Lawmakers Introduce Bill Providing Reward For Missing IRS Emails

(Undated)  --  Anyone able to track down former IRS official Lois Lerner's missing emails stands to make a million dollars for their efforts.  

Texas Republican Representatives Louie Gohmert and Bill Flores have introduced a bill to offer not only the million bucks, but another $500,000 for any information that leads to criminal prosecution over the matter.  The same bill would also cut IRS employee pay by 20 percent until the emails are found.  

The email controversy stems from questions over whether Lerner ordered IRS staffers to specifically target conservative organizations trying to gain tax-exempt status.  

The IRS informed Congress earlier this month that it could not turn over many of Lerner's emails believed to be related to the scandal, because they'd been wiped out in a computer hard drive crash.
