Catherine Engelbrecht is a well-spoken, educated American patriot who is passionate about the rights of our citizens. Unfortunately, the IRS didn’t quite see her in the same light. Engelbrecht formed a non-profit True The Vote and King Street Patriots in 2010 to ensure election integrity. Shortly after filing for the non-profit status, the Engelbrechts became quite well known to the IRS and the FBI. They were underwent “15 different instances of audit or inquiry into their affairs”. Every conversation on their social media accounts were examined and their lives were turned upside down, until she decided to sue the IRS.
Engelbrecht told us that she has copies of a letter from Obama’s general counsel demanding investigation of any organization claiming to be involved with election integrity, and another specifically targeting True the Vote, designating it as a threat to the administration.
On February 6, 2014, she testified before the House Oversight and Government Reform Subcommittee on Regulatory Affairs, stating in her testimony about the IRS inquiries into her personal life that “these answers are not of interest to the typical IRS analyst, but they are certainly of interest to a political machine that would put its own survival against the civil liberties of a private citizen.”
Engelbrecht said the events have taken a great toll on her life, but she won’t stop. “We should all be very concerned about the implications of a federal government singling out and targeting individual citizens for a difference of opinion. It has only doubled my resolve to stand for principles and go beyond the rhetoric of being an American. I had to ask, What am I willing to put on the line?”
