2nd IRS Official to Leave Amid Tea Party Scandal

Heads are rolling at the IRS!!!
As second top Internal Revenue Service official has announced plans to leave the agency amid the controversy over the targeting of tea party groups.
An internal IRS memo says Joseph Grant, commissioner of the agency’s tax exempt and government entities division, will retire June 3. Grant joins Steven Miller, who was forced to resign as acting IRS commissioner on May 15th.
As part of his duties, Grant oversaw the IRS division that targeted tea party groups for additional scrutiny when they applied for tax-exempt status.
Grant joined the IRS in 2005.
Lets not fool ourselves, we know the government has been targeting groups for decades. I won't be one of these guys acting surprised. This will not be the last time that the IRS targets an organization. Please be open-minded and listen to both sides of the story. Both political parties are equally corrupt.
