The Internal Revenue Service official in charge of the branch of the IRS that discriminated against pro-life advocates is now in charge of the IRS office that will oversee Obamacare compliance.

An ABC News report connects the dots:

Sarah Hall Ingram served as commissioner of the office responsible for tax-exempt organizations between 2009 and 2012. But Ingram has since left that part of the IRS and is now the director of the IRS’ Affordable Care Act office, the IRS confirmed to ABC News today.

Her successor, Joseph Grant, is taking the fall for misdeeds at the scandal-plagued unit between 2010 and 2012. During at least part of that time, Grant served as deputy commissioner of the tax-exempt unit.

Grant announced today that he would retire June 3, despite being appointed as commissioner of the tax-exempt office May 8, a week ago.

The news comes as a report today shows James Dobson, the pro-life family advocate, disclosed that he was a victim of IRS discrimination because he spoke out against pro-abortion President Barack Obama.

Yesterday, President Barack Obama addressed the massive IRS scandal this afternoon and promised it would never happen again.

“I’ll do everything in my power to make sure this never happens again,” he promised.
