WASHINGTON D.C. (WTVB) - The Ottawa County Patriots say they were among the Tea Party groups that received extra scrutiny from the Internal Revenue Service during the 2012 election cycle. The scandal has resulted in two top IRS officials losing their jobs after agents admitted they singled out Tea Party-associated organizations applying for tax-exempt status. Ottawa County Patriots president Jim Chiodo took part in a press conference yesterday in Washington, DC with Republican Congressman Bill Huizenga of Zeeland, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann of Minnesota and U.S. Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky.
