Second Top IRS Official To Leave Retire Amid Massive Scandal – Was Only in Position for 8 DAYS!

A second top IRS official resigned today amid the growing scandal inside the agency.  Joseph Grant, the acting commissioner of the Tax Exempt and Government Entities Division, announced he would leave the agency.


Over five hundred groups have claimed harassment from the Obama IRS.
63% of those groups either withdrew applications or are still waiting for the Obama IRS to grant them non-profit status.

Newser reported:

As second top Internal Revenue Service official has announced plans to leave the agency amid the controversy over the targeting of tea party groups.

An internal IRS memo says Joseph Grant, commissioner of the agency’s tax exempt and government entities division, will retire June 3. Grant joins Steven Miller, who was forced to resign as acting IRS commissioner on Wednesday.

As part of his duties, Grant oversaw the IRS division that targeted tea party groups for additional scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status.

Grant joined the IRS in 2005.

UPDATE: He’s not fired. He’s retiring.

UPDATE: FOX News reported that Joseph Grant was only in his position for 8 days! Grant was promoted to deputy director of the IRS’ tax exempt and government entities division on May 8 — just eight days ago.

This is all window dressing, folks.

“I’m so angry that I’m firing the guy who wasn’t in charge when this happened, that has two weeks to go in the job, while I promote the person that was in charge. I can fool you suckers every time.”
