IRS official Lois Lerner was so desperate to avoid questioning from journalist Jason Mattera that she tried to force herself into her neighbor's home.
When Mattera pursued Lerner in her Bethesda, Md., neighborhood to ask about the IRS's targeting of conservative groups, Lerner made a beeline for her neighbor's door.
Lerner's neighbor cracked the door, but seemed offended that Lerner was attempting to seek refuge in her house.
"I've had surgery, can you wait?" the neighbor asked.
Lerner refused to answer Mattera's questions about missing emails, targeting conservatives, and requests for an apology. Instead, Lerner asked her neighbor to call the police on Mattera and his cameraman.
When her neighbor's husband approached the front door to see what was happening, Lerner finally realized she was not going to be let in.
"I don't want her in the house," the man said. "Out!"
Lerner made a quick getaway and continued to dodge Mattera's questions.
"I wouldn't want her in my house either," Mattera said to the man. "She might bring the government after you."
