Clinton Crony Still Running IRS
It's been well documented and widely discussed as to the extent that the Clinton gang used the IRS to attack anyone who was critical of them. This was a very real abuse of power, with which I have had very personal experience.
While many of us were able to breathe a sigh of relief on January 20 that things would be changing for the better, that isn't the case. For various reasons, Bush 43 allowed many of the Clinton appointed agency heads to remain in place. One of these is IRS Commissioner Charles Rossotti. He allowed his agency to be used as a political weapon and has shown other lapses of ethical standards that, while very mild in comparison to the multitude of crimes committed by the Clintons, are not up to the standards we expect of the Bush family.
There is a good recap of this situation in this article from Insight Magazine.
