After months of paid vacation at our expense. Of course, she was just following the orders (overt or covert) of the Obama regime but there’s plenty of room under the bus. Oh, and she was about to be fired before her, uh, ‘retirement.’

Via Politico.

Embattled IRS official Lois Lerner is retiring from the agency effective Monday, two congressional aides told POLITICO.

Lerner sparked the IRS scandal in May when she acknowledged that the agency wrongly targeted tea party groups applying for a tax exemption. She was placed on administrative leave later that month and is under a subpoena to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

A Democratic congressional aide said the IRS was moving toward terminating Lerner after completing an investigation into her role in the targeting controversy…

“Just because Lois Lerner is retiring from the IRS does not mean the investigation is over,” Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch, the top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, said in a statement. “Far from it. In fact, there are many serious unanswered questions that must be addressed so we can get to the truth.”

House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrel Issa (R-Calif.) said Lerner’s retirement “does not alter the Oversight Committee’s interest in understanding why applicants for tax exempt status were targeted and inappropriately treated because of their political beliefs.”

    Obamba needs a female sacrifice so she’s the next to be tossed into the volcano. So impressive that she’s sacrificing herself for him. How many more until we’re all thrown in there?

    I feel so sorry for Lois. She will retire with a pension close to her salary and a cadillac healthcare package that we peons could only dream about. Not to mention the hush money and perks for protecting dear leader. She should be jail for her retirement years. Orange should be her NEW black.

    The real question is whether she’s going to jail. This is a serious crime.

    I know it’s an uphill battle. The Democrats are bleating like sheep that the IRS targeted left-wing groups too. It seems that everyone has their own set of facts. Can’t we agree on the hard facts? My understanding is that the instructions, as revealed by memos, clearly targeted Obama’s political opposition starting in 2010. And that the IRS output shows that the overwhelming number of cases that were held up were Obama’s political opposition. In other words, the problem is real, large, and not only objectively verifiable but objectively obvious. Those are my “facts”. As opposed to the “facts” that nothing much happened, and the IRS just did its job, checking up on everyone. Can we at least agree on objective reality?

    “Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch”

    Why does he even expend the energy? To keep his delusions alive or to torment us?

    Who is going to prosecute her?
