Support the Western Journalism Center against the IRS


Case History


So what?

What can I do?

It's outrageous. Unconscionable. And virtually unreported.

In 1996, the IRS launched an audit of the non-profit Western Journalism Center. Recently obtained evidence all but proves that this audit was launched because of White House influence. The Center's newspage,, is staunchly conservative in its reporting, and thus has been a thorn in the side of President Bill Clinton.

The Center, with the aid of the conservative legal foundation Judicial Watch, has filed a $20 million dollar lawsuit against the IRS. The IRS has been resisting all attempts by the Center to obtain their own case file.
