Julia Pierson, Director of Secret Service, Resigns In Wake of Embarrassing Disclosures About Agency's Lapses

The wheels of Obama's bus are tall, and roll over obstacles easily.

Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson said he accepted her resignation and he named Deputy Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to lead an investigation into the Sept. 19 incident in which authorities say Omar Gonzalez scaled the White House fence, made it into the executive mansion and overpowered an officer before being subdued by a second officer.

Mr. Johnson also said hes convening a panel of independent experts to report back on changes needed at the troubled Secret Service.

...

She was the first female director of the elite security service.

The #WarOnWomen is calling from inside the house.

(This isn't my joke -- a commenter used it years ago, for some other similar purpose.)

More: At Hot Air, Josh Earnest just defended her this morning.

More importantly: the White House has agreed to an "independent" investigation into the Secret Service's lapses.

I guess on the theory an agency cannot investigate itself.


So here's my question:

When will the White House agree to an independent investigation of the IRS?
