WASHINGTON - The White House said President Barack Obama has met with Daniel
Werfel, the new acting commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service.
The Treasury Department said Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew told Werfel to take steps immediately to ensure the IRS is acting in an unbiased way.
Werfel was previously the controller of the Office of Management and Budget, a job akin to a chief financial officer. He's replacing Steven Miller, who was ousted Wednesday amid revelations that the IRS improperly singled out conservative groups for special scrutiny.
