Reaction to the IRS targeting several conservative groups is dividing some Ohio conservatives.
Tom Zawitowski is a Tea Party activist in Portgage County and was among those wrongly investigated by the IRS. The Ohio Republican Party this week sent out a email asking supporters to donate money to help fight the IRS. Speaking on All Sides with Ann Fisher today, Zawitowski called the email, “an example of how unconnected the Ohio Republican Party is with their base.”
The rift among Republicans over the Ohio GOP's stance on major issues and its support of Gov. John Kasich is starting to look like a serious split. And some Republicans say they're ready to run away.
Tea Party leader Tom Zawistowski says he met this past weekend with the Ohio Constitution Party and is talking with others about finding a new political home for activists he calls “the force of the party”. And he says he doesn’t worry that this split is making conservatives look divided going into next year’s campaigns.
