The House of Representatives voted Wednesday to hold a former Internal Revenue Service official in contempt of Congress for refusing to cooperate with an ongoing investigation into the agency's special targeting of groups with tea party or patriot in their names that were seeking tax-exempt status.

Easy answer is Putin. But none of them have dared accuse him of “hatred of a black man”.
I can hear the liberal howling now...
When does the Capital Police SWAT Team enforce the order??

She always wanted to see Ft. Marcy Park ...
If you’re a baseball player rumored to have taken steroids, you’ll be under the kleig lights for over one year.
A single loose, foolish statement in a private phone call, and you can lose a basketball team.
But if you steal an election an terrorize people purely for political reasons, then you might get off, Scott-free.
At the very least you can show up, make a long, high-handed defensive statement, and then turn around and plead the fifth.
Following the law is just for the Little People?
We shall see.
Don't get me wrong, I fully expect them to try. Hypocrisy is not a problem for Democrats.
Barber, Barrow (GA), McIntyre, Murphy (FL), Peterson, and Rahall are the dims voting for it.
Pretty much. Until Blubbering Boehner is replaced nothing will happen.
Anyone think Holder will prosecute?
About damn time. Now what?
Oh-oh-oh-oh, boy is she in deep doo-doo now.
Holder will not prosecute her unless he loses on purpose
I forgot the /s
I thought so
I just nuked it from orbit to be sure
Oh wow, I’ll just bet Lois and the Dems are shaking in their boots! Not!
Boehner is probably already in the fetal position.
Sorry, but not one thing is going to happen, and the Dems know it!
