This might hurt: Former director of scandal-ridden IRS unit now heading agency’s Obamacare office

When the president hopped on stage yesterday evening to announce that acting IRS commissioner Steven Miller would be spending more time with his family, it didn’t take long for people to realize that 1) Miller was leaving anyway and 2) he was appointed to the post after the scandalous activities noted in the inspector general’s report were set in action. So what happened to the person who actually was in charge of the tax-exempt unit when the IRS was targeting conservative groups?

From ABC News:

The Internal Revenue Service official in charge of the tax-exempt organizations at the time when the unit targeted tea party groups now runs the IRS office responsible for the health care legislation.

Sarah Hall Ingram served as commissioner of the office responsible for tax-exempt organizations between 2009 and 2012. But Ingram has since left that part of the IRS and is now the directorof the IRS’ Affordable Care Act office, the IRS confirmed to ABC News today.

Yesterday, Obama said that Americans were “right to be angry” about IRS harassment of conservatives, and news that Hall Ingram has her hands deep in Obamacare enforcement isn’t making people any happier.

    Outrageous!!! We must elect Republicans to gain control of the Senate in 2014.

    • Clayton Grant

      I’m going to sign-out, then sign-on in my wife’s name just to give you another ^vote!

    • Michael Anderson (WB)

      We need to vote for people who will defund the IRS. Then if they don’t we kick them out.

      The IRS does not need to exist in it’s present form. It holds unconstitutional courts and seizes property in violation of the constitution. It is time for it to be dissolved, or at least neutered.

  • Clayton Grant

    A lot of people need to answer questions and a few need to go to jail. Let’s start with Ms. Ingram.

  • littleones

    I can’t believe they get away with this $hit

  • Jeremy

    I would say I am shocked but,with the losers in this administration this is what daily operations are like.

  • stuckinIL4now

    There they go again–failing upwards. It’s the MO of the Obamuh SADministration: the more sinister and incompetent you are, the higher up you go.

    • Kim

      I have nothing to contribute to this conversation, other than that stuckinIL4now is my exact thought and situation..

  • nc

    Remember the good old days when sex scandals were “resume enhancements” for Democrats? Well, now it seems just plain old scandals will do the trick.

  • Michael

    So in other words, actual oBamaCare enforcement efforts will be directed at oBama’s perceived enemies, while his union friends and businesses will skate.

    Looks like Pelosi pumped raw sewerage back into that swamp she drained in 2006.

    • Garth Haycock

      Pelosi is the sewage in that swamp.

      • Secede

        She’s the tvrd in the punchbowl

  • Rich

    I’m not even shocked anymore.

  • tredglx

    I miss the country I enlisted in the USAF to defend.

  • JustLikeAnimals

    Two words: Stunningly stupid.

  • Pam

    This is insane!!!! Perhaps we should have them all jailed for the safe keeping.

  • Frank Drebin

    Not unlike the Susan Rice saga. This is precisely the type of ‘team player’ the administration is looking to promote.

  • Doc3

    Is that the Church Lady?

    • Im_Done

      YES! I kept waiting for…..

      “Could it beeeeeee Satan??”

      At least I’m not the only one who added nothing to this conversation, but couldn’t get that out of my head..LOL

  • ObamaFail

    So will she screw over enemies of the Obama socialist agenda using Obamacare like she did IRS? Obama needs to be punished with impeachment for his rewarding of people screwing over the American people.

  • teamfrazzled

    I am so angry! But the perfect way for him to show the depths of contempt he has for the people of this nation. It also puts to lie any claim he didn’t know. What a lying POS.

  • bidentime

    Up until the last five years I’d of thought this f*cking unbelievable.

  • VotingForZombieReagan2016

    Why is every woman in the Administration butt-ugly?

    • Squirrel!

      I’m a woman and even I thought the same and appreciate you for making the comment!

      • VotingForZombieReagan2016

        I’m female as well – but it’s way too obvious to deny – these lefty ladies are frightening!

