The House Just Voted on Lois Lerner’s Fate in IRS Scandal — And It’s Not Good News for Her

The House decided Wednesday that Lois Lerner is in contempt of Congress for refusing to testify about the IRS targeting scandal, despite a subpoena that demanded her testimony.
Members voted 231-187 to find Lerner in contempt, a vote that saw six Democrats join Republicans.

The dramatic House vote caps off a year of Republican attempts to investigate the IRS’s decision to apply extra scrutiny to conservative groups, many of which were seeking tax-exempt status in the run-up to the 2012 election.
