Colorado tea party groups claim discrimination

DENVER — At least two Colorado tea party groups believe they were caught up in a politically targeted campaign by the Internal Revenue Service to make it hard for them to get tax exemptions.

According to the Denver Post, the Western Slope Conservative Alliance and the Colorado Tea Party Patriots applied nonprofit status in 2010. More than two years later, both groups are waiting for official permission to operate under the tax code.

The U.S. Treasury Department’s Inspector General has issued a report that found that for more than 18 months, the IRS specifically targeted conservative groups. The IRS has launched a criminal investigation.
