It seems like only yesterday that IRS Director of Exempt Organizations Lois Lerner was claiming she knew nothing about the dastardly work of those shadowy "low-level employees in the Cincinnati office" - who somehow remain shadowy to this day, despite having been blamed for the worst abuse-of-power scandal in living memory. The Incompetence Defense beloved of this administration, and so effective with a media that would never accept it from a Republican official, was deployed with gusto. Lerner was shocked, shocked, to discover gambling against Tea Party groups going on at Rick's Tax Exempt Organizations Cafe American.

What a smug look...
She’s an evil ho.
Civil Rights violation?
She will never be prosecuted by this injustice department. Each affected group should sue her personally in series. Bankrupt her, then the next group up should commence its suit, and then the next, and then the next. Make the rest of her life a continuing hell.
She could always use Hillary’s autopen defense. Then do time in an autopenitentiary.
> What a smug look...
The same ones you see on every liberal US GOV employees involved in scandals, trying to take your guns, or infringe on your constitutional rights nowadays (0, Reid, Pelosi, Feinstein, Boxer, and now Lerner for starters)
Is there more than one person who can fire her? If so, who are they? Someone has to have the stones to set this right and show what happens when there is such manifest abuse of power.
If I am not mistaken, even lefty Alan Dershowitz has said that she can be held in contempt...
At HotAir there is an article: “Alan Dershowitz: Issa’s Right, Lerner Waived Her Right Against Self-Incrimination, And Should Be Required To Answer Questions”
Oh Oh this cant be true....But now we have to connect the dots back to the White House. I wonder if this person BOB BAUER White House General Counsel that was written about in yesterdays WSJ by Has anything to do with the IRS Scandal.
Bob Bauer, the Obama campaign (and later White House) general counsel, wrote letters to the Department of Justice in August 2008 attacking a conservative 501(c)4 called the American Issues Project for running an ad that highlighted Obamas connection to former Weather Underground terrorist Bill Ayers.

That same month, a left-wing activist created a 501(c)4 called Accountable America that was designed to intimidate GOP donors.
try her and then put her in prison.
In her mind, she did nothing wrong. Same in Obama’s mind.
Lois is already under the bus. She is in it up to her neck. But two people were skipped in the chain of command.
Both above Lois Lerner.
Sarah Ingram-Commissioner of TEGE, now Commissioner of Obamacare at the IRS.
Bob Grant-deputy commissioner of TEGE, then commissioner, then retired.
Why were these two skipped by House Oversight?
Today’s Friday News Dump.
It will be interesting to see what’s coming next.
Everything is for the good of the regime (infidel).
Does Leavenworth have a Ladies Department?
