(Washington, DC)  --  IRS official Lois Lerner is on administrative leave.  The move comes just a day after she took the Fifth while testifying on Capitol Hill in the IRS scandal.  The agency has come under fire for placing conservative groups under extra scrutiny while applying for non-profit status.  Lerner oversees tax exemption requests and was subpoenaed to appear before a House committee, but decided to use her Fifth Amendment rights against self-incrimination.  Ken Corbin will replace Lerner on an acting basis.
