The Internal Revenue Service said Monday that Lois G. Lerner, the woman at the center of the tea party targeting scandal, has resigned from the agency though because of privacy rules it could say nothing more.

Ms. Lerner, who had been on paid administrative leave, was the director of the division that reviewed the applications for tax-exempt status from political groups over the past few years and that, according to an internal audit, gave extra scrutiny to tea party and other conservative groups.

She needs to spend her remaining decades on the public dole in the fed pen.

Federal Penitentiary is the only “retirement” she deserves.

Just because she retired doesn’t mean she’s exempt from prosecution. She waived the fifth...

What is the Fed statute of limitations for perjury?

What is the Fed statute of limitations for treason?

I know the answer to the second question, it was rhetorical.

She had to retire so Obama could be prepared to nominate her to the SCOTUS.

though because of privacy rules it could say nothing more

Oh Right.

Her privacy is Sacred.

The privacy of "teabaggers" and "right wing extremists" as she and her ilk refer to anyone to the right of Joe Stalin is entirely negotiable, and usually ignored.

“And how much does she gets in pension?”

I’m a fed retiree myself (Defense Dept., FAA) and based on her grade and likely years of service, I would guess somewhere in the neighborhood of 85K-95K/yr. An educated guess.

Now that she is no longer an IRS employee, I wonder if all the tea party groups she screwed can sue her?

And she though that she was going to get immunity in exchange for any cooperation. Looks more like the length of her sentencing will be based on any cooperation she can provide in nailing anyone at the White House.

Sheeesh, I can understand why she retired. With that kind of pension, I’d retire too. Why endure all the aggravation?

Now, what we really need is to make sure she doesn’t get to enjoy retirement for what she did. What about calling her back to the witness stand?

I don’t know if she can be sued for something she did in the course of her job. I think she could go to jail for it, though...

Why not. Obama’s administration has thrown her under the bus and stated that there actions were taken without their approval (i.e. that they didn't order her to treat conservative groups differently). It seems to me she went beyond the scope of her employment and as such is liable for her actions on a civil basis. Her defense would be that she was probably following orders. Someone needs to make her admit it.

The article states “Her departure marks the first person to pay a significant price in the scandal”.

I’ve no idea how old she is, but she’s no spring chicken that’s for sure. So, what is the ‘significant price’? I’m sure she has a comfortable federal pension. I suggest some jail time.

“Tea Party Scandal”?

No bias here...

The media has dropped any shred of appearing unbiased.

Lerner gets a full pension and likely escapes any punishment, just like anyone else involved in this “Tea Party Scandal”

Obama figures if he just stalls long enough on the other scandals, he will escape clean as well.

Hard to get any traction with a fully enabling and complicit media.

FUBO and your Tranny wife.

Let the civil lawsuits against her begin. Take every nickel she has ever earned and will earn in her retirement. I want to see her whoring in Detroit at the end of this.
