For the Sixth Time, Obama Administration Official Pleads the Fifth on Targeting Conservative Groups

LAVALLETTE, NJ – Conservative Republican Congressional candidate Steve Lonegan responded to former IRS official Lois Lerner’s decision to plead the Fifth Amendment against self-incrimination for the sixth time in front of a Congressional hearing today with the following statement:

“Sadly we are again reminded today of the old adage, ‘If it walks like a duck.’ In pleading the Fifth again, Lois Lerner has led us to believe she is protecting those government agents responsible for targeting conservative political groups. Barack Obama promised the American people that he would have the most transparent Administration in history, and instead he has created an enemies list. In this country, no citizen should fear their government. The power in this country rests with the people, not government, a value Barack Obama may never understand.”
