WASHINGTON — A House committee voted Thursday in favor of holding Lois Lerner, a former Internal Revenue Service official, in contempt of Congress for her refusal to testify before the panel.

Lerner, the former head of the IRS’s tax-exempt branch, twice appeared in front of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and declined to respond to questions, citing her Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination. The panel is investigating the IRS’s alleged targeting of conservative groups.
