Former director of scandal-ridden IRS unit now heading Obamacare office


When the president hopped on stage yesterday evening to announce that acting IRS commissioner Steven Miller would be spending more time with his family, it didn’t take long for people to realize that 1) Miller was leaving anyway and 2) he was appointed to the post after the scandalous activities noted in the inspector general’s report were set in action. So what happened to the person who actually was in charge of the tax-exempt unit when the IRS was targeting conservative groups?

From ABC News:

The Internal Revenue Service official in charge of the tax-exempt organizations at the time when the unit targeted tea party groups now runs the IRS office responsible for the health care legislation.

Sarah Hall Ingram served as commissioner of the office responsible for tax-exempt organizations between 2009 and 2012. But Ingram has since left that part of the IRS and is now the directorof the IRS’ Affordable Care Act office, the IRS confirmed to ABC News today.

Yesterday, Obama said that Americans were “right to be angry” about IRS harassment of conservatives, and news that Hall Ingram has her hands deep in Obamacare enforcement isn’t making people any happier.

Just saw the whole IRS Tea Party Kommissar becoming the IRS Obamacare Kommissar story. Can this thing get any more perfect?
