CNN is reporting that a California group leads the way in suing the IRS over the recent audit practices focusing on conservative groups:
A Northern California tea party group filed the first lawsuit against the U.S. government stemming from the Internal Revenue Service targeting of conservative groups for more scrutiny as they applied for tax-exempt status.
“The IRS and its agents singled out groups like NorCal Tea Party Patriots for intensive and intrusive scrutiny, probing their members’ associates, speech, activities and beliefs,” the suit claimed on Monday.
I look forward to reviewing the Complaint soon. Certainly dozens if not hundreds of similar lawsuits will be filed in the next few weeks but, for better or worse, Californians got to their courthouse first!
