IRS Official in Contempt of Congress
TALK SHOW GUEST
Lois Lerner, previously responsible for processing applications for IRS tax-exempt status, is in contempt of Congress as determined by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. The contempt citation now goes before the entire House of Representatives for a vote.
Texas executive and American Citizen Party presidential candidate Bob McNeil calls for the entire House to cite Lerner for contempt for her refusal to cooperate with a congressional investigation into corrupt IRS practices.
“The American people cry out for justice in the face of possibly illegal practices conducted by this fearful rogue and out of control federal agency. Our elected representatives in Congress have a constitutional responsibility to investigate corruption and no federal agency or representative of a federal agency has a right to obstruct such an investigation. By refusing to testify, Ms. Lerner is obstructing the process of a congressional investigation and, as such, she is obstructing the process of justice,” notes McNeil.
Last May, after having declared her innocence under oath before the House committee, Ms. Lerner proceeded to refuse to answer questions declaring her right to do so under the Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. The committee was investigating claims that IRS agents had improperly singled out Tea Party applications for extra scrutiny. She again refused to answer questions at a hearing in March.
Committee chair Darrell Issa (R-CA) said: “We need Ms. Lerner’s testimony to complete our oversight work. American taxpayers certainly don’t get to plead the Fifth and escape all accountability when the IRS audits them.”
Oversight Committee member Elijah Cummings (D-MD), whose staff has been accused of holding inappropriate communications with the IRS, claimed that his opposition to the contempt charge was because the charge reminded him of actions allegedly taken by the late Senator Joseph R. McCarthy (R-WI) who held hearings in the 1950’s pertaining to KGB infiltration in the U.S. Government.
“By her actions in office, Lois Lerner represents everything the enemies of Senator McCarthy accused him of,” notes Bob McNeil who, if elected President in 2016, will issue a national pardon to all tax filers which would essentially render the tax-collecting agency null and void.

Bob McNeil BIOGRAPHY IN A LETTER TO AMERICA:
My name is Bob McNeil, founder of the American Citizen Party, and candidate for President of the United States in 2016.
I describe myself as “an ordinary man living an extraordinary life”.
• A professional business consultant with an accounting degree and 35 years of experience auditing multi-billion dollar corporations, here in the United States, and in a number of countries around the world.
• A veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps from 1968 through 1974.
• A father of two daughters.
• A grandfather of three beautiful children.
• A trusted friend to many.
I have been disillusioned with our two-party political system for quite a while now, but, rather than complain about it, I decided to do something about it.
So, using a lifetime of experience, plus the analytical skills I have acquired during my career as a professional auditor, I set out to write a plan that would spark the “21st Century American Revolution”.
Knowing the dangers of that exercise from the people in power, and to ensure its success, I established the following criteria for the plan:
• It must be constitutional;
• It must be peaceful;
• It must transcend race, religion, age, gender, political affiliation, economic status, and all other things that the politicians and the media use to divide us as a nation, and;
• It must restore liberty and prosperity to ALL American citizens.
In 2008, after one year of research and writing, I emerged with the plan. I formed the American Citizen Party in 2009 to serve as the platform from which to implement it, and have talked to millions of Americans about it in person, on the radio and in my blogs since then.
Now, it is time to go nationwide in order to build momentum for the 2014 election and my 2016 Presidential run.
If you yearn for liberty and prosperity like you’ve never before experienced, this is the political party you’ve been searching for.
Get involved. Sign up with your email address to receive my blogs. Contribute money to further the cause of liberty for yourself, your children, and future generations of Americans.
Together, we can, and we will, take back our country and restore it to its greatness.
The only way my plan will fail is if you continue to vote Democrats and Republicans into office, or worse, if you do nothing.
Take charge of your future. If you don’t, someone else will.
