Tea Party Patriots to Protest at Local IRS Offices
Tea Party Patriots will protest at local IRS Offices across the
country on May 21, 2013
Chicago, IL – Illinois Tea Party, and the Tea Party Patriots, the nation’s largest tea party organization, announced a series of protests across the country, which will take place at local IRS offices today, May 21, 2013 at noon local time. The protests are in response to the IRS’s admission that the agency has engaged in systemic harassment and targeting of conservative organizations. For the past three years, the IRS has been targeting Tea Party Patriots and other conservative tax-exempt organizations for additional scrutiny, and has singled these organizations out for audits and invasive reviews of their tax-exempt applications.
“The IRS has demonstrated the most disturbing, illegal and outrageous abuse of government power,” said Denise Cattoni, Founder of Illinois Tea Party.
Illinois Tea Party will be protesting outside many local IRS offices including Chicago, Downers Grove, Rockford, and Springfield, today, Tuesday, May 21st at 12:00 pm. Everyone who is interested in reining in the IRS’s unchecked power is welcome to join the protest.
“We demand the immediate termination or resignation of all complicit in this activity and insist Congress investigate to determine if legal charges must be brought against those involved.”
