IRS Source: Lerner Placed On Administrative Leave
National Review ^ | 5/23/13 | Eliana Johnson

Posted on 05/23/2013 2:06:19 PM PDT by Nachum

Lois Lerner, the Internal Revenue Service’s director of exempt organizations, has been placed on administrative leave, according to a source in the agency’s Cincinnati office.

Lerner on Thursday afternoon sent an e-mail to employees in the exempt organizations division she oversees stating, “Due to the events of recent days, I am on administrative leave starting today. An announcement will be made shortly informing you who will be acting while I am on administrative leave. I know all of you will continue to support EO’s mission during these difficult times.” She concluded, “I thank you for all your hard work and dedication,” adding, “The work you do is important.”

They should freeze her pay and take away any and all bonuses - she’s abused the American taxpayer for too long.

I keep thinking about her testimony. The woman is supposed to be a lawyer, had advice from a lawyer but managed to invalidate her 5th amendment rights. Is it possible she did it on purpose and is her ‘leave’ because they figured out she did it on purpose?

Adninistrative Leave?

Good. That will give her more time to testify before Congress.

He’s also hiding these scandals. His speech today had NOTHING to do with the scandals. Is he not concerned about what the IRS did if he didn’t know? He SHOULD be, but chose to talk about terrorism. We know he must have known, but.. Lies beget more lies. Today was diversion.

Good suppositions.

I guess we’ll know if/when she is called back to Congress again. I’d LOVE to see her start naming names and throwing officials under the bus.

She took the 5th when testifying to Congress.

That alone is grounds for immediate termination. No pay, no benefits.

Administrative leave, my a**.

"Is it possible she did it on purpose and is her ‘leave’ because they figured out she did it on purpose?"

I've wondered if Issa might be trying to cut a deal. I've also wondered if the tracks don't lead to Obama's Rasputin (Valerie Jarrett).

Either way, May/June is a great time to take an extended paid vacation. Why haven't I ever had an employer like that?

I hope this “witch” is not receiving any pay or benefits at all during her administratvie leave. Otherwise this action is just a farce....and it will not go down well. My gut feeling is that she is being treated royally by Obama and his criminal thugs!!! She is probably having tea with Michelle Obama & Valerie Jarrett this very evening!! I’ll bet Obama has just given her an extended vacation with pay and benefits included!!!

Can anyone find how Lois is connected to the union?
Is she a member?
Is she an adversary? Who answers to whom?

WHO will deliver subpoenas to Joe Biden, Valerie Jarrett, Hillary Clinton, Lois Lerner, David Axelrod, Leon Panetta, Eric Holder, Gen. Petraeus, Gen. Ham......

The list goes on and on and on.

Demand to know:
Where are these people? When will they be called to account?

Call your representatives.

And a forfeiture, or a substantial reduction, in her pension!

Subject her to either jail time or that, and she'll start yapping.

Lerner’s only job right now is to protect the Democrat party. This gives her all the time she needs to work on that. This is just another example of a person paid by the US taxpayers being used for a political coverup. And even if they put her on unpaid leave, the Democrats will still pay her. We need to encourage the Democrat media people and Democrat government shills to ask for more payoff money these days.

She and all her subordinates have CONFIDENTIAL JOBS. You don't go on administrative leave after pleading the Fifth ~ they change the locks!

No one else ever got a sweetheart deal like this if she's going to continue to receive pay.
