On Monday following remarks at the New York Meeting, Jenny Beth Martin, president of Tea Party Patriots said that the source of the IRS scandal could go all the way to the White House.
Tea Party Patriots recently filed a suit against the IRS asking the court for the “release of documents shedding light on the agency’s proposal for burdensome regulations for 501(c)(4) citizens groups, and the roles played by former IRS official Lois Lerner and other Administration officials in developing the regulations.”
Martin says that it has been almost a year since the Treasury Inspector General admitted that “100 percent of Tea Party groups were indeed targeted,” and that targeting continues today.
Martin went on to claim, “I think we know why it [targeting] started, because the president disagrees with us. We don’t know how high up in the White House it goes.”
