Lois Lerner at House Hearing: “I Am Very Proud of the Work I Have Done in Government” (Then Pleads the Fifth)

Lois Lerner, the director of the IRS division that singled out hundreds of conservative groups, told a House Committee today. “I am very proud of the work I have done in government.”

Then Lerner: 1.) Blamed her subordinates for the targeting scandal, 2.) Pleaded the Fifth Amendment, and 3.) Left the room.

For Twenty-Seven months the Obama IRS refused to approve any Tea Party applications for tax-exempt status. At the same time the Obama IRS approved dozens of progressive applications. 500 conservative and Christian groups were illegally targeted by the Obama IRS.

Lois Lerner has a history of harassment and inappropriate religious inquiries.
