On a side note, she reminds me of the "Church Lady" from SNL. The pic on Drudge.

I'm sure she did the White Houses bidding, and kept all those anti-Obama election groups from getting their legs. They can't really turn on her, without risking getting burned.

Yep! If they hang her out to dry to quick, she can come back and bite them. My guess, which doesn't mean shit, tells me she hangs in for awhile. This will give the political machines time to have her set up nicely in a private job somewhere so when it is time, she will give her resignation.

She'll probably start her own 501(c)4 organization.

Actually, he (Steven Miller) was very much there and very much personally involved throughout the time period involved. He held the title of Deputy Commissioner for Services and Enforcement, a title which he kept after also being named Acting Commish. He directed and oversaw all major tax-exempt decisions under the previous Commissioner..
I heard differently on the radio, but I'll take your word for it.

So he was fired (asked to resign) for cause?

Here's a link to Friday's transcript:

LINK

"CAMP: All right. Thank you, Mr. Miller.

Are you still acting director of the IRS?

MILLER: I am, sir.

CAMP: Were you appointed by the president of the United States in that?

MILLER: No, sir.

CAMP: When was that?

MILLER: I was designated as acting in November. November of 2012.

CAMP: 2012.

And if I'm not mistaken, you hold two titles, acting director of the IRS and also deputy commissioner for services and enforcement?

MILLER: I do, sir.

CAMP: And in your role as deputy commissioner for services and enforcement, according to the IRS Web site, in that capacity, you direct and oversee all major decisions with regard to the tax exempt and government entities division?

MILLER: That is a division that reports through -- to me through the tax exempt and government entities office. Yes."

*****************

"CAMP: Were you ever made aware in August of 2010 that a White House official in a conference call with reporters disclosed confidential tax structure of a private company?

MILLER: I probably read it in the paper, sir.

CAMP: OK. You are made aware through news reports?

MILLER: I think that's probably. It's a long time ago.

CAMP: Did you take any steps when you learned of that?

MILLER: I don't recall. I'm not -- I don't -- I don't recall. I'd have to go back on that, sir.

CAMP: All right. So, you didn't inform the inspector general of that or your superiors that you recollect?

MILLER: I'm not sure why I would have to notify the superiors, it was in the papers. I don't remember whether we made a referral or I made a referral at that time.

CAMP: All right. According to the manufacture inspector general audit, the targeting of conservatives groups began in March of 2010. When were you made aware?

MILLER: I was aware of that on May 3rd of 2012.

CAMP: And how were you made aware?

MILLER: I was made aware of not the targeting, but I was made aware of the process that was described in the TIGTA report when I asked some of our people to go out and take a look at the cases, subsequently to the -- to the public discussion over broad letters coming out.

CAMP: So, that would have been in your role as acting director, as well as deputy commissioner for services?

MILLER: No, I was deputy at that time.

CAMP: You were deputy at that time. And when you say, you asked some of our people, who would that have been?

MILLER: So, I asked the senior technical adviser for tax exempt and government entities to lead a team, take a look, see what was going on in terms of cases that had gotten those letters.

CAMP: Did you inform anyone of that action that you took? Those steps?

MILLER: So I did that. I mean, I asked the senior technical adviser to do that in late March, March 23rd, 26th, something like that, and she and her team came back to talk to me in May, and subsequent to that, I'm sure I informed the commissioner. But the commissioner was aware of the letters as well.

CAMP: Did you inform anyone other than the commissioner at that time?

MILLER: You mean up the chain, sir?

CAMP: Yes.

MILLER: I don't believe so."

Won't do any good. She'll claim ignorance. We'll only learn the truth if they get the 'rogue' agents to testify under oath. We need to know if they were ordered to do it and who gave the order.

Will both Bush appointees testify this week?

Surely, one will spill the beans.

Wasn't the guy who was forced to resign already planning on stepping down in June?

Seems like a pretty easy to find scape goat.

Doubt it. The IRS is allowed to claim ignorance when they break the law, but you aren't.

Why did the White House accept the resignation of the guy who wasn't there when these crimes were being committed, but stand behind the woman who WAS there while the IRS targeted Obama's political enemies? Why not request and accept her immediate resignation as well?

Good God Almighty . . . please tell me you read that in "Media Matters"

Because no credible source on Earth would propose that a Civil Service employee, possibly involved in job-related criminal wrong-doing, could not be moved out of a proposed position pending outcome of an investigation.

I'm not sure what the point of that article is other than to portray another war on women.

Appointees can be moved out on a whim. Civil Service employees require evidence of wrongdoing, usually enough to go before an independent board. I am fairly sure it is difficult enough to convince a civil service employee is guilty even when they are directly involved. Firing a civil service manager for not managing properly? One could almost consider that the norm in some departments.
