Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Commissioner John Koskinen is the people’s choice for “Porker of the Year,” Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) announced Monday.
Koskinen won the worst-in-Washington recognition for repeatedly stonewalling congressional investigations and allowing IRS employees to wipe hard drives that were under court preservation orders, among other things. Republican members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform are calling for Koskinen’s impeachment.
Koskinen took 43 percent of the vote in a six-candidate pool during CAGW’s annual competition.
“Commissioner Koskinen’s extensive and dubious track record of evasive, incompetent, and hostile behavior to taxpayers and their representatives has been unmistakable and unacceptable,” CAGW President Tom Schatz said in a news release. “It is long past time that Commissioner Koskinen be replaced with an individual who respects taxpayers and their interests.”
