GEORGETOWN, Ky. (AP) -- A central Kentucky organization is among 25 that have filed suit against the Internal Revenue Service over the agency's targeting of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status.

The Lexington Herald-Leader reports the Georgetown-based Kentucky 9/12 Project joined the other groups in seeking unspecified damages from the IRS.

The American Center for Law and Justice, a conservative legal organization, brought the lawsuit on behalf of the groups in U.S. District Court in Washington.

The suit accuses the Obama administration of using a "comprehensive, pervasive, invidious and organized scheme" to deny tax-exempt status based on groups' political views.

Kentucky 9/12 Project Director Eric Wilson says the lawsuit is necessary "because we feel that questions need to be answered and people need to be held accountable."
