‘Rogue’ IRS Agent Tax-Exempt Organization Specialist Stephen Seok Who Wrote Threatening Letters to Tea Party Groups gets promotion to “supervisor IRS agent”
Didn’t President Barack Obama promise to hold accountable those at the Internal Revenue Service involved in the targeting of conservative groups? Guess not.
From the Washington Examiner, one time Tax-Exempt Organization Specialist Stephen Seok who signed many of the intimidating letters sent to conservative nonprofits has now been promoted to “supervisor IRS agent.” What a joke. The Cincinnati IRS office had no comment and referred all inquiries to the Washington office. These so-called “rouge” agents are not being punished, in fact, they appear to be rewarded for their actions. If Obama was sincere at all, heads would have been rolling left and right at the IRS. Sorry, but his feigned outrage is nothing more than insincere lip service.
Hmm, I thought Obama said the actions of the IRS were inexcusable and he would not tolerate it? Tolerate it? It was Rewarded, who is he kidding?
President Obama may have promised “to hold the responsible parties accountable” for the Internal Revenue Service targeting of conservative non-profit groups, but one of the agents at the center of the scandal was recently promoted, an IRS source tells The Washington Examiner.
Through 2012, then-Exempt Organization Specialist Stephen Seok signed many of the intimidating letters sent to conservative nonprofits. For example, this January 2012 letter sent to the Richmond Tea Party demanded the date, time and location of all group events, as well as copies of all handouts provided at the events, and the names and credentials of all organizers. Seok also demanded the names of all speakers and the contents of the speeches they made.
According to WXIX-TV/Fox 19 in Cincinnati, Seok is no longer an exempt organization specialist. He has since been promoted to “supervisor IRS agent.”
