IRS director replaced

ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON — A day after she refused to answer questions at a congressional hearing, Lois Lerner has been replaced as director the Internal Revenue Service division that oversaw agents who targeted tea party groups.

Danny Werfel, the agency’s new acting commissioner, told IRS employees in an email today that he has selected a new acting head of the division.

Ken Corbin will be the acting director of the agency’s exempt organizations division. Corbin is currently deputy director of submission processing in the wage and investment division.

A congressional aide said Lerner has been placed on administrative leave. The aide spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss a personnel matter.
