Tea Party group sues IRS

NorCal Tea Party Patriots files first lawsuit related to agency’s scrutiny of conservative groups

A little more than a week after the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) apologized for scrutinizing conservative groups that applied for tax-exempt status, a California-based Tea Party group has filed the first lawsuit against the agency. The NorCal Tea Party Patriots are accusing the IRS of violating the group’s constitutional rights due to the “intensive and intrusive scrutiny” the agency applied to its tax-exempt application.
