The acting commissioner of the IRS resigned Wednesday after the agency disclosed it had targeted conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status, the Washington Post reports.
President Obama demanded the resignation of Steven T. Miller in hopes of quelling the controversy.
Obama spoke briefly but passionately about the IRS’ disclosure.
“Americans are right to be angry about it, and I’m angry about it,” he said, adding that he “will not tolerate this kind of behavior in any agency, but especially in the IRS, given the power that it has and the reach that it has.”
