Top IRS Official Lois Lerner Quits and Gets to Keep Her Six Figure Pension … VIDEO of Varney & Bozell Discussing No MSM Coverage of Scandals



The Washington Times is reporting that Lois Lerner, the IRS official at the heart of the IRS scandal that targeted conservative non-profit groups and the Tea Party has quit. Basically, Lerner read the “Tea” leaves and quit before she was fired. In the process of her voluntary departure prior to facing the fire, Lerner will get her full tax payer paid 6 figure pension. So the question remains, what does this woman have to hide and why is she willing to get out of Dodge in order to attempt to do so? Lerner has been on administrative leave for months, with pay of course.

So will “We the People” get stuck for paying this woman’s pension when most likely she should be charged criminally for her actions and abuse of power?

Lois G. Lerner, the woman at the center of the IRS tea party targeting scandal, retired from the agency Monday morning after an internal investigation found she was guilty of “neglect of duties” and was going to call for her ouster, according to congressional staff.

Her departure marks the first government official to pay a significant price in the scandal, though Republicans were quick to say her decision doesn’t put the matter to rest and pointed out that she still can be called before Congress to testify.

The Internal Revenue Service confirmed Ms. Lerner’s retirement in a statement but said it couldn’t release any more information because of privacy concerns.

Rep. Sander M. Levin of Michigan, the ranking Democrat on the HouseWays and Means Committee, said an accountability review board set up to investigate the people at the agency involved with the scandal completed their review and were set to recommend Ms. Lerner’s ouster. The review board, though, found no evidence of political bias, he said.

More from The Heritage Foundation.

Regardless of what happens to Lerner, who is entitled to a presumption of innocence, it is vital that Congress continue to investigate this matter to find out exactly what happened at the IRS. The IRS is one of the most powerful agencies in the federal government. Its bureaucrats have the ability to devastate and ruin the lives, businesses, and prosperity of every American—as well as the membership associations that form a fundamental part of our body politic and through which citizens assert their views and opinions.

We should not forget the danger posed by an out-of-control and abusive IRS. We should determine why this happened, who authorized it, and what steps need to be taken to make sure it does not happen again.

From News Busters, Stuart Varney and Brent Bozell discuss the MSM completely ignoring the IRS scandals since July and in turn providing cover for the Obama White House.

We see the revelation that IRS culprits gave themselves or got promotions. We saw the evidence that they are in fact going after the Tea Party. We saw the evidence that came out that Lois Lerner,  who plead the Fifth and who has suggested that it was the Cincinnati operatives who were responsible for this, in fact  had emails saying, don’t give it to them, give it to higher ups.

We have evidence that they were illegally obtaining donor files and then promising to destroy them while keeping them. We’ve now learned that they were going after tax-exempt organizations who mentioned ObamaCare. This is how bad it’s gotten

      They ( government VIP ) have put themselves above the law and are not under the same laws and rules they make for us like health care or even telling the truth before congress. America, Home of the truly Brave but land of the stupid! It maybe too late to change it. Government deception is the norm. They will NOT follow the oath they swore to on the Holy Bible! We dont have a clue how bad it really is and I suspect we havent seen anything yet.

    2. House Votes To Hold IRS Official Lois Lerner in Contempt of Congress in IRS Targeting Tea Party Scandal | Scared Monkeys on May 8th, 2014 6:54 am

      [...] The House of Representatives voted to hold IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress by a 231 to  187 vote. Lerner has invoked her 5th Amendment rights against self-incrimination not once, but twice at Congressional hearings. Many believe that Lerner waived her 5th Amendment rights by testifying in front of a Congressional hearing by making an opening statement and then going silent. The matter will now be referred to the U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia and the contempt charge will then be referred to a grand jury. However, it is unknown how the Eric Holder Justice Department will proceed, if at all. If ever convicted, Lerner could face between one and 12 months in jail and a fine of up to $100,000. Lois Lerner has since left the IRS, but not without being able to keep her whopping six figure pension. [...]
