WASHINGTON (AP) — Anger over President Barack Obama's policies drove businessman Tom Zawistowski to file paperwork with the Internal Revenue Service nearly three years ago to create the Ohio Liberty Coalition.

His nonprofit organization largely attracted conservatives who were new to politics. It eventually swelled to more than 20,000 members, becoming one of the region's largest groups affiliated with the national tea party movement that emerged in the early months of Obama's first term.

Over the next few years, the Ohio Liberty Coalition would work to oust the president and his fellow Democrats — and battle the IRS.
