Last night, Barack Obama tried to take control of the narrative on one of the scandals that have rocked his administration by announcing that IRS Commissioner Steve Miller had resigned by request of Treasury Secretary Jack Lew. As it turns out, Miller was leaving in a month anyway, but the outgoing IRS chief took the time to note that the wrongdoing was limited to two IRS employees in the Cincinnati office, who had already been disciplined which directly contradicts the Inspector Generals report, which shows managerial involvement since March 2010 at least, and coordination between multiple offices and units. The report also notes that at least 300 applications got improperly obstructed, and the number is likely much higher than that.
Fox 19 in Cincinnati reports that the number doubled yesterday evening to four IRS employees, and that theyre not terribly interested in martyrdom (via Twitchy):
FOX19 has exclusively learned that as many as four people may be the first Cincinnati Internal Revenue Service (IRS) employees to face disciplinary action, and possibly even criminal charges, for allegedly targeting Tea Party and Liberty groups applying for non-profit status.
On Wednesday, the IRS announced that it had pinpointed two employees at the agencys Cincinnati office for being primarily responsible.

Don’t these underlings know they should willingly commit hari-kari for the Emperor?
Yet another WHOOPER told by THE FOREIGNER. This using the IRS like an attack dog on a leash to support and enforce his WARPED COMMUNIST IDEOLOGY will be what brings down THE FOREIGNER. Without a doubt THE MOST CORRUPT REGIME in the history of U.S. politics and will make NIXON and CLINTON look like quire boys when the dust settles.
In IG speak that means the IG has already looked at the details in the process and found that normal delays do not account for what his investigators found.
That means this goes upstairs to higher levels of management ~
Let this be a lesson. It’s better if you tell your boss that you’re NOT going to do what he asks because it’s WRONG. If he fires you, you sue his a$$ off.
How will our Muslim president reward them? 60 virgins?
The House better get them in a safe house,quickly.
It might be wise for Ms. Lerner to start putting resumes out, doesn’t sound like the underlings are going to fall on their swords.
Listen to the tape. These guys say their sources told them two Cincinnati IRS agents have been subpoenaed to testify before Congress on Monday and they are saying they just followed orders from higher up.
You have obviously never tried suing a government agency.
What will Miller resigning actually accomplish? It doesn't even make it look like Obama is doing anything about the problem. Will the "news" media sit by, accept the "resignation" and go back to cooing at Zero?
So.... they are saying they are just as guilty as their bosses.
The letters have now been found to come from a lot of other states, so it was not confined to one city, or state, for that matter! These guys really do think we’re all dumb. I know they count on their own constituency being so, but I think they think that because we might listen to Rush, Levin, Hannity, or Beck, that we are dumber! HAHAHA!
True, but it puts the lie to the claim this was all done by two “rogue” agents.
A very, very salient point from the article:
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) official who apologized for targeting conservative nonprofit groups for extra scrutiny is married to an attorney whose firm hosted a voter registration organizing event for the 2012 Obama re-election campaign, praised President Obamas policy work, and had one of its partners appointed by Obama to a key ambassadorship.
IRS Exempt Organizations Division director Lois G. Lerner, who has been described as apolitical in mainstream press coverage of the IRS scandal, is married to tax attorney Michael R. Miles, a partner at the law firm Sutherland Asbill & Brennan. The firm is based in Atlanta but has a number of offices including in Washington, D.C., where Miles works.
The 400-attorney firm hosted an organizing meeting at its Atlanta office for people interested in helping with voter registration for the Obama re-election campaign.
FNC hammered Zero on this, even the poofter Shemp Smith!
Obama has to be running scared over this. Fewer of his underlings are willing to fall on their swords for him. There’s no more room under the bus.
Turn the screws until they finger who told them to do it.
Repeat until Obama.
cheapskate - it’s supposed to be 72.
I guess Baraq just might be a “discount muslim”.
