“The beauty of our country is that we can disagree,” says Jenny Beth Martin, who is the co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots. “And you can’t use the IRS to silent citizens.”
Martin was one of about 40 protestors who gathered today outside the Internal Revenue Service’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. to protest the agency for discriminating against tea party groups seeking tax-exempt status. Protestors came with signs bearing slogans such as “Don’t Target Me Bro” and “Suspend IRS Audits.” Similar rallies were held outside IRS offices across the country. Kennedy of Reason.TV reports.
