Steve King: Charities Should ‘Defy the IRS’

Steve King called for charities struggling to get 501 (c)(3) status to “defy the IRS.”

Both tea-party and pro-life groups have faced struggles in getting the IRS to give them tax-exempt status.

“If you’re a 501 (c)(3) and you’re afraid of the IRS, just go ahead and defy the IRS on that!” King declared during a speech at The Family Leader summit.

“I’ll stand there with you,” the Iowa congressman added.
