Another IRS official leaving

(CNN) - Joseph Grant plans to retire June 3 from the Internal Revenue Service, where he heads the agency's tax exempt/government entities division, according to an internal memo for IRS employees that was obtained by CNN.

He is the second top IRS official to announce his imminent resignation as the agency grapples with a scandal involving its targeting of conservative groups.

    Yesterday the already planning to leave IRS director is so called fired, and who does Obama pick to replace him, some one from the White House budget department. I guess Obama still wants to have control of the IRS, now that the IRS is already checking into Americans medical records. Obamacare is a tax, as stated by the Supreme Court, remember Americans a another tax on middle class, working class and small businesses, of which was pushed trough Congress by Democrats for the benefit of Democrats not tax payers.

    Maybe this was fast tracked but it takes significantly longer than 2 weeks to process a retirement through personnel. Sounds like something planned a long time before.

    It seems that the IRS leadership must have known something and didn't pass it up along the line. That can be good and bad. It would be good if it were a problem that was taken care of then. It seems that it is a bad situation because they didn't pass along the information and failed to clean up the problem.
