Citizens For A Strong NH - Suing the IRS 

 

CSNH is Suing the IRS for Failure to Release Records Between the
IRS and Senator Shaheen and
Rep. Shea-Porter


Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire will be represented by the American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ)
 

 

(October 30, 2014) - Today, the American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ) filed a federal lawsuit in New Hampshire against the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) on behalf of Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire, claiming the IRS is unlawfully delaying the release of records between the IRS and U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) who demanded the IRS investigate conservative organizations for engaging in "political activities."


The lawsuit requests the federal court to order the IRS to release the records. 
Led by Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow, the American Center for Law & Justice is headquartered in Washington, D.C.


The full release, as well as a quote from Jay Sekulow, can be seen here.

Derek Dufresne, Spokesman for Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire, released the following statement:

"Senator Shaheen and Congresswoman Shea-Porter have made a career out of hiding from Granite State families. While their constituents are well aware of their refusal to hold town hall meetings, in order to further isolate themselves, these two elected officials have also called on the IRS to target organizations like ours to hinder our ability to highlight their failed records in Washington.    

"For months, the IRS has been stalling and surpassing deadline after deadline in order to delay the release of correspondences between their office and Senator Shaheen and Congresswoman Shea-Porter. Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire has been more than patient waiting for a response, but at this point, we believe that the only means to gain these documents is through litigation. We look forward to working with the American Center for Law & Justice and appreciate their willingness to represent our organization in such an important case."
