Article Photos: Tea party groups call IRS process 'nightmare' 2/2

In this May 14, 2013 photo, Tom Zawistowki, founder of the nonprofit Ohio Liberty Coalition, one of the region’s largest groups affiliated with the national tea party movement, poses with a binder of documents he gave to the IRS, in Kent, Ohio. For years, Ohio Liberty Coalition would raise thousands of dollars to bus activists to rallies, run phone banks, rent a tent at a local fair, and knock on roughly 40,000 doors across Ohio to challenge the president and his fellow Democrats in the 2012 elections. All the while, the organization was locked in a battle with the nation’s tax enforcement agency over whether it should be granted tax-exempt status. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak)
