    Put those records to good use... lets' have Lerner and her Posse of Taxholes at bat, and learn a thing or two more about how these thugs operate.
    There's no doubt I would want immunity as well....it's a witch hunt.

    Immunity, good grief, are we watching an episode of 24? Obama can't even get his own government officials under control...

    Who knows indeed, but I don't think the committee is as interested in truth as they are with a crucifixion.

    Maybe they can compromise and get both. Every time I conclude that the GOP is as dumb as a box of rocks, they surprise me a little. Just a little.

    Edit: Nah, don't bother looking. I was wrong.
    I am not an Obama apologist and I contend that she did not waive her rights. Congressional committees are not Courts of Law so trying to import court room rulings into the political committees is just pathetic partisanship as evidenced by the vote. Even if she were declared in contempt, she would still have the case referred to the real prosecutors--the same ones who did nothing when Eric Holder was declared in contempt. Like I said, grant her the immunity or the GOP will not get her to testify against her will.

    Well that's because your expectations are low...

    The only people not interested in the truth are the Fascist thugs defending this corrupt and vile administration using the IRS like the Gestapo

    Since when are you interested in truth?

    We've already seen the righties come out and denounce any evidence that didn't support their theory of Obama directing it personally as "lies."

    Breaking the law is still a crime even if Obama did not direct it. Why is it OK to target anyone for special treatment under the federal tax law based upon their name? Whether the IRS BOLO names listed were based on a particular political slant or not - it is still illegal.

    It's not special treatment it's about scrutiny and applying the law. It's a no brainer that looking at organizations with "Tea Party" is a great way to funnel out organizations that are political not social welfare groups. Just like "9/12" or "Progressive" or any of the other names they used. Now if they were denying "Tea Party" groups and allowing progressive/liberal groups to get the status that would be unequal treatment.
