IRS Cans Another Official in Political Targeting Scandal

They're still trying to confine it to Cincinnati


The Internal Revenue Service has replaced one of the officials who oversaw the agency's tax-exemption division in Cincinnati during a targeting campaign that singled out conservative groups for extra scrutiny.

An internal memo to employees on Monday said that Karen Schiller would serve as acting director of the IRS rulings and agreements for exempt organizations, replacing Holly Paz, who headed the same division during the targeting.

Paz has come under fire from Republicans, particularly from House oversight committee chairman Darrell Issa (Calif.), for attending interviews between her IRS subordinates and investigators from the inspector general's office.
