Obama: IRS Chief Is Out

(Washington, DC)  --  President Obama is ordering immediate changes in response to the growing IRS scandal.  For starters, acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller has resigned.  Speaking from the White House, the President said cited "misconduct" at the IRS and called it "inexcusable."  The IRS is under fire for targeting conservative groups for audits.  Obama said new safeguards will be put in place to ensure that this type of thing does not happen again.  

Congressional Republicans are furious about the close IRS scrutiny of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status.  In an earlier news conference, GOP House Speaker John Boehner asked  --  "Who's going to jail?"  Attorney General Eric Holder has ordered a criminal investigation of the IRS scandal.  In a House hearing, Holder vowed to "follow the facts" and said those responsible will be held accountable.
