Lois Lerner’s price for testimony: Immunity

Embattled IRS official Lois Lerner will not testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee unless she’s given immunity from prosecution, her lawyer told POLITICO Tuesday.

“They can obtain her testimony tomorrow by doing it the easy way … immunity,” William W. Taylor III said in a phone interview. “That’s the way to resolve all of this.”

The comments reflect the hard-line approach Lerner, the former head of the IRS division that scrutinized conservative groups, and her legal team are taking in defending her role in the agency’s scandal.

Taylor, a founding partner of Zuckerman Spaeder LLP, is even shrugging off the possibility that the full House might vote to hold Lerner in contempt.

No immunity1 Just because congress gives her immunity doesn't mean she is going to give congress any information that might lead to the White House's involvement in targeting conservatives groups.

Excellent point!!!

Why should she get any kind of immunity when according to her, she did nothing wrong.

Hang the witch, she helped the owebomb get a second term by her actions and screwed the nation.

RE: Your Pic...

Did she actually have the audacity to say that?  'I Am Above The Law'?  No, lady.... You are an IRS slimeball.  You need to get this, and get it straight:  You are in comtempt of CONgress for refusing to answer questions.  You are in contempt of the PEOPLE for that startement.  You need to go and join with the savant in chief and leave for Kenya immediately.

Your to kind

she sure has the obama pose down doesn't she

Give her immunity, and she'll lie anyway!

Why does she need immunity.....she said she did nothing illegal!!!!!!  But wait a minute, could that have been a fib?  Sounds like another case of lying before a Congressional committee.

If she does spill the beans, she had better have a very good 24-7 protection from those that don't want the whole story told!

If not guilty - why immunity?

SHE SHOULD GET WHAT I WOULD GET IF FOUND GUILTY...........PROBABLY 30 TO LIFE!!!!!!!!

SHE WILL JUST LIE ABOUT EVERYTHING, BLAME SOMEONE ELSE, NOT ONE OF THEM CAN TELL THE TRUTH!!!

Excellent point!!! 

I think that you are very correct, goodie !  Treat her like any other American.  Jail her !  Obama will let her out when he leaves office, maybe.

INDICT the &%*$#%^& BIT*H she will squeal like the PIG that she is!!!!!!! & Bring the ADMINISTRATION DOWN. She already gave up her right to the 5th by answering questions before her plead , The mighty will fall SONER than later !!!!!!!

Florida Sheriff — “I Will Not Enforce Assault Weapons Ban, Neither Will Most Sheriffs”

Dennis Lemma, who is the Sheriff in Central Florida’s Seminole County, told a group of 2nd Amendment activists recently that he would not enforce an assault weapons ban that could soon become Florida law if the “Ban Assault Weapons Now” amendment passes in the Sunshine State.

According to News965, the ban has the following specifications.

The amendment proposed in the state legislature would ban possession of assault weapons, which are defined as “semiautomatic rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition at once, either in fixed or detachable magazine, or any other ammunition feeding device.”

Lemma, an ardent supporter of the 2nd Amendment and a first term sheriff who is running for re-election, said this about whether or not he would enforce such a law.

“It’s not only that I wouldn’t, the majority of sheriffs across the state would not do it,” Lemma said in the video. It’s up to the sheriffs what they are willing to enforce.”
