Anti-gay group claims it was target of IRS leak, announces lawsuit

https://cdn.thegavoice.com/images/stories/4-15-11/nomlogo-insert-4-25-11.gifThe Internal Revenue Service came under fire late last week after allegations that it unfairly targeted conservative political groups. Prominent Republicans promised congressional hearings and even President Obama weighed in Monday, calling the actions “outrageous.”

When it rains, it pours, apparently, for the IRS and its troubles.

The National Organization for Marriage this week announced plans to sue the IRS over claims that the tax agency stole and released its 2008 tax records, which were then leaked to the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest gay political group.
