Guess Who Bailed on Lerner's Contempt Vote?

In case you missed it last night, Democrats and Republicans in the House of Representatives voted 250-168 to hold Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress. Guess who bailed out on the vote? Former Madam Speaker Nancy Pelosi. More from The Hill:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) did not attend the Wednesday evening vote series to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt for refusing to testify about the agency’s improper scrutiny of Tea Party groups.

She was, however, at a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraiser attended by the president and roughly 90 guests at the home of Disney Chairman Alan Horn in Bel Air, Calif., according to a White House pool report.

Pelosi also failed to cast a vote on a resolution asking the Department of Justice to appoint special counsel to investigate the IRS scandal.
