While You Labor . . . | National Review Online

Lerner will keep receiving her annual salary of $177,000. As Fox News Channel documented, this sum — which is $3,000 higher than the $174,000 paid to U.S. senators —

So, why is Lerner still getting paid, even though she is a ringleader of the biggest scandal to rock the IRS since Watergate?

One could argue that Lerner is innocent until proven guilty. However, that might merit her being separated from her duties without pay while all of this shakes out. If she truly did nothing wrong, all of her wages can be restored. If she violated IRS procedures or regulations, however, all of her undeserved gains will remain in the Treasury.

There is another explanation for why Lerner is getting paid to slumber and watch game shows. Her paychecks are hush money. Lerner’s uninterrupted compensation conveniently reminds her that she can keep paying her bills as long as she is a good soldier and keeps her mouth shut.

Moronic OP. She is on paid administrative leave, while the review process continues. It's the law, not Obama.

she is on paid admin leave, per the law and likely her employment contract, she will remain paid until they finish reviewing her actions and decide whether she can be lawfully terminated.

obama has nothing to do with this, the laws were in place before he took office.

Do any of the apologists have links stating that it is law that she receive paid leave? Thought so. If she is suspected of breaking the law or gross incompetence, there are various remedies.

Do any of you have any evidence that she should not be on paid administrative leave.

Do any of you know admin law.

Not one of you, or you would be posting the evidence.

Her management had the option of putting her on leave with or without pay. They obviously chose with pay so that she will stay on the plantation and sacrifice herself for the great maobama.

It's literally one of the first search results that comes up...

Lois Lerner, the director of the tax-exempt organizations division at the Internal Revenue Service, has been placed on administrative leave, sources in Congress and the administration confirm.

Federal workers are given pay and benefits when put on administrative leave.

Then she is guilty of gross incompetence for not knowing what her underlings were doing. Either way she should be fired.

The IRS has about 100,000 employees. You realize expect the top of the org chart to know what's happening in every office and at every level?

Yes. When they are targeting people or organizations for political reasons the person in charge should know about it. And she did, why else would she take the 5th?
