NEW YORK (AP) — A former IRS examiner who expressed hatred for the agency has been sentenced to three years' probation in his conflict-of-interest case.
Dennis Lerner apologized to the government before hearing the sentence Tuesday in federal court in Manhattan.
The 60-year-old Lerner had pleaded guilty to charges that he interviewed for a new job with the German bank Commerzbank AG while negotiating a $210 million tax settlement with the bank.
The evidence against Lerner includes an email complaining that at the IRS, he "got paid next to nothing" and worked with "fools."
