Lois Lerner: Contempt Vote Would Be ‘Un-American’
The DC ^ | April 28 2014 | Patrick Howley

Posted on 04/28/2014 3:01:24 PM PDT by PoloSec

Ex-IRS official Lois Lerner’s attorney said that a vote to hold her in contempt would be “un-American.” Lerner’s lawyer Bill Taylor wrote in a letter to House Speaker John Boehner and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor that a contempt vote would be “unfair, and indeed, un-American.”

No doubt Boehner will agree with Lerner's lawyer, maybe I'm just too skeptical.

No doubt Bonehead will agree as it only affects the Tea Party or other conservative groups.

Meanwhile, I believe what she did to the american political process is more than just unamerican, it is blasted treasonous. No she should not be held in contempt, she should be hung as an enemy of the state.

Lerner’s ilk always use the line that the people they hate and are attacking would be violating their own principles if they fought back or defended themselves.

“Lerner’s lawyer Bill Taylor wrote..... that a contempt vote would be “unfair, and indeed, un-American.”

But deliberate targeting of conservative groups by the Lerner and the IRS, that’s American!!

Of course Bonehead and Cantor will cancel the vote at Lerner’s
demand.

“Lerner’s lawyer Bill Taylor wrote..... that a contempt vote would be “unfair, and indeed, un-American.”

So to flip this logic on it's head, it fair and American to target Tea Party organizations

Gotcha... I wonder if these people actually think about what they are saying before they open their yaps

I’m no lawyer but, if “Bonehead” votes agains’t the contempt charges wouldn’t he be assumed to be agreeing with the conspiracy and subject to also be charged as supporting the act?

They should return the note to her and her lawyer offering a plea bargain. Say, that if she names those in the administration involved in this, that her sentence be limited to 10 years in a federal penitentiary.

What’s un-American is this bitch think she deserves to live in America.

What’s un-American is an agency such as the IRS.

ESAD BITCH!

"Un-American" means holding her accountable for "governing while Democrat."

Only Republicans are held accountable for their actions.
