WETUMPKA, AL (WSFA) –
Disappointment from the Wetumpka Tea Party in the findings of a US Justice Department investigation.
IRS officials will not face criminal charges, in the wake of an IRS scandal. IRS official Lois Lerner and others were accused of singling out political groups and delaying their applications for tax-exempt status.
The Wetumpka Tea Party was one of those groups and their leader ultimately testified before congress.
Becky Gerritson told Congress in 2013 that what the IRS did to her tea party group was un-American, and the Justice Department’s decision released Friday, did little to change that sentiment.
“I think the American people are being completely disregarded and our government is just running over us,” said Gerritson.
