IRS Lawyer Fingered for Political Targeting Will Retire

But does it end with Carter Hull?

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.
