INSTAPUNDIT wants to know why the rehab?:

LOIS LERNER TOOK THE FIFTH, but now she’s telling Politico that she did nothing wrong, and that she’s the real victim here.And note the prominent play Politico gives to alleged anti-semitic epithets, and to Lerner’s brownie-baking. So why the media-rehab operation — and that’s what this is — and why now?

(more commentary, hit the link)

I want to know if she took the fifth in front of Congress, how come her lawyers are allowing her to talk to the media or any one else for that matter?

As for the ‘why now’ Instapundit asks, I think the reasoning is that if they humanize her, it’s harder to attack her. They want people feeling sorry for her when the other shoe drops and this move likely signals that other shoe is coming. My reaction wasn’t to feel bad for her, it was disgust. She was a public servant and blew off Congress, yet will talk to an Obama-centric outlet? That almost stinks as bad as taking the 5th.
