IRS Official who Resigned Over Scandal Was Already Leaving in June

Last night President Obama made a statement to the country promising to hold those responsible for inappropriate targeting of conservative groups at the IRS. He announced that his Treasury Secretary had asked and received the resignation for Acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller. Sounds great right? Wrong. Apparently Miller was leaving anyway…at the end of June. Not to mention, Miller had only been in his position as acting director since November 2012. Six months after the election and two years of harassment toward conservative groups.

In an email to IRS employees, Miller claimed he would only be leaving next month because his assignment would be over.

‘It is with regret that I will be departing from the IRS as my acting assignment ends in early June,’ Miller wrote. ‘This has been an incredibly difficult time for the IRS given the events of the past few days, and there is a strong and immediate need to restore public trust in the nation’s tax agency.’
