More paid summer vacations for IRS agents caught doing wrong. Yup, this is how Barack Obama holds the IRS accountable.
The IRS has placed two top official in charge of implementing Obamacare on administrative leave after it was discovered he had accepted $1,162 in free food and other items during a 2010 conference. The same 2010 conference that we have seen ridiculous videos of line dancing and other wasteful spending of tax payer money. The IRS officials have been placed on administrative leave, with pay of course. Thus, these two IRS officials, along with Lois Lerner now have a paid summer vacation. Way to hold them accountable.
So let’s get this straight, we have an IRS scandal of Biblical proportions of a government agency that targeted conservative groups in a political manner and all we have to show for it is Lois Lerner on paid vacation and two other IRS officials place on administrative leave for taking free food? WTF!!! Not even close folks. People need to go to jail for this and its not about “free food”.
Sources say a key official in charge of overseeing health reform implementation, as well as another staffer, have been put on leave for accepting more than $1,000 in free meals and other items at a 2010 conference.

In a statement, the IRS confirmed that two employees have been placed on administrative leave — which is paid — and have begun the process of removing them.
“[Acting IRS Director] Danny Werfel learned of the situation last night and immediately asked his leadership team to take action. He has also been in contact with key congressional committees about the situation,” the service said in the statement.
“When I came to IRS, part of my job was to hold people accountable,” Werfel said. “There was clearly inappropriate behavior involved in this situation, and immediate action is needed.”
The IRS informed congressional staff investigating the agency that Fred Schindler had been put on leave for accepting the gifts. A second unnamed staffer in the division was also put on leave for accepting the gifts, the aides said.
Weasel Zippers nails it … Forget rogue employees, the IRS is a rogue agency!!!
