Tea Party group protests "abuse of power" outside Evansville IRS office

Posted: Updated:

Tuesday afternoon, members of the Vanderburgh County Tea Party held a protest outside the IRS office at 7409 Eagle Crest Blvd. in Evansville.

The group says they are calling for protests in front of all IRS locations across the country.

The group says they are protesting what they call "the IRS' complete abuse of power" when it was giving extra scrutiny to Tea Party and other conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status.

We have a crew on scene and we will bring you more information tonight on 14 News.
