In what should come as a shock to no one, the Department of Justice has declined to indict Lois Lerner but did decide to indict New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez.
The DOJ found that former Lerner, the former IRS official who was behind the targeting of tea party groups, didn’t waive her Fifth Amendment rights when she made a statement to Congress in June.
But, surprise, surprise, Eric Holder’s politicized prosecutors did find enough reason to indict Menendez, a Democrat who has been a thorn in the administration’s side on the issues of negotiations with Iran and illegal immigration, with 14 counts of corruption.
Interesting how that worked out.
The irony, hypocrisy and what appears to be a blatant reward-your-friends-and-punish-your-enemies strategy was not lost on the Twitterverse.

What we learned today: Do what the White House wants (Lois Lerner) = No charges. Go against the White House (Sen Menendez) = Charges.

Menendez didn’t follow the rest of the libs in Obama’s line of loyals therefore the DOJ is lashing out. But Lois Lerner, no she’s A OK!

The Chicago Way is to not charge Lois Lerner with a crime cuz she helped you and to charge Menendez with crimes cuz he didn’t. #IRS

On the same day, Obama’s DOJ tries to whitewash Lois Lerner while indicting Senator Menendez (an Obama critic). It’s the Chicago way.
