One Head Rolls...

A sacrificial lamb? Mr. Miller was planning to retire anyway. The targeting of Tea Party Groups by the IRS was a political response to the effectiveness of conservative groups in the 2010 election. The "most transparent administration" in history is also the most corrupt.

"President Obama announced Wednesday night that the acting commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service had been ousted after disclosures that the agency gave special scrutiny to conservative groups...

Speaking in the White House’s formal East Room, Mr. Obama said Treasury Secretary Jacob J. Lew had asked for and accepted the resignation of the acting commissioner, Steven Miller, who as deputy commissioner was aware of the agency’s efforts to demand more information from conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status in early 2012."
