It appears that former IRS official Lois Lerner’s problems have just begun. Lerner is accused of improperly using her power to target conservative groups for tax investigations. Ironically, she now refuses to co-operate with Congress’ investigation into her actions. Politico reports,
“In an extremely rare, closed-door Ways and Means mark-up, the panel voted 23-14 along party lines to send a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder, requesting he take the former head of the IRS tax exempt division to court — though the Department already has an ongoing investigation.
“House Republicans want her charged for improperly influencing the IRS to take action against conservative organizations, disclosing confidential taxpayer info, a felony; and impeding an investigation.”
