A year after a scorching audit revealed that the Internal Revenue Service targeted tea party groups for intrusive scrutiny, and despite an effort to clean house at the agency, many of those groups are still awaiting approval for tax-exempt status.
The American Center for Law and Justice amended its lawsuit in federal court against the Internal Revenue Service to add another 16 tea party and conservative groups on its plaintiff list — bringing the total of aggrieved to 41.
