More names have been added to a lawsuit over alleged targeting of political groups by the IRS.

Filing the lawsuit is 'True the Vote,' a self-proclaimed, non-partisan charity from Texas who says its mission is to observe and promote better compliance with election laws and procedures.

The lawsuit was originally filed in June and originally named four Cincinnati workers. True the Vote has now added IRS Chief Counsel William Wilkins and five other ranking officials, including Cincinnati workers Holly Paz and Cindy Thomas.

True the Vote claims IRS employees deliberately delayed the road to tax exempt status.

Their timeline of events:

  • February 15th, 2011: Cincinnati Exempt Organization Specialist Susan Maloney asks for more information in the form of 11 additional inquiries.
  • March 7th and 8th, 2011: True the Vote provides that information.
  • October 12th, 2011: Cincinnati Exempt Organization Specialist Ronald Bell says the application has been forwarded to the IRS' Washington D.C. office for additional review.
  • February 8th, 2012: Cincinnati Exempt Organization Specialist  Janine Estes asks for even more information( At least 119 distinct inquiries).
  • March 20th, 2012: True the Vote provides 583 pages of that information.
