The IRS targeted tea party, conservative, pro-life, pro-Israel and constitutional groups… anyone seeing a pattern here?
CHICAGO, May 15, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A pro-life legal firm is speaking out against what it perceives as blatant bias by the Internal Revenue Service.
The Thomas More Society, a Chicago-based public interest law firm, says recent cases they have handled support mounting accusations that demonstrate the IRS’s abuse of pro-life organizations, in addition to those identified as ‘tea party’, ‘patriot’, or ‘government spending’ groups. Outrage spurred by recent revelations of IRS discrimination against these groups has also led the Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus to announce a full investigation into the matter. […]
In another similar case, the IRS withheld approval of an application for charitable tax-exempt recognition of Christian Voices for Life, questioning the group’s involvement with “40 Days for Life” and “Life Chain” events. The Fort Bend County, Texas, organization was subjected to repeated and lengthy unconstitutional requests for information about the viewpoint and content of its educational communications, volunteer prayer vigils, and other protected activities.
