The Wetumpka Tea Party has joined 24 other conservative groups who say they were targeted by the IRS.  The Mobile area Common Sense Campaign has also said they were victims of government scrutiny.  The chairman Pete Riehm says he doesn't know if they'll join the lawsuit—but if they did it wouldn't be about getting tax exempt status. 

"It's a more altruistic reason for the bigger picture:  to make sure this abuse of power by the IRS is rooted out, it's exposed and we make sure it never happens again," says Co-Founder Pete Riehm.  He says campaign members are divided on whether or not they need the exemption at all.  They have less federal oversight without it.
