Official at center of IRS scandal got promotion, now runs ‘Obamacare’ division

Post  fshnski on Mon May 20, 2013 7:12 am

The woman who ran the Internal Revenue Service’s tax-exempt organizations division has been promoted, and now heads the agency’s health care office, ABC news reported.

Sarah Hall Ingram was commissioner of the embattled IRS office from 2009 to 2012, roughly the period that the agency is accused of singling out tea party and conservative groups for extra scrutiny, based on nothing but their political bent.

As a firestorm grows around the IRS, Ms. Ingram quietly left the tax-exempt office and was made director of IRS Affordable Care Act division, largely responsible for implementing “Obamacare” and handling the wealth of health information that will pour into the federal government.

Meanwhile, some of Ms. Ingram’s colleagues at the IRS haven’t been as lucky. While she got a promotion, others are being shown the door.

Earlier this week, acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller — who faced a grilling on Capitol Hill on Friday morning — was pushed out by President Obama.

The man who replaced Ms. Ingram, Joseph Grant, announced that he’ll retire on June 3, even though he was only promoted to commissioner of the tax-exempt office on May 8, according to ABC.

So, if you do The One's wishes, you get bonuses—plus a promotion—although in having done so, violated IRS' own rules.

(Not to mention the rules of Decent Americanism).

Not just Tea Party—but also religious groups—of whom the IRS asked,

"What are in your prayers?"

Shocked

The Associated Press might also have some questions to ask of Ms. Ingram.
