GOP Rep. Files House Motion to Have Lois Lerner Arrested

Republican Congressman Steve Stockman has officially filed a motion today to have former IRS official Lois Lerner arrested. In the press release announcing the move, Stockman trolls Democrats a bit by pointing out Nancy Pelosi once talked about arresting Karl Rove.

Stockman declares, “Asking the Justice Department to prosecute Lois Lerner for admittedly illegal activity is a joke. The Obama administration will not prosecute the Obama administration. How much longer will the House allow itself to be mocked? It is up to this House to uphold the rule of law and hold accountable those who illegally targeted American citizens for simply having different ideas than the President.”

Stockman calls on fellow Republicans to get behind this measure, lest they want to join the Democrats in “mocking the House and breaking the law.”
