The IRS scandal took a new turn Tuesday morning, as members of the House Ways and Means Committee heard testimony from leaders of Tea Party and conservative organizations who were targeted by the agency.
The testimony was opened by Kevin Kookogey, Founder and President of Linchpins of Liberty, who spoke about how the IRS’s unfair treatment of his application for non-profit status had suppressed his group’s activity. He urged Congress to “act with the moral resolve to check the power of the executive branch.”
Diane Belsom of the Laurens County Tea Party in South Carolina detailed the process through which her organization had attempted to comply with the IRS’s comically exhaustive questions, including inquiries about social media sites and any potential remarks by guest speakers at events about upcoming elections.