    • trixiewoobeans

      She looks like Ted Bundy in (semi) drag!!!

      • Secede

        Ted Bundy was more decent…

  • Joseph Blosch

    The Obama regime is using the Obamacare office like it used the IRS, seemingly. They no longer need the IRS with the last election over. So, they move his troops to the Obamacare office where he can target the business groups.

  • Squirrel!

    Sounds like another promotion for someone who has served Obama well. Please, please let these people fall!!

  • avid_reader

    Something tells me she will be leaving the IRS in the next week or so “to spend more time with her family.”

    • effinayright

      Judging from her appearance, her “family” consists of fellow GLBTG misfits.

      Is it too much to ask for ordinary main-stream Americans to be governed by at-least-quasi-normal people?

    • TocksNedlog

      Don’t hold your breath on that one.

  • camnpat

    That’s great. She used the tax exempt office to intimidate out of the mainstream. Not, under the umbrella of Obamacare, she will have an open excuse to intimidate people for not having the “proper” coverage, whether you are an organization, business, or individual.

    My husband and I are considering suing the IRS for denying him an abatement last year. We consider that it is possible that he was targeted because he works for a Christian company… (and I am a very vocal conservative. Have I been monitored online?)

    We are considering this out of sheer principle. Relief granted by the IRS is determined by someone and with recent reports, we have a reason to believe that my husband was discriminated against by that someone.

    Now really, I try to make myself feel better by wanting to believe this is not accurate, but with what I’ve come to expect of our govt, I can’t dismiss it.

    The IRS has left the door wide open for litigation. It needs to be abolished and a flat tax should be implemented.

    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

      ANOTHER PREDICTION:Commercials will start airing for Law firms (probably in cahoots with KING FINK OBAMA, Billary, etc.) advertising for anyone who wants to sue the admin over this debocle; The Lawyers will get rich, and donate their “earnings” to another DeomCommie somewhere, while the victims get pennies on the dollar (subject to taxation, under this admin. Keep your eyes open.. #RightWard Jawamax 8<{D}

      • 1972patriot

        I completely agree… I had speculated that Obama had a financial interest in gun sales, too.

    Alynsky accolites ring Obama – they do his bidding or what they think is good for the ideology for the cause. The ends justify the means. Classic leftist thinking. Blame the youth vote , Blame the latino vote , blame the female vote , blame the stupid white metro sexual beta male leftards of the sirota type blame the GOP ers who didn’t vote. Impeach them or vote them out!

    PREDICTION:Steven Miller, through the gracious audacity of the KING FINK DICTATOR IN CHIEF, will do a “MacArthur” (“I shall return..”) somewhere in the administration.. I further predict that under Sarah Ingram, OBAMACARE will sink in fifteen minutes, like the Lusitania. #RightWard Jawamax 8<{D}

    profiling and persecution of conservatives are still very much in full force. these people are full of hate

    NOW—tell us potus did not know IRS would be “investigating” or “single out” US Citizens when he announced “IRS will ENFORCE Affordable Care Act”??? This is legalese for “go get ’em boys”!!! Appointing the IRS as “ENFORCER” –put all US citizens in the cross-hairs!! NOW TELL US again: Mr. Obama, just when did you know IRS was singling out individuals?? Here come the black helicopters!! By the way; HHS Sec. K. Sebelius’ activities are illegal and against US Regulations and she continues to avoid notice??? Hey Congress–what is up with allowing her to break the Regs.?? She is a tax payer paid gov’t employee–as is the IRS employees!! Gov’t employees paid by tax payer (you & me) do not have authority to solicit funds for gov’t policies–that is a crime!! If I did what she is doing– I would be in Leavenworth Prison!!

  • W Randall

    In the picture they are circulating of Ingram, she looks like a man dressed as a woman in a SNL skit and just like SNL it’s not the least bit funny anymore…maybe NBC is behind the whole scandal!
