IRS Lawyer Fingered for Political Targeting Will Retire

Carter Hull, the Washington-based IRS lawyer who oversaw targeting of conservative groups beginning in 2010, will retire this summer.

Hull was fingered in interviews with two IRS employees as the overseer of the agency’s improper targeting of conservative groups beginning in 2010.

“I was essentially a front person, because I had no autonomy or no authority to act on [applications] without Carter Hull’s influence or input,” Elizabeth Hofacre, an employee of the IRS’ Cincinnati office, told congressional investigators, according to Hofacre’s interview with congressional investigators.

    Hell, he probably got a performance bonus for 2010 through 2013 and now he'll retire with full benefits. And he'll probably get a very off the record att-a-boy from the President personally.

    Yet another big FU from this administration and the IRS to the citizen's off the country.
