GOP Senator: Lois Lerner’s Retirement Is Only the Beginning of Us Dragging This Thing Out

Last week, Lois Lerner was "technically still employed," but Bloomberg's Richard Rubin reports that the former director of exempt organizations is out of there effective today.

HOWEVAH! If you thought this was the end of political gamesmanship, then you would be sorely mistaken:

In fact, there are many serious unanswered questions that must be addressed so we can get to the truth.”

Thanks, Hatch. Do let us know when you arrive in truth town.
