The scandal involving the IRS and conservative groups has made it to radio, as THE CHRISTIAN POST reports new allegations claim the INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE not only delayed the applications of new conservative groups, but also targeted a Christian radio group, FAMILY TALK ACTION.
In SEPTEMBER 2011, Dr. JAMES DOBSON's FAMILY TALK ACTION CORPORATION, filed a Form 1024 with the IRS requesting 501(c)(4) status.
Regarding the filing by their attorney, FAMILY TALK Dir./Apologetics ALEX MCFARLAND told the POST, "The FAMILY TALK application was every bit as compliant as the ones he'd filled out in the past." After waiting a year, "the attorney called in DECEMBER 2012, then several times in JANUARY and FEBRUARY" of this year.
On MARCH 19th, "the reviewing agent, R. MEDLEY, finally returned his call. MEDLEY informed him that the form would likely be denied due to its political views," writes the POST.
