The largest Tea Party group in the country said Monday an apology from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for targeting conservative organizations isn’t enough.
“A simple apology on a conference call is not enough by a long shot,” Jenny Beth Martin, co-founder of the Tea Party Patriots, told Fox News. “Congress needs to investigate this and find out how many more lies the IRS is telling.”
Keli Carender, the group’s national coordinator, echoed that sentiment.
“This is chilling,” she told CNN. “This is what happens in other countries when government agencies target and harass particular groups based on their ideology. That is deserving of so much more than just a mere apology.”
