Following the unexpected May 2013 admission by Lois Lerner that the IRS was targeting conservative groups according to their political views, Kevin Kookogey has risen to national prominence for his principled and articulate defense of ordered liberty. As President & Founder of Linchpins of Liberty: An American Leadership Development Enterprise, Mr. Kookogey was the first IRS target to testify before the House Ways & Means Committee regarding how the IRS unlawfully delayed and obstructed his application for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status.
Linchpins of Liberty, an educational organization, filed its application for tax-exempt-status in January 2011, and it took 35 months (instead of the normal 2-4 months) to receive a letter of determination. Consequently, the organization was destroyed and must start over again. Linchpins of Liberty has filed a lawsuit against the IRS and is represented in that matter by Jay Sekulow and the American Center for Law & Justice (ACLJ).
Mr. Kookogey’s fight against the IRS was initially featured in the Wall Street Journal and eventually covered in every major newspaper and by every major media outlet. Kevin has appeared on numerous national television programs, including Hannity, Fox & Friends, America Live with Megyn Kelly, America’s Newsroom with Bill Hemmer & Martha MacCallum, CBS Morning News, Kudlow Report with Larry Kudlow (CNBC),On The Record with Greta van Susteren, Your World with Neil Cavuto, Fox Business’After the Bell with David Asman… Click here to learn more.
