Lois Lerner talked about working for Obama’s group Organizing for Action while she had official oversight over it

Ex-IRS official Lois Lerner talked about taking a job with President Barack Obama’s nonprofit advocacy group Organizing for Action (OFA) while she had official oversight at the IRS over nonprofit tax-exempt groups.

The revelation was made Wednesday in the House Ways and Means Committee’s referral letter to the Department of Justice (DOJ) to prosecute Lerner on criminal charges. Ways and Means voted to refer Lerner to DOJ.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is expected to vote Thursday to hold Lerner in contempt of Congress for refusing to answer questions about the years-long improper targeting of conservative groups that Lerner oversaw from Washington, D.C.
