Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) – a member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform – issued the following statement in response to Lois Lerner’s departure from the Internal Revenue Service:

"Lois Lerner's departure from the IRS is long overdue but it does not relieve her of her duty – given the waiver of her Fifth Amendment rights – to answer questions before the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.  I will continue to work diligently to hold IRS officials accountable for the malfeasance of the agency."
