WASHINGTON - Steven Miller, who resigned on Wednesday as the acting head of the Internal Revenue Service, said in a message to colleagues that there is a "strong and immediate need" to restore public trust in the nation's tax agency.
Miller resigned after the IRS became embroiled in a controversy over the agency's targeting of conservative groups for extra scrutiny.
"It is with regret that I will be departing from the IRS as my acting assignment ends in early June," Miller said in an internal message that was released by the IRS. "This has been an incredibly difficult time for the IRS given the events of the past few days, and there is a strong and immediate need to restore public trust in the nation's tax agency."
Apparently, he was leaving anyway and just upstaged the Kenyan with an email. That will leave a mark.
The IRS would have to lop off whole slices of the pyramid and go to an innocent until proven guilty protocol before they gain any cred with me.
Not good enough.
Probably transferring to State or EPA.
The wheels on the bus go thump thump thump...
Obama should resign as the is this idiot’s boss
That wasn't trust, Stevie boy, that was and is fear.
Trust??? How do you trust people who are arrogant and utterly unaccountable to anyone else?
Case closed.Now to cheer on those 16,000 new IRS agents hired to enforce OsamaObamaCare.
Are those Tamerlan bump sounds?
The correct term is “Underbussed”.
There was a time when everyone trusted the IRS, when teenage girls would tell an IRS agent things they’d be afraid to tell their own mothers. But then (sob) Nixon had an enemy’s list that he sicked the IRS on. Now, poor Obama is being tarred with the same brush, when really we need to be looking for feathers and a rail.
“Some people call me the space cowboy . . . some call me the gangster of love . . .”
He was scheduled to leave in early June anyway. Meaningless.
Or maybe overbussed?
Obama Fires Acting IRS Commissioner
AT THE top of his brief appearance, Obama stated that the IRS misconduct was inexcusable. He segued then to say that hed talked to Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, and then stated that the acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller has been asked for his resignation and it was given.
"Yeah, Miller had to go."
So he needed to leave weeks earlier, just as this was hitting the fan.
Since you are leaving why not tell all, what Obama threatened you with..You could be a hero if you just tell all..The communist needed to be outed before he does any more harm to our country.. I just wonder if the IRS Is still going to be in charge of Obamas “DEATH CARE”..
His resignation letter highlighted that. Kicked some dirt at Barry.
He didn’t want to apply for the permanent position? His application was turned down? Why? Because the bus’ undercarriage had to be fed? Because he’s an incompetent boob? Both?
Miller also ran the harassment of conservatives and right-wing organizations during the 90's as part of the Clinton administration. He was probably one of the administrators responsible for this particular scandal.
Miller should probably be jailbait.
Can you say....”Fall Guy?”
On his way 2 work 4 ATF? EPA?
DOZENS should be jailed for this.
as former Senator from Ohio and AG under Nixon (the last one) Bill Saxbe once said, “that’s like shooting the guy that plays the piano in the cat house.”
one token guy resigning should restore all confidence in the irs.
“The wheels on the bus go thump thump thump...”
Except zero flies around on a magic carpet.
He is living proof that America was not ready for a black president and demonstrating it to the fullest.
Not good enough.To say the very least!
Obama should resign
I’d sure like to know if the fake tea party groups were targeted.
If they weren’t that suggests even deeper democrat complicity.
Utterly predictable. Had to be someone high enough to be deemed worthy as a sacrificial victim, but not anyone who had any serious power.
This guy was a placeholder. And “acting” head of the IRS.
Suuuure... that will solve everything.
And take those two rogue agents with you, Eric and ob wan.
That’s pretty neat. Commit a federal crime, resign from your job, walk away probably with a bonus, nice pension and free non-obamacare health care.
How nice. Arrests no longer allowed in the Obama administration?
I thought it was two rogue low level employees, wha happened?
Pray for America to Wake Up
Not enough. He MUST go to prison.
He was slated to leave in June anyway.....
No principles there. He’ll go out kicking and screaming.
