All of Obama's goons are starting to screw up all at the same time. For those that refuse to talk - should spend time in jail.

She'll be ok, her salary pension and bennies are well protected, they just took her out of the public eye, they look after each other nicely. Don't fret for her.

On June 29, 2011, Lois G. Lerner, who heads the IRS division that oversees tax-exempt organizations, learned at a meeting that groups were being targeted, according to a draft of the report by the Treasury inspector general for tax administration.

`In her defense, she did tell those in the meeting to halt the process of selective selection. The of course didn't since the answer to a higher power in the White House.

Oh, she was so smart, so much smarter then Issa. Once she made that opening statement she obligated herself to cross examination. Now she must come back, she cannot plead the 5th this time, and she is still under oath. She can lie for Obama, or she can tell the truth, and we will know who ordered her to spy on Conservatives, and their groups. I don't get it. These Obama Democrats seem to be dumber then other Democrats. Are they all Affirmative Action people?

Nazi approach, eh?

NO member of this administration spends a DAY in jail until Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld and their henchmen are tried on charges related to their wars in the Middle East, torture, lying to the American people, and unConstitutional spying.

Not one DAY, motherf----s.

Issa is a thug with a criminal past, his only "smarts" are the street smarts of a salesman or carjacker.

Nice racist flourish at the end of your post too, you disgusting pig.

Easy there purfessor. Let's compromise and convict those IN office first, then we'll go after all past office holders. I'm doing it, but I'm not guilty because Bush did it will be an interesting defense.

....and the GOP TEA Birther assault on Women continue.

Lerner was just doing her job to increase scrutiny of political organizations seeking tax-exempt statuses when that political organization is AGAINST PAYING TAXES.

In the corporate world, that would be a red flag worthy of further investigation. If I had an employee who admits to not wanting to report all their tips, I would more closely scrutinize them.

Time in jail? I don't think so.

All Obama has to do is issue one of those Scooter
Libby Get-Out-of-Jail-Free cards and she's off the hook.

So simple I can't understand why none of the tea party
morons on this forum haven't thought of it.

Oh, I know. Scooter Libby? Never heard of him.

If Lerner is being fired for questioning/scrutinizing organizations seeking tax-exempt status to avoid paying taxes...

Then McCain should be fired for scrutinizing Apple for their tax avoidance strategies.

Or is is because McCain is a man that the GOP TEA Birthers aren't targeting him. They are both essentially doing the same thing.
