step towards tyranny, the call to throw Lerner in jail is becoming more popular by the day. Arresting Lerner might be just a small step in clearing out the corruption in D.C.; but it is at least a step in the right direction.

If you agree that it is time for Lerner to face justice for her outrageous obstruction, add your name to this petition.

  1. i agree a lot with oblama needing impeached, and the our politician as a whole are very corrupt, and we really need a government of the people, by the people, and for the people instead of the power elite. i am willing to sigh petitions and such, but i do not see any real tangible results taking place for all i have sign. anyways, i do not like being on mailing list and CONSTANTLY RECEIVING ENDLESS MAILINGS and i want you to stop mailing stuff. i receive upwards of twenty pieces of mail, just because i sign one online petition. that's ridiculous. you don't need my damn address, so quit requiring it to sign your damn petition. I DON'T WANT YOUR MAIL. GET IT!!!

  2. I am tired of all the talk —– JUST ARREST LOERNER

    Lois Lerner & anyone else involved in this scandal needs to pass go & immediately progress on to jail! She needs to be punished, as do other involved in this debacle, including the current occupant of the Oval Office!

  4. Edwardkoziol says:

    Lois"Pignose"Lerner is as guilty as they come but she has Cummings backing her up.Now we find out that Cummings and Lerner were involved in this scandal.I want to see Lerner go to jail but I want to know who told her what to do like the tarbaby who said there is no smidgen of evidence.The reason Obumhole said that because it will be traced back to him and his Chicago type politics.

  5. Louis Prima says:

    Lois needs to spend some time working in the laundry room of the Women's Correctional Facility in VA,maybe then her tongue will loosen. She'll also be protected from Obama's thugs and hopefully safe from having an unfortunate "accident" although having a "roommate" like Big Sue likely won't be all that much fun either.
    That cushy big government pension needs to be cancelled too.

  6. We all know this corrupt administration especially Holder will NOT corporate, if congress can have her arrested, then do so. This woman is NOT above the law and needs to be made an example of, throw her azz in prison, hurry up and just do it!!!

  7. MuslimLuvChrist says:

    “inherent contempt” is enacted only if holder takes no action and sits on it, which is what he is famous for! how long does holder need to wait before they can arrest her? He will wait for the next congress.
    Jail Lerner, Jail Cummings, Jail Holder, Impeach obama, and abolish the IRS for a fair/flat tax!!!

    • Hi MuslimluvChrist
      I agree with you, that would be a dream come true, arrest all of these criminals and abolish the IRS and replace it with a fair/flat tax

  8. Louis Schroeder says:

    When our countries leaders pick and choose what laws to enforce and Justice's blindfold is replaced with blinders; we have abolished law and justice not racism. God bless America and god dam it's sheep clothed enemies!
