Tea Party Leader: When IRS Asked For Copies of Speeches & Names of Employers We Withdrew Our Application (Video)
Peter Riehm, chairman of the Common Sense Campaign, a conservative group, was on with Your World with Neal Cavuto today. Riehm told Neal that his organization withdrew their application for tax exempt status after the IRS asked for copies of all speeches and the board members’ employers.
This is pure thuggery, folks.
The Common Sense campaign was one of the dozens of groups that withdrew their applications after years of harassment by the Obama IRS.
The Obama administration effectively shut down the Tea Party by using illegal tactics like this during the 2012 election.
