Ohio Tea Party Members Going To D.C.

Some Ohio conservative activists who say they were targeted by the Internal Revenue Service when they applied for tax-exempt status are heading to Washington as federal investigations widen.

The Justice Department is opening a criminal probe, and several congressional hearings are planned. Several Ohioans plan to attend a Washington news conference Thursday and sit in on a House Ways and Means Committee hearing Friday. They include leaders of the Portage County and Liberty Township tea parties.
