The House Oversight and Government Reform committee voted Friday and determined that Lois Lerner, the head of tax exempt groups at the IRS, waved her Fifth Amendment rights during testimony over a month ago after she voluntarily made an opening statement. In that statement, Lerner said she had done nothing wrong. She was called to testify in front of the Committee after admitting at a conference that the IRS had inappropriately targeted conservative tea party groups.
