Lois Lerner Now on Administrative Leave

Lois Lerner, the official at the center of the IRS scandal, has been put on administrative leave.

The Washington Post is reporting:

Lois Lerner, the director of the tax-exempt organizations division at the Internal Revenue Service, has been placed on administrative leave, sources in Congress and the administration confirm. 

Federal workers are given pay and benefits when put on administrative leave.

Acting IRS Commissioner Daniel Werfel has selected Ken Corbin as the acting director, of the exempt organizations division. Corbin is currently the deputy director of the submission processing, wage and investment division.

Administrative leave is not anywhere near the same as firing. Then again since Lerner is a career employee, it’s practically impossible to fire her. Either way, I don’t think this will deter Darrell Issa from dragging her back to another hearing.
