House Resolution Submitted To Arrest Lois Lehrer

Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas) announced on Thursday that has filed a resolution directing the House sergeant-at-arms to “arrest Lois Lerner for contempt” over theIRS targeting scandal. 
Stockman said in a statement that asking the U.S. Department of Justice to prosecute Lerner for “admittedly illegal activity” is a “joke.” Instead, the Republican said it is up to the U.S. House to “uphold the rule of law and hold accountable those who illegally targeted American citizens for simply having different ideas than the President.” 
Under the proposed resolution, Lerner would be held in a Washington, D.C., jail and would be given access to an attorney and all her constitutional rights. 
“It’s time to for House to stop tacitly endorsing this administration’s illegal activity by refusing to hold him accountable,” Stockman said. “I expect Democrats to defend and even praise criminal activity. The question is whether Republican leadership will join them in mocking the House and breaking the law.” 
Contempt of Congress is an actual criminal offense and the Supreme Court has previously upheld the right of Congress to hold people in contempt and even imprison them, the New York Times reported.

Good God, I hope this sticks.

michele's friend should also be sued for at least 70% of the 3/4's of a billion she netted creating a 30% complete, full of bugs, totally insecure website for obammycare, that even if complete and working should have cost about 5 million. (I'm a website developer and my boss and I created an Intranet site at work in the same timeframe (2 yrs) that is 50 times more functional, works, and is secure, since WE have to conform to PCI rules for website security relative to credit card transactions.... Believe me, we would have been ecstatic to have been paid 10 Mil for it...)

Take the remaining 30% based on pain and suffering of the idiots who actually tried to use it to sign up for [non]healthcare.

LL - It will take years to fix it. Years to eliminate the treacherous worms that inhabit it.
