After revelations that IRS workers in
Cincinnati were targeting
Tea Party groups that applied for tax-exempt status, members of the
political movement plan to host what they're calling a "national town hall"
event tonight at The Farm.
Although Tea Party groups are often aligned with
Republicans, organizer George Brunemann says both political parties are at
fault for the "habitual use of the IRS as a political weapon" and must be
stopped. Brunemann says he was personally targeted by the IRS.
Republican Congressmen Steve Chabot and Brad Wenstrup are
scheduled to speak along with Jenny Beth Martin of Tea Party Patriots, Greg
Fettig of FreedomWorks, and Justin Binik-Thomas, who says he was also
singled-out by the IRS.
FOX19 will be covering the event, which begins at 7 p.m.
