New information has emerged regarding the IRS's alleged
targeting of conservative groups seeking tax exempt status.
Just days following the controversy surrounding the person
leading the investigation into the agency, multiple reports have emerged from
Washington DC suggesting that there will be no criminal charges.
One group in particular has been waiting for tax exempt
status from the IRS for years. The paperwork has been stalled. Now, the group
is part of a civil lawsuit, the only justice they feel they will get.
Susan McLaughlin has a stack of paperwork about Liberty
Township TEA party's fight to get tax exempt status.
"We've got two sets of questions and we have heard
nothing back since then," said McLaughlin.
Now that group is part of a pending civil suit against the
IRS and she says she's not surprised about reports out of DC saying there will
be no criminal charges in the IRS scandal.
"They haven't talked to the victims. There's no
investigation. Who's investigating?" she said.
FOX19 obtained a statement from Maryland congressman Elijah
Cummings, the top Democrat in the House Oversight Committee.
"I cannot speak to the FBI's investigation, but our
committee has conducted a thorough investigation that involved reviewing
hundreds of thousands of pages of documents and interviewing more than 30 IRS
employees across the agency, and we have found no evidence of political
motivation," Cummigs said.
McLaughlin is disappointed.
"The justice system is part of the executive
branch. They follow orders, from the chief executive's office, and they do what
they are told," she said.
McLaughlin tells FOX19 that her group is still functioning,
just without tax exempt status. The civil case in pending.
