On Tuesday, U.S. Senator John Thune (R-SD) sent aletter to Attorney General Eric Holder and Treasury Secretary Jack Lew questioning the wisdom of placing Sarah Hall Ingram, the embattled former Internal Revenue Service (IRS) commissioner for tax-exempt groups, in charge of Obamacare.

“Given Ms. Hall Ingram’s position as commissioner of the IRS Tax Exempt and Government Entities Division when the targeting of certain groups began, please confirm whether Ms. Hall Ingram is a subject of the Department of Justice’s investigation into whether IRS employees broke criminal laws by singling out conservative groups for special review and inappropriate questions,” wrote Thune.

The South Dakota senator also requested that the IRS halt the implementation or enforcement of any regulations that may have been drafted under Ingram.
