Tea Party Leader: 'Feels Kind Of Creepy' To Be On Government's 'Enemy List' (VIDEO)

Larry Nordvig, executive director of the Richmond Tea Party, appeared on Fox News on Tuesday to comment on how his group dealt with extra scrutiny from the Internal Revenue Service ahead of the 2012 election.

"It feels kind of creepy to be on somebody's enemy list, especially when it's the government," Nordvig told Fox's Greta van Susteren.

Nordvig went on to outline the questions his group faced in order to receive a tax exemption. According to Nordvig, the IRS requested a list of donors and wanted to know members of the group and whom they associated with.

"The purpose of government is to protect our rights. ... Instead they are aggressively coming after us in a very, very tyrannical way," Nordvig said.

When asked whether this was a small incident, Nordvig added, "I just don't believe anybody could go rogue in a cubicle. ... This was coordinated from somewhere else."
