But like Steven Miller, this is not a firing and therefore is not accountability.
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 Wednesday.

Grant joined the IRS in 2005.
Congressional investigators should keep his name handy.
