Tea Party members stage IRS protests in Johnson City

Posted: Updated:
JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL) -

Local Tea Party members staged a pair of protests Friday afternoon in Johnson City to bring attention to recent actions by the Internal Revenue Service.

"We're just trying to say across the nation -  people are fed up," said Kay White, Tea Party member and event organizer.  "Enough really is enough."

Groups gathered on Roan Street and State of Franklin Road.

An inspector general's report said the IRS targeted conservative groups during the 2010 and 2012 elections.

There's been no evidence the White House knew about it until this spring.

House Speaker John Boehner called that "inconceivable."

"We're tired of it," White said.  "We want some action, and we want some answers."
