Two IRS employees have been placed on administrative leave for violating ethics rules at a conference in 2010, according to Politico:
Werfel didn’t specify which staff members he disciplined but congressional sources tell POLITICO one official is Fred Schindler, the director of implementation oversight at the IRS Affordable Care Act office. The other is Donald Toda, a California-based employee.
The staffers received $1,100 in free food and other items at the conference, the sources said.
The news comes ahead of a House Oversight and Reform Committee hearing tomorrow on a report from Chairman Darrell Issa that the IRS wasted taxpayer money on conference expenses.
