Pelosi misses Lerner vote for fundraiser

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) did not attend the Wednesday evening vote series to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt for refusing to testify about the agency’s improper scrutiny of Tea Party groups.

She was, however, at a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee fundraiser attended by the president and roughly 90 guests at the home of Disney Chairman Alan Horn in Bel Air, Calif., according to a White House pool report.

She also did not vote on the resolution to call on the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel in the IRS investigation. 

Moreover, Pelosi did not vote in the mid-afternoon vote series on Wednesday either.

Pelosi's office did not comment.
