Boehner Seeks Contempt Charges Against Lerner

(Bloomberg) House Speaker John Boehner said an IRS official should be held in contempt if she continues to refuse to testify on the agency’s scrutiny of Tea Party groups.
Lois Lerner, who retired from the Internal Revenue Service in September amid the inquiry, exercised her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination at a hearing today after 10 questions from Representative Darrell Issa, the Republican chairman of the House Oversight Committee.
“She has to testify or she should be held in contempt,” Boehner, an Ohio Republican, told reporters, adding that he would wait for a report from Issa.
