TRUE THE VOTE STATEMENT FOLLOWING IRS LAWSUIT DECISION

23rd of October 2014

HOUSTON, TX. -- October 23, 2014: True the Vote (TTV), the nation's leading voters’ rights and election integrity organization, today released this comment immediately following the decision by the U.S. Federal District Court to dismiss its lawsuit against the Internal Revenue Service.

"The Court today correctly acknowledged that the IRS targeted True the Vote because of its perceived political beliefs," True the Vote President Catherine Engelbrecht said. “Such conduct is reprehensible and should never be acceptable in a free society. Despite this critical finding, we are stunned and disappointed in the court’s ruling which nevertheless dismisses our case. We will be evaluating our legal options and will announce our intent in that regard soon.”

 

True the Vote (TTV) is an IRS-designated 501(c)(3) voters’ rights  organization, founded to inspire and equip voters for involvement at every stage of our electoral process.
