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.

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"
