Today on the Lid Radio Show our guest is Lori Lowenthal Marcus the founder and president of Z STREET, an unabashedly Zionist organization. But more than that Z STREET was the first group to sue (and beat) the IRS regarding it’s targeting of conservative organization. The show starts at 2PM Eastern, You can listen at SHR Media and High Plains Talk Radio or via the player embedded below.
In August of 2010, almost three years before Lois Lerner announced at a law conference that the IRS had indeed targeted certain groups,Z STREET, filed a lawsuit contending they were being targeted by the IRS because they disagreed with the President’s policy on Israel. In fact, Z STREET filed their suit against the IRS after an agent allegedly told them his direction was to “give special scrutiny to organizations connected to Israel,” and that the files of some of those “organizations were sent to a special unit in Washington, D.C. to determine whether the activities of the organization contradicted the public policies of the administration.” In the end it was this law suit that established that it was unconstitutional for the IRS to practice viewpoint discrimination.
Lori is a graduate of Harvard Law School, she previously practiced First Amendment law and taught in Philadelphia-area graduate and law schools. She is also the U.S. correspondent for The Jewish Press online, and founder of the group “Jews Choose Trump.” Lori can be followed on twitter @ and facebook
