Instead of being reprimanded, one of the so-called “rogue” operatives at the Cincinnati IRS office is getting a big promotion.
Expressing his “anger” in May when the IRS targeting scandal broke, President Obama promised to “hold the responsible parties accountable” at the IRS. On the heels of that claim, Obama’s IRS chief called the guilty IRS operatives “rogue” employees.
From such rhetoric one might expect heads to roll at the IRS.
Yet, now, one of those “rogue” IRS officials, Exempt Organization Specialist Stephen Seok , is getting a new job. Instead of a mere department specialist, now Seok is being promoted to “supervisor IRS agent.”
It was Seok whose name appeared on many of the threatening letters sent to Tea Party and conservative groups seeking official tax status with the IRS previous to and during the 2012 presidential election cycle.
Seok isn’t the only “rogue” IRS operative being given plaudits instead of being “held accountable,” as the President sternly claimed.
Earlier in May reporters began to realize that even after her department had been found guilty of harassing those with political ideals opposed to the President’s, IRS official Lois Lerner–the one who admitted that the IRS was in the wrong who admitted the IRS had acted wrongly–was given an important new job as chief of Obama’s healthcare enforcement department at the taxing agency.*
That’s keeping them on their toes, Obama!
*Note: Lerner has recently been put on administrative leave, so her new Obamacare job is on hold for now.
