sebelius n holder hhsFirst—

It seems the Congressional GOP is finally trying to push for some movement in its investigation into the IRS scandal.  Remember Lois Lerner?  You know, the IRS woman who basically oversaw the harassment of all those Tea Party groups — who followed up a big speech during the hearings that She Did Nothing Wrong … with a declaration of pleading the Fifth.  For those of you not familiar with basic legalese … that’s exercising the right to remain silent — so as to prevent self-incrimination.

Is the Senate Judiciary Committee Compromised?

Those companies who also do business in Comcast's markets do so either with
