The IRS Scandal, Day 1132

IRS Logo 2The Hill, Oversight Panel to Vote on Resolution to Censure IRS Chief:

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is set to vote Wednesday on a resolution to censure Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen.

The vote is part of a larger effort by House Republicans against Koskinen. Many GOP lawmakers have accused him of engaging in misconduct while Congress was investigating findings that the IRS subjected conservative groups' applications for tax-exempt status to extra scrutiny. 

The House Judiciary Committee is also weighing whether Koskinen should be impeached and is holding its second hearing on the matter next week.

Censuring isn't enough action against the illegal behaviour of Kosiken, impeachment and loss of his benefits and retirement would have a enduring impact against him and as an example of what other agents in the IRS can expect as a result of being caught compromising the law.

Thank you for your continuing efforts of keeping a daily record of this national scandal.
