Obama’s new nominee to head the IRS rewards bad IRS employees with paid vacation

Two days ago I made this post:

Obama’s new nominee to head the IRS has already proven that he is incompetent for the job

Considering how the IRS wasted all that money on luxury hotel rooms and worthless speeches, Werfel really has some nerve asking Congress for more money.

By proposing to reward wasteful spending with a budget increase, Werfel has already proven that he is incompetent to head the IRS.

The fact that Obama would nominate such an incompetent person does not surprise me one bit.

Now I have some new information. Politico reports:

Acting IRS Commissioner Daniel Werfel is placing two officials — including a top staffer implementing the health care law — on administrative leave for violating government ethics rules at a 2010 conference.

“When I came to IRS, part of my job was to hold people accountable,” Werfel said in a statement Wednesday. “There was clearly inappropriate behavior in this situation and immediate action is needed.”

Werfel didn’t specify which staff members he disciplined but congressional sources tell POLITICO one official is Fred Schindler, the director of implementation oversight at the IRS Affordable Care Act office. The other is Donald Toda, a California-based employee.

The staffers received $1,100 in free food and other items at the conference, the sources said.

Suspended employees are often paid during suspension

So for their bad behavior, they get a paid vacation.

By comparison, President Reagan fired 11,359 air-traffic controllers who had been illegally striking.
