great. lerner and holder can wear “Contempt Club” T shirts now.
Good. I was hoping Boehner wouldn’t go wobbly again. That will come later, when she is clearly judged as guilty and deserving of swift punishment through the court system.
Bi-partisan vote, too! LOL!
A sacrificial lamb; better her than the Prez ...
I guess all those gleeful momemts of conspiring against the Tea Party groups and future discussions on how she was going to heap burning coals on their heads and ruin their lives didn’t work out like she planned it. And she thought the Prez had her back when he promised he would if she would just keep her mouth shut and not mention his involvement out of it. Well you got conned Lois...
When Boehner and crew had the chance to shut down Obamacare by funding everything except Obamacare, they folded and let the Democrats win the narrative.
This is a symbolic gesture at best.
Get back to me when they actually impeach someone or do something that stops Obama and his minions.
Is she under the building in the cell yet? If not WHY NOT?????
Was she handcuff and tossed into jail or will she be getting a phone call from Eric Holder who also was found in contempt where he will say to her “nothing to worry about, the republicans never follow up”
Which 8 Republican cowards didn’t vote and which 13 Democrats forgot how they were supposed to vote?
I’m hopeful that the tide is turning and that more actions will follow.
I pray that God will enlighten those who are misled and that they will see the danger in their choices.
And the dominos will fall...
Pelosi didn't vote? What the hell?
That’s not everybody voting. How many abstained?
I wish the rules would be changed for both Congress and the Senate that “abstaining from voting” will be removed, and you MUST vote for or against anything.
***UPDATE: SIX DEMS WHO VOTED FOR CONTEMPT*** House of Representatives vote to hold Lois Lerner in contempt
UPDATE: According to the Roll Call, there were 6 Democrats who voted for contempt and they are the following:
Ron Barber (D-AZ)
John Barrow (D-GA)
Mike McIntyre (D-NC)
Patrick Murphy (D-FL)
Collin Peterson (D-MN)
Nick Rahall (D-WV)
It has come to my attention that Eric Holder must recuse or face disbarment for conflict of interests. Because of this a grievance should be filed if he does not appoint independent counsel on that scum bag Lois Lerner. This is absolutely true. There is no gray line here, Holder is politically corrupt. I would petition Federal Judge Lambert to file the grievance in the ethics committee!!! This is dead on folks— Clinton was disbarred!! Lambert can also bar him from practice in his court as a sanction. Let’s fight!!
I like the way you think.
Times like this, I wish I went to law school.
Can I call ‘em, or what?!!!!
Good, now let’s see the House arrest her under ‘inherent contempt’ arrest powers.. I agree this is a witch hunt because Lerner is indeed An EVIL WITCH!!!!
Obama will respond by giving her a Medal of Freedom.
I especially appreciate Darrel Issa’s closing remarks. As for the Dems, they completely miss the mark. For political reasons they do not want to face the music. Have you ever noticed how it is always the Dems who squeal like stuck pigs in regard to partisanship? Hey, partisanship is necessary. It comes with the turf. Deal with it.
So says the partner in crime
Says the hypocrite who tried to strip the head of a taxpayers group of her rights.
Murphy’s the guy who stole the election from Allen West after West was gerrymandered. I don’t know if he has opposition this election or not.
Send the Capital Police SWAT team to serve the warrant.
It is what Obama would do to any of us.
“...A sacrificial lamb; better her than the Prez .”
Looks like the House is slowly working it’s way up to the top rung. First, WithHolder. Now, Lerner. How many more before it gets REAL interesting?
Now it’s time to strip Lerner of her freedom. Throw the bitch in jail and throw away the key.
Here’s to Cardinal Puff for the very last time, and,
We take away your birthday Miss Lerner! That is all.
I want Reid gone. In fact I hope it comes out that he’s been screwing the Mob out of millions for decades so he can see how thevrest of us feel.
