Everybody's favorite IRS agent Lois Lerner has been officially held in Contempt of Congress !!

The U.S. House of Representatives voted 231-187 in favor.

Now maybe She makes that golden deal and comes clean and names names.

Can't for the "UN-zipping" ceremonies to begin.



The House of Representatives voted Wednesday to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress for refusing to testify about the agency’s targeting of conservative groups.

The House voted 231-187 for a resolution holding Lerner in contempt.

Lerner’s case will now be sent to the Justice Department, which then must decide whether to essentially prosecute Lerner in the case.

Yeah well I'm not going to hold my breath for that to ever happen. Eric Holder is as dirty as Lerner is and these criminals will support each other at all costs. Nice gesture though.

Now it gets passed to The Injustice Department.
Not holding my breath, at least they have taken this step!

I think they should rename the "Justice Department".

Just call it what it is...

"Just-ice Department"

Toobin: “And how long are you going to be the Attorney General? You mentioned ‘as long as I’m Attorney General’…”

Holder: “Well, you know, I’ve still got things I want to do. I mean, I’ve got this fight, this criminal justice reform stuff that I talked about, I guess, in August at the ABA. I’ve got financial cases I’m still working on. So I’m going to be here for a while.

Toobin: “Do you want to put any more specific - this is like journalism [101]… I have to ask all these questions. If you don’t want to tell me, don’t tell me. Like, do you know? A year? Two years?”

Holder: “I guess, I think what I’ve said is, I’m going to be here certainly into 2014.”

Toobin: “That’s a big commitment. It’s in like three weeks…”

Holder: “I think I’ve said, ‘well into 2014.’”

Toobin: “I see. ‘Well into’? OK, very good.”


I guess we now know why Holder couldn't pin down when he may step down...

He needed to know first how to Hide the rest of the scandals before he left.

Why do I get the feeling she will slip and bump her head and fall into her pool before anything ever comes to light.
Just a feeling I guess...

I she were ever actually held to any charges and imprisoned a certain president would surely give her a pardon, as well as Holder...that's the real problem...but I do applaud the house.

Jhn I'm with you 166.6% on this one... there's everything crossed over here
for good luck--- and a few items that would violate T&C as well.
As another guy from too close to the (Lake Like a OMG it's a *) I feel one
of the worst moves this country made was to let Chicago-style politics go
global. It's an obvious Charlie Foxtrot of near unfixable proportions now.

If Lois caves, there will be a sucking sound that will make the fallout from
Paul Voelker's Fed Chairmanship nothing worse than a flat Fanta.
Hey not bad for an old tool maker... if she holds up and takes the medicine
you KNOW she'll get the Scooter Libby Get Outa Free from OhBaby.

This voter suppression story will very likely get all the airplay and public
attention of John Dean's first 15 minutes on camera during the Watergates.
"Who?" Then people started watching during the afternoons...sigh I can hope

a reply to: xuenchen If the Justice Dept. happens to put on the show and prosecute, she'll just be pardoned by Obama. BTW, in the end, I believe Obama will pardon Holder for all of his misdeeds.

Being considered in contempt of congress is no big deal, ask Eric Holder, he is held in contempt for Fast and Furious,but like he said "You don't want to go there buddy!" The Just-Ice Dept (good term, thanks) will not prosecute her and I do not believe the congress can do anything further. The best case scenario would be the just-ice dept. would refer this to a grand jury to acquire depositions....one can only dream of justice anymore. My hope is the next administration will go back and prosecute all of these corrupt criminals......ahhh I'm dreaming again...sorry.

"Not a smidgen of corruption at the IRS" - BHO during O'Reilly Factor interview in 2013.

In the top three of his biggest lies.

Just saw this so maybe.. maybe there is some hope to putting this partisan scumbag behind bars without using the DOJ.

Deep in the recesses of congressional power — and in precedent stretching back to the 18th century — is the ability to pursue “inherent contempt” against individuals, including the right to imprison a person in the Capitol to compel compliance with lawmakers’ authority.

Congress hasn’t exercised inherent contempt power since 1935 and there’s no suggestion that lawmakers are actively considering the option in Lerner’s case.
In Showdown With Lerner, House Imprisonment Not Out of the Question

I really, really want to see this pathetic excuse for a public servant locked up. Then the rest of them.
