Obama Chooses John Koskinen as Next U.S. IRS Commissioner

President Barack Obama said he will nominate John Koskinen, former chairman of Freddie Mac, as the next Internal Revenue Service commissioner.

Koskinen will be tasked with revamping the U.S. tax agency, which has come under intense criticism for giving extra scrutiny to small-government advocacy groups as they applied for tax-exempt status.
