Jordan statement on IRS denying Albuquerque Tea Party non-profit status
Congressman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) made the following statement regarding the decision by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to deny the Albuquerque Tea Party non-profit status after delaying its application for almost seven years as part of the IRS targeting scandal:
“After seven years of stonewalling, targeting and harassing the Albuquerque Tea Party, the IRS has yet again blocked the group’s non-profit status without any explanation. This decision is a reminder that when a federal judge recently said that targeting was still going on, he meant it.
“This is further evidence that the IRS has not changed its ways, and shows that IRS Commissioner John Koskinen continues in his dereliction of duty. Congress must move forward on impeaching him.”
