Chairman Roy Nicholson says the party applied for tax exempt status in 2009, but after what the IRS put them through, the party withdrew its application.
Nicholson says IRS officials sent them letters asking invasive questions. Officials wanted copies of web pages, newsletters, expense reports, resumes, and wanted to know where the party stood on certain political issues.
Nicholson says in 2012, the party withdrew its application. He blames the IRS scandal on President Barack Obama and his administration. He says they knew about this way beforehand.
He says apologies and resignations are not enough. He wants people to go jail, and for President Obama to step down.
