(Newser) – Sarah Hall Ingram's career path sounds like something out of a Fox News fever dream. Her old job: Heading up the IRS' tax-exemption division during the exact stretch of time that it allegedly discriminated against Tea Party groups. Her new job: Running the IRS office handling ObamaCare. Ingram was commissioner of the non-profit office from 2009 to 2012, but left to head the Affordable Care Act office just in time to avoid the scandal, ABC News reports.

Ingram's eventual successor at the exemption office, Joseph Grant, has taken much of the heat from the scandal—he's already announced that he'll retire next month—even though he's been on the job for one week. During her four years leading the office, Ingram was awarded $ 103,390 in bonuses, the Washington Examiner reports, a sum that would require presidential approval under federal guidelines. Mitch McConnell called the bonuses "stunning, just stunning."
