President Barack Obama delivered a brief statement on the IRS scandal this afternoon. He announced that Treasury Secretary Jack Lew had requested and received the resignation of Steven Miller, acting commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service. He also warned Republicans not to politicize the scandal, which has government abusing Americans due to their political beliefs at its very heart.
Obama took no questions from the media.
He did manage to finally stop using “if” in connection with the IRS scandal.
Update: Miller’s resignation is a sham.
