Sheesh, if it wasn't for Fox News, you'd never hear about any of these stories.

I don't even know what the problem is nor how this woman can be allowed to claim the 5th.

First of all she is a government employee so how she can refuse to testify on her official duties and actions is beyond me.

Secondly, here is the entire 5th Amendment with the relevant portion bolded:

No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation - See more at: http://constitution.findlaw.com/amendment5/amendment.html#sthash.Sdc7oFxk.dpuf

What criminal case? So far none, so how can she claim the right not to self-incriminate? Self-incriminate against what? Is Lois tacitly admitting criminal activity on her part and on the part of the IRS? No criminal allegations have yet been made officially so what is she claiming the 5th on?
