The House of Representatives will vote in May on whether to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt for her role in the agency's targeting of conservative groups, according to a memo released Friday by House Republicans.

Someone must have waked up the members of the House finally.
May? Gosh, ya think they might be able to get there, such short notice and all that...Sheesh.
So what will be the consequences of her still not talking? Jail?? And will Obama free her anyway?? Of course.
That vote should have taken all of 15 minutes after Lois Lerner, after once first agreeing to supply some information to the inquiry, then clammed up and refused to testify further, claiming the 5th Amendment then protected her.
But I suppose that now, these things must be done - “delicately”.
Why wait, throw the bitch in jail!
All I know is that my congressman had damned well better vote that day and he damned well better vote for contempt. He has a challenger in the upcoming primary here on May 20th.
Because the EXEMPT Congress and their EXEMPT Staff
really do not care .... except about themselves.
Hell...Clinton was impeached...and walked away from it.
Well, yes. That was a process that required both the House (indictment) and Senate (trial). It failed because our Senators have no honor or allegiance to the people any more.
If I understand the contempt process correctly, the House has the power of voting contempt, AND they have the power to jail that b!tch - at least for the rest of the current session. In my mind, if they do not do this, then it won’t matter how many more seats Republicans win, or whether they win the Senate, too. Just rats of another color, really.
Jeebus — why not wait until the first anniversary of her invoking the 5th amendment. Hell, why this decade even?
I can count the number of congress critters I respect on the fingers of one cartoon character’s hand. (Ever bother to count the fingers on most cartoon characters hands?)

Timing is a part of the program. Events are being scheduled to cause maximum damage to Obama and achieve maximum election gains in November.
Recall that the Republicans do not control the propaganda organs and must also create a situation that can not be ignored. Most Americans don’t know who she is or the magnitude of her crimes.
When the death penalty or some such is mentioned for her crimes against the Republic, the S@#$ will hit the fan and blow across the country
Nothing can remove the stench of this Congress from their rolling of the American people. At least my sriracha sauce may have stunk to make it, but it has consistency and far better flavor than this Congress will ever have guts.
“Issa and 16 other Republican lawmakers are asking Attorney General Eric Holder to produce documents and to make Pilger available for an interview.”
I also do not understand this statement from the article. What does it mean when the Committee asks the Attorney General to make Pilger available for an interview? Can't the Committee subpoena him?
Yeah, a contempt of Congress charge...that’ll show her. Just look what it did to Eric Holder. Oh yeah, that’s right NOTHING!
Stop dawdling, already! This vowman should already be in prison, along with Holder, 0bama, and VJ, Hitlery, and JF’nKerry.
I bet she is shaking in her boots.
Such BLINDING SPEED!
Ya’d think they were in a hurry, or something, ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.
