Two more Colorado groups claim IRS discrimination

DENVER — Two more conservative political groups in Colorado say they were targeted by the Internal Revenue Service to make it hard for them to get tax exemptions.

The Coalition for a Conservative Majority and the Citizen Awareness Project join the Western Slope Conservative Alliance and the Colorado Tea Party Patriots who say they were forced to wait for official permission to operate under the tax code.

According to the Denver Post, the groups have small budgets and hold picnics and forums and they try to recruit neighbors to hear about conservative ideas.

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.
