The Blaze – Well, this can’t be good.
It appears that the official who oversaw the Internal Revenue Service division responsible for targeting conservative groups has moved on from that post and now head the agency’s Obamacare office.
From ABC News:
The Internal Revenue Service official in charge of the tax-exempt organizations at the time when the unit targeted tea party groups now runs the IRS office responsible for the health care legislation.
Sarah Hall Ingram served as commissioner of the office responsible for tax-exempt organizations between 2009 and 2012. But Ingram has since left that part of the IRS and isnow the director of the IRS’ Affordable Care Act office, the IRS confirmed to ABC News today.
Her successor, Joseph Grant, is taking the fall for misdeeds at the scandal-plagued unit between 2010 and 2012. During at least part of that time, Grant served as deputy commissioner of the tax-exempt unit.
Grant announced Thursday his plans to resign from his position, TheBlaze reported. He was appointed to the post just eight days ago.
This is a breaking story. Updates will be added as they become available.
