A day after she refused to answer questions at a congressional hearing, Lois Lerner was placed on administrative leave, according to congressional sources. Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, a senior Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, said Lerner was asked to resign but refused, so she was placed on leave.

Yes!

Administrative Leave ... with pay. Bull Hockey!

But as we’ve seen even fired employees of the IRS still get paid.

I’m sure the Hoe is on paid leave. I want to see her put in prison!

As for replacing her all they have done is put another corrupt liberal in her place. The entire IRS needs to be cleaned and fumigated.

Good point. Not surprising, though, considering the AP is part of the leftist movement.

They’ll put her on leave until “everything cools down” and then promote her and give her all her “back pay” with interest. “It’s good to be the king!”

This won’t do, the well has been poisoned. IRS needs to be shut down, period. FairTax will work.

It would still be a good question to ask if she ever reappears before Congress.

What’s with this weird pretense in American business and gummint of asking execs to resign when they should be fired, and if they refuse then still not firing them?

She needs to go to jail. I pray they find the evidence to throw the whole bunch, including obama, in jail for a long long time.

How can anyone call what’s going on here a “tea party controversy”?

It’s a scandal, fed by liberalism and led by the Democratic Party.

Bipartisan outrage and support for the extermination of IRS...which was going to administer obamacare. Whole new system to be created from the ashes, during Obama’s regime. Hmm. Almost feels like a set-up.

The IRS needs to be abolished -

along with the income tax and public employee unions.

There was no “secret signal” for the FBI, OSHA, the BATF, and the IRS to target a single person for “increased scrutiny”.

The order came from someone who has power over ALL the executive agencies.

It'll be interesting tracking this meme back to the source. Or sources...

What kind of group or groups would benefit from sowing distrust in this country against it's most patriotic citizens? Democrats are one group that would benefit from creating an atmosphere of 'hatred for conservatives' but who else?

There's major money and thought behind this scam and many many useful idiots involved...
