As promised, the IRS is proposing new rules to clamp down on tea party groups and other grassroots activism.
The federal agency wants to restrict voter guides, legislative scorecards, get-out-the-vote campaigns and even the voter registration activities of non-profit groups.
Critics argue the rules are meant to regulate conservative not-profits out of business.
However, True the Vote's Catherine Engelbrecht says liberal groups are allowed to continue under the guise of Obamacare.
“The left now has co-opted the Obamacare Navigator platform to use for voter registration, so that leaves groups like ours that are interested in voter engagement facing a whole new slew of laws that we're the only ones have to play by,” Engelbrecht tells KTRH News.
“They've done an end-around so that their non-profits are now largely excluded from the types of things they want to scrutinize us for,” she says.
But the fight isn't over yet.
“True the Vote has started a website called wewillnotbesilenced.org and comments are being taken by the IRS through the end of February,” says Engelbrecht.
