The feds are attempting to silence antiwar activist Cindy Sheehan by suing her for what it says are back taxes she owes the government.
In a federal filing in Sacramento, an IRS bureaucrat claimed in a federal filing that Sheehan has refused to provide financial information for the 2005 and 2006 tax years.
On Tuesday, Cindy wrote on her blog that she learned of the government's case against her when a reporter told her about it at a cafe in Vacaville, California.
Sheehan talked with the reporter on-camera "but I did not tell him anything that I haven't been publicly and loudly saying since my son was killed in this bloody Empire's illegal and immoral war in Iraq: I made a moral decision to refuse to fund the Empire's crimes, tortures and wars. I have not been hiding from anybody and am fully accessible and easy to find," she writes.
Cindy's son, U.S. Army Specialist Casey Sheehan, was killed by enemy action during the illegal invasion of Iraq.
Sheehan believes the government is going after her for political reasons. "The Feds have thrown down the gauntlet against someone who has absolutely not one ounce of fear of them, and when it's over, they'll know they have been in a fight," she explains.
