True The Vote Founder to Congress: "I Will Not Retreat. I Will Not Surrender. I Refuse To Be Intimidated"Submitted by shrader on Fri, 02/07/2014 - 20:06
This lady is awesome, in testimony on coordinated federal government intimidation, after filing as a tax exempt group.
Update: One member of the impressive panel, a former IRS attorney, says he has evidence of illegality at the highest levels of the IRS. Ms. Engelbrecht and her capable attorney Cleta Mitchell have formally called for an ethics investigation into Elijah Cummings, the ranking minority member, even against the earlier advice of the Republican chair. Cummings tried to paint the activities of True the Vote, as racially biased, using a bogus report. A firey hearing.
In the absence of any investigation by the FBI, and a seemingly paralyzed oversight committee, at least a few impressive lawyers are themselves suing on behalf of tea party groups. It looks like there will be more pressure and revelation.
