In response to A_Concerned_Citizen's comment:
Here's the interesting thing, the majority of the key players joined the IRS during Bush administration.
Lois Lerner: Oversaw tax-exempt groups at the IRS, started at the IRS in 2001.
Douglas Shulman: The former IRS commissioner was appointed by George W. Bush.
Steven Miller: The acting IRS commissioner since November and was the first to announce his resignation at the behest of President Obama on Wednesday.
Joseph Grant: Commissioner of the IRS’ tax exempt and government entities division, joined the IRS in 2005
J. Russell George: The Treasury inspector general for the tax administration, was appointed in 2004 by then-President George W. Bush.
Daniel Werfel: President Obama said Thursday that he would assign Werfel, who’s currently the controller of the White House Office of Management and Budget, as his new acting IRS Commissioner. Werfel served under former President George W. Bush on the Federal Accounting and Standards Advisory Board.
You do understand none of that matters right?
If, I take a job running a company say the size of Exxon/Mobil and 4 years later they find that during my tenure things have went really wrong. Do I get to say: wait I didnt know anything about that aspect of the company and those dept heads were there before me so, I have nothing to do with it?
