Columbus, Ohio - The Ohio Liberty Council announced today that it is changing it's name to Ohio Liberty Coalition after a unanimous vote by its Board at it's April meeting. Tom Zawistowski, President of the OLC explained, "For over two years there have been complaints from another conservative organization, whose name is the Liberty Counsel, that our name - Ohio Liberty Council - was confusing to the public. The Liberty Counsel is a non-profit public interest law firm which is based out of Orlando, Florida. After months of discussions to address the issue, it was mutually agreed that we could clear up any confusion in the public's mind if we just changed the last word of our name from Council to Coalition. Therefore, effective immediately, the Ohio Liberty Council is now Ohio Liberty Coalition and our new web address will be"

Obama Campaign Office Violates Civil Rights Law

Civil rights lawyers told The Daily Caller that President Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign managers may have violated employment law by hiring an overwhelmingly white office staff for his campaign headquarters in Chicago.
That skewed workforce is starkly visible in an April photo released by Obama’s Chicago office, which shows roughly 100 of the office’s staff.
Only two of the people in the photo, far in the back, are clearly African-American, far below their 13 percent of the national population, and their 33-percent representation in Chicago.

 Columbus, Ohio - The Ohio Liberty Council welcomed the letter sent yesterday, March 1, 2012, by the House Ways and Means Committee Oversight Chairman Charles Boustany (R-LA) requesting that the IRS give a complete response to a previous request for general information on the tax-exempt sector, IRS audits and compliance activities related to tax-exempt organizations. The letter also requests additional information following reports that the IRS was questioning certain tax-exempt applicants, including grassroots political entities such as local TEA Party groups, about their operations and donors. For the past six weeks, hundreds of TEA Party groups and other conservative non-profit organizations across the country have suddenly received letters from the IRS demanding information about their members, donors, speakers at their events, affiliation with elected officials, and other highly confidential information.
Ohio Liberty Council President Tom Zawistowski said, “Those of us in the liberty movement who have been fighting against the politically motivated efforts of the IRS to intimidate and stop the activity of TEA Party groups around the nation, are glad to see someone giving the IRS a list of questions to answer about their actions and activites. We thank Chairman Boustany for beginning the process of finding out who is behind this attack on our First Amendment Rights to Political Free Speech and Freedom of Assembly. We hope in his next request to the IRS he will demand that the IRS show proof that they have asked the same questions of union and other liberal groups that are also 501(c)4 tax-exempt organizations.”
The Ohio Liberty Council is a council of leaders whose purpose is to unite conservative grassroots organizations for greater effectiveness in the state and nation, and to provide resources for member organizations to strengthen their groups. The OLC currently has over 75 liberty-minded groups across Ohio who are members of its coalition.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - Thursday, February 16, 2010
Contact: Tom Zawistowski,
Columbus, Ohio - The Ohio Liberty Council today announce that it would refuse to comply with an IRS request for information concerning the organizations application for non-profit status which has been delayed for the past 18 months. The IRS was informed in a letter today from Ohio Liberty Council President, Tom Zawistowski, that said “We find that your requests are unreasonable, overly burdensome, intrusive and possibly politically motivated and that they have little to do with determining our organization’s qualifications for non-profit status. Instead we believe that your requests force our organization to either forfeit our First Amendment Rights to Free Political Speech and Freedom of Assembly or deny us the non-profit status we are entitled to under IRS regulations. Neither of which is acceptable.”
The letter went on to say “Therefore, we hereby refuse to comply with your request. We have asked our Congressional Representatives to investigate your actions and intentions and we are exploring every legal means available to defend our rights. We answered all pertinent questions about our organization in our detailed original 1024 application in June of 2010 and see no reason why non-profit status should not be granted. We hereby request that our organization be granted non-profit status on the basis of that application without further delay.”
Zawistowski closed by saying “I defy any American to read this list of demands by the IRS and not be outraged. This is the kind of personal information that this government is going to be demanding from your church, your doctor, your hospital, your business and your favorite charity going forward. This isn’t speculation, these documents prove it is actually happening and will continue - particularly under Obamacare. Like the Catholic Church, we will not comply, we will resist with all our might, and defend the Constitution.”
