West Michigan tea party group says it was targeted by IRS

President of Ottawa County Patriots will be part of press conference Thursday in Washington D.C.
Washington - A west Michigan tea party group said it believes its 21-month wait to receive Internal Revenue Service approval for nonprofit status is a result of the agency's admitted targeting of conservative groups. Jim Chiodo, president of the Ottawa County Patriots, said his group has been waiting since 2011 to win approval of 501(c)3 tax-exempt status.
