Last week, Lois Lerner was "technically still employed," but Bloomberg's Richard Rubin reports that the former director of exempt organizations is out of there effective today.
HOWEVAH! If you thought this was the end of political gamesmanship, then you would be sorely mistaken:
“Just because Lois Lerner is retiring from the IRS does not mean the investigation is over,” Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah, the top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, said in a statement. “Far from it. In fact, there are many serious unanswered questions that must be addressed so we can get to the truth.”
Thanks, Hatch. Do let us know when you arrive in truth town.
