The IRS, Resignations, and Lois Lerner
Posted by madjillmom on May 22, 2013
Today, Lois Lerner pleaded the 5th before the House Committee. Jay Carney was asked why she still has a job. Carney says the President thinks it is better to get to the bottom of the facts before firing people. What changed since last week? Last week, the President was “outraged” and demanded the resignation of the Acting head of the IRS. He didn’t know the facts last week either. After all, he just learned about the scandal the Friday before. He made the stupid head of the IRS a sacrificial lamb without knowledge of who, what, or why on this IRS scandal. He fired a guy two weeks before that guy was leaving anyway. Oh, but this week, he can’t do anything without all the facts. Get your stories straight, Jay and Barack.
Could Lois Lerner have more info that can’t come out? Is she guaranteed a paycheck as long as she keeps her mouth shut? Or is she the newest sacrificial lamb turning on the spit, basting while the White House gets it act together?
