WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will appoint senior White House budget officer Daniel Werfel to be acting commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service, a White House official says.
Werfel will replace Steven Miller, ousted Wednesday amid revelations that the IRS improperly singled out conservative groups for special scrutiny.

Maybe Zer0 could double tap him.
I hope he's got some KY Jelly for that!
I thought it would be Charlie Rangel
I thought it was the IRS that was tapping AP sources ....
Not to be confused with former UF Great, Danny Wuerffel.
The LIV will not know the difference.
Putting a WH lacky in charge
Yep. All the President’s Men. Haven’t we seen this movie before?
RINOs will vigorously protest by writing a kind-hearted memo to Zero.
He is a lawyer and so the fix is truly in...this IRS head won’t be stupid enough to get caught ripping up the constitution and persecuting conservatives.
He can always claim ignorance of the details of what the “little” people under him are/were doing.
A different commissar, tis all.
Does he have to be confirmed?
Forbidding unions from ‘organizing’ the federal employees would be a good start, if the lying sonofabitch actually wanted to fix the problem. In reality, the ones who put this post turtle up on his perch don’t want this very devious emans tothreaten and control Ameircans to go away. Google Aaron Russo and his 2 hour plus video on the Income tax and the world rulers actually running the nations.
Sure sounds like it. It sounds like he was part of developing and implementing Obama's "feel the pain of the sequester" project. And he served as an attorney in the Justice's civil rights division, which if during Obama's first term, means he was on board with the reverse discrimination policies.
I think so and the thinking seems to be since he was already confirmed once, he will sail through Congress.
Congress should put an indefinite hold on him until we get a special prosecutor for the IRS investigation...but they won’t.
Thanks for the info! He sounds like a real ‘team’ player....the traitor team.
Werfel will be tasked to not get caught.
I expect that it would help if you put it over there... somewhere.
How about that other towering intellect, Hank Johnson?
Of course we all know he is just using this as a metaphor.
Obamas known for “temporary service” when it can be used in his favor.
Danny Wuerffel would do a heckuva lot better job. He’s as honest as the day is long.
I guess Obama didn’t like Terry Dean, either....took Werfel instead....
(Ol’ Gator/SEC joke)
Just another government flack with contempt for the law. This is not going to fly.
Maybe Obama doesn't know any honest people.
if this author were a true journalist he would’ve known what Fox News reported almost immediately last night after the supposed firing of the acting commish were announced, that Steven Millers appointment as acting commish was expiring in June anyway, which makes this a red herring firing!
Daniel Werfel, Controller, Office of Federal Financial Management, Office of Management and Budget
This one has Jack Lew’s fingerprints all over it.
Yep! Bump for truth!
Look like an ahole.
Boston.com needs to get with it. Miller didn't get ousted. He voluntarily resigned as his temporary job was soon ending.
Idiot reporters can’t even frame questions correctly.... here is what they needed to say...
“Mr. President you and some Democrats have labled the Congressional inquiries into the terror attack on Benghazi as a political side show, in order to avoid any inpropriety of a political nature won’t you call on the AG to use a Special Prosecutor for the IRS and the AP Scandals?
That’s SOP. Clinton put his political cronies in earlier and then switched as the scandals came to light. Little will be done, some may go to jail, but the real action is winning in 2014 and again in 2016. We need to control all three branches in 2016 - SCOTUS appointments!
Obama told CNN:
"You see, the IRS is an independent enforcement agency"
Love it!! Gonna tweet it right now!
. Despite DOLs guidance, some contractors have indicated they are still considering issuing WARN Act notices, and some have inquired about whether federal contracting agencies would cover WARN Act-related costs in connection with the potential sequestration, says Daniel Werfel, controller for the Office of Federal Financial Management and Joseph Jordan, administrator for federal procurement policy, in the memo. http://www.aviationweek.com/Article.aspx?id=/article-xml/awx_10_01_2012_p0-501519.xml
That’s when I did a WTH when I heard the name mentioned on the radio.....like, NO WAY
Tremendous find. Attaboy.
yep, what a crazy world
Who gives a rats ass?....different person - same agenda!
