Tea Party activists descended on an IRS office in west St. Louis County today to protest the scandal that has engulfed the agency.
The protest came as hearings were held in Washington D.C. about the scandal in which the IRS targeted the tax exemption applications of Tea Party-affiliated groups for extra scrutiny.
According to a report from Patch partner Fox 2, the group staged their demonstration at noon at an IRS office on Town and Country Commons Drive, near the Charter Communications building. The area is located off Highway 141 just east of Chesterfield.
The IRS has formally apologized for the scandal, admitting that mistakes were made but insisting there was no political motivation. Conservative groups have called it an outrageous abuse of power and are pressing the White House and Pres. Barack Obama to provide further details on exactly what happened.
