Lois Lerner while appearing before a congressional committee for the second time again refused to talk asserting her right against self-incrimination (5th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution).
It’s not that Ms. Lerner should not have this right, but is particularly disgusting that she works for an agency before which the average taxpayer has few real rights much less the right against self-incrimination. Every time you sign and file a tax return you could be subjecting yourself to criminal prosecution! Write across the return that you are asserting your 5th Amendment right to refuse to answer – surprise you go to jail!
How do we reward IRS employees who may have been part of a criminal conspiracy (targeting political groups)? Only in America – we let them retire with a generous Federal pension – speculated to be over $100,000 per year!
Enough said – we all must get back to work and pay our taxes so Lois Lerner and her friends can enjoy the benefits of living in a democracy!
Oh by the way, if you are ever questioned by the IRS, tell them you are asserting your Lois Lerner Rights! I’m sure the agent will understand as you are carted off to jail.
