Twenty-five conservative and Tea Party groups have filed suit against the Internal Revenue Service, Attorney General Eric Holder and top IRS officials, alleging that the Obama administration unlawfully targeted the groups because of their political beliefs and obstructed their applications for tax-exempt status.
“The IRS and the federal government are not going to get away with this unlawful targeting of conservative groups,” said Jay Sekulow, chief counsel of the American Center for Law and Justice, a conservative public interest law firm that filed the federal lawsuit on behalf of the groups in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday. "The lawsuit sends a very powerful message to the IRA and the Obama Administration – including the White House: Americans are not going to be bullied and intimidated by our government.”
