House votes 231-187 to hold Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress « Hot Air

Which means that the matter will now be referred to the Department of Justice. Which is captained by Attorney General Eric Holder. Who, by the way, is also in contempt of Congress. So… yeah. If she’s ever tried and convicted, Lerner could face fines up to $100,000 and even a up to a year of jail time, but we’ll see where that goes.

I was pretty sure that this was a meaningless action.  Hell, by the time Obama leaves office, his entire administration may be in contempt of Congress.  Legally, that is.  Obama has been contemptuous of Congress since he took office, and his administration only reflects that.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
