I don't have a problem with Lerner taking the Fifth today. It exists to force the State to make their case, and I defend its use by anyone. It does suggest that Lerner has some dirt on her hands, however. It also provides some bad optics for the Administration, as all the Networks will have video of Lerner taking the Fifth on the screens of America tonight, and she may very well find herself guilty in the Court Of Public Opinion.
It also appears that this whole affair was covered up prior to the 2012 elections, as was Benghazi. I have no doubt in my mind that this information - the IRS targeting political groups - would have cost Obama the election.
Nice to see Republicans and now Democrats calling for a Special Prosecutor. One should have been appointed already. It's clear this goes deeper than a few "rogue" IRS employees, and the truth needs to come out.
The polls aren't looking very favorably on the President at this point. Look for them to go lower as more inconsistencies in the various lies stories continue to come out.
