NJ Citizens Rally at IRS Offices Over Scrutiny

Conservative activists have gathered outside Internal Revenue Service offices across New Jersey to protest the agency’s scrutiny of conservative groups.

In Cherry Hill, about 30 people showed up Tuesday to try to raise awareness of an issue that they say has not received enough coverage.

One rang a cowbell and some held signs with phrases like “Internal Revenge Service.” Others accused President Barack Obama’s administration of trying to undermine citizens’ rights.

Some protesters declined to give their names, saying they feared that the IRS would target them.

Bill Haney, a leader of the West Jersey Tea Party group, says his organization gave up on seeking nonprofit status more than a year ago due to a request for further information from the IRS that the group found intrusive.
