Three months after it became clear that the IRS started targeting conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status and after President Obama installed new leadership to try to fix the agency, dozens of groups are still awaiting a final decision or, in some cases, have withdrawn their applications out of frustration with the process.
"I was really hopeful that once attention was given to the abuse that was going on that something would be done about it," Mrs. Belsom said. "To date, we still have not been approved, and there are other groups that are pending as well. There do not seem to be any consequences for anyone involved in the IRS for what they have done. It kind of seems like things are getting swept under the rug."
