Tea party group says IRS asked about Walker recall
MILWAUKEE — A tea party group says the Internal Revenue Service asked about its involvement in efforts to verify signatures in the effort to recall Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.
The Northeast Tarrant Tea Party of Fort Worth, Texas says IRS officials asked for extensive information about its activities, including an explanation of its involvement with Verify the Recall, which worked to confirm signatures in last year's effort to recall Walker, who eventually retained his position.
Tea Party president Julie McCarty tells the Journal Sentinel she thinks her group was unfairly targeted by the IRS. She says they're still waiting for a decision on its tax-exempt status.
The IRS is accused of improperly targeting conservative groups who were applying for tax-exempt status. The IRS in Texas did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
