The IRS has made another staff change following the targeting scandal involving tea party and other conservative groups, according to a memo obtained by Politico
The memo from Heather Maloy, the new deputy commissioner for services and enforcement, announced last Friday that Karen Schiller is replacing Holly Paz as director of the agency's rulings and agreements division.
The memo made no reference to the reasons behind the change, nor did it indicate whether Paz had been fired, placed on administrative leave, or moved to another position.
But according to Politico, Paz was one of the IRS staffers who was interviewed by House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa during hearings on the targeting scandal. Issa was disturbed to learn that she had sat in on interviews that the agency's inspector general had with employees during the internal investigation into whether conservative groups were wrongly singled out for extra scrutiny by a division in Cincinnati.
Politico reported that Paz assumed her position after Lois Lerner, the IRS official at the center of the controversy who has been placed on administrative leave, was hired as director of the division that oversees tax-exempt organizations.
