Original title:GOP Congressman: We Just Filed a Resolution Directing the Sergeant-at-Arms to Arrest Lois Lerner for Contempt
Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) announced on Thursday that he has filed a resolution directing the House sergeant-at-arms to arrest Lois Lerner for contempt of Congress over the IRS targeting scandal.
Stockman said in a statement that asking the U.S. Department of Justice to prosecute Lerner for admittedly illegal activity is a joke. Instead, the Republican said it is up to the U.S. House to uphold the rule of law and hold accountable those who illegally targeted American citizens for simply having different ideas than the President.
Under the proposed resolution, Lerner would be held in a Washington, D.C., jail and would be given access to an attorney and all her constitutional rights.

Good! Now do the same for Holder. He is in Contempt as well.
Obama will assign Secret Service protection to her, like he did to Valerie Jarrett.
Great idea, but they’ll never do it.
It’s too late. She will offer nothing.
OH boy!! we were just thrown a “Beggin’ Strip” Now we bring the slippers and paper.
“Its too late. She will offer nothing.”
Maybe so, but at least the bitch would be in jail (at least until Obama figures out a way to “pardon” her).
I’ll bet there had to be a lot of wet pants before this was fired off...
Does anyone here know exactly what the jurisdiction of the Sergeant-at-Arms of the House is? From what I have seen from a quick search it seems to be either a subset of the capitol police or perhaps congruent with the capitol police jurisdiction.
I am wondering whether the house Sergeant-at-Arms has any real ability to arrest Lerner if she is physically located outside that jurisdiction.
Also, now that Lerner is officially retired, can the House compel her to appear before a congressional committee, whether she would again invoke the 5th amendment or not?
Talk is cheap. . . “a lot” too late!
I agree with the Yawn, and with a little too late.
I meant a lot too late.
C'mon, you bunch of useless Congressional lumps, enough jerking around. Either pull the metaphorical trigger or go home--we're tired of your cheap talk!
