Nashua – Congressional Candidate Gary Lambert today released the following statement in response to the House Oversight Committee’s vote to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress:
“The Obama administration has made clear they will not conduct a real investigation of Lois Lerner and the IRS scandal. Therefore, I fully support the House Oversight Committee’s action today to move forward with contempt of Congress charges” said Lambert. “Using the IRS as a political weapon is unacceptable and un-American. The American people need real answers about why conservatives were targeted and intimidated by their own government and, more importantly, how do we make sure it never happens again."
