"The IRS’s director of exempt organizations, Lois Lerner, recently made headlines for invoking the Fifth Amendment when asked to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. From 2006 to 2012, Lerner was paid a combined total of $110,035 in bonuses. Senior technical adviser Nancy Marks received $121,027 in bonuses during those same years.
Faris Fink, the senior IRS official best known for his starring role as Mr. Spock in a “Star Trek” parody at an IRS conference, received $149,506 in bonuses between 2007 and 2012. By Fink’s own admission, the lavish 2010 conference, originally reported as costing $4.1 million, could have actually cost $5 to $6 million. That same year, Fink was awarded a $30,975 bonus."
