CINCINNATI, May 20, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, Citizens for Self-Governance (CSG), an organization founded by the co-founder and former National Coordinator for Tea Party Patriots, Mark Meckler, announced that CSG is assisting local groups, led by the NorCal Tea Party, in filing class action litigation which includes requests for damages against the IRS for illegal and harassing behavior in the handling and processing of their applications for non-profit status.

"We stand shoulder to shoulder with all those known and unknown who have been abused by a federal government run amok.  Instead of just playing defense, it is time for the citizens to go on offense.  We are, after all, "We the People."  And when the federal government runs amok, it is up to us reign it in.  Neither party in Congress can be relied upon to satisfactorily resolve this issue.  They created the IRS, fund the IRS, and oversee the IRS.  All of this abuse happened on their watch," said Mark Meckler, President of Citizens for Self-Governance.

Mark Meckler, President of Citizens for Self Governance will be holding a press conference tomorrow at the National Press Club in Washington DC, and will be joined by a representative of the lead plaintiff in the suit, Ginny Rapini, President of the NorCal Tea Party. For individuals or organizations interested in contributing to, or joining as a party in the lawsuit, more information is available at www.SueTheIRS.com.
