As part of the U.S. Senate Finance Committee’s investigation into alleged Internal Revenue Service (IRS) harassment of Tea Party and other conservative organizations, Idaho Senator Mike Crapo has submitted documents and testimony from a Coeur d’Alene-area couple. Crapo will meet Friday with Phil and Leslie Damiano, of Hayden Lake, who submitted the documents, during a special meeting of the Panhandle Pachyderm Club in Post Falls. The meeting at Templin’s Red Lion Inn is free and open to the public. The Damianos submitted copies of letters written to their Tea Party Patriots of North Idaho group from the IRS. The group had applied for 503 (c) (4) status with the IRS on the recommendation of their CPA who stated that the group clearly fit into the description of the status. The letters asked seriously invasive questions about the group, speakers and donors/News Release, U.S. Sen. Mike Crapo's office. More here.
