House Takes Action Against Lois Lerner

Hopefully, this week will mark the start of holding former IRS official Lois Lerner accountable for her suspected role in an IRS scandal involving the harassment of Tea Party organizations.

The two committees in the House of Representatives are planning action targeting Lerner.

The Republican led House is frustrated over Lerner’s refusal to answer questions about her actions while she was at the IRS section that had oversight over nonprofit groups.

From Politico:

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is on track to hold Lerner in contempt of Congress while the Ways and Means Committee plans to formally ask the Department of Justice to open a criminal investigation against Lerner.

A House aide with knowledge of the Ways and Means vote said the committee has centered on three actions by Lerner that “may have violated one/more criminal statutes.”

The committee will accuse Lerner of “improperly” influencing the IRS to take action against conservative organizations, a charge Republicans will argue is a violation of the groups’ constitutional rights. The committee’s Republicans are also accusing Lerner of impeding the inspector general who uncovered the tea party targeting and exposing taxpayer information.

The House must hold Lerner accountable.

Meaningful action against Lerner would send a powerful message to government bureaucrats that there’s a price to pay if they abuse power.
