House Panel Votes To Hold Ex-IRS Officer In Contempt

by Wochit 0:44 mins

House of Representatives panel voted along party lines on Thursday to hold a former Internal Revenue Service officer in contempt of Congress over her role in a 2013 controversy involving IRS targeting of conservative political groups. Lois Lerner, former head of the IRS tax-exempt division, twice exercised her right not to testify about the affair before the Republican-controlled House Oversight and Government Reform Committee at public hearings on Capitol Hill. After almost a year of politically charged investigations, Republican committee members voted to approve a contempt resolution against Lerner, sending it to the full House for further consideration.
