Walker, Jindal Want Special Prosecutor in IRS Case

Tuesday, 14 May 2013 11:40 AM

Two Republican governors are urging President Barack Obama to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the Internal Revenue Service's admission that it targeted conservative political groups.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker call the allegations "Big Brother come to life."

They want a special prosecutor to find out if any laws were broken and say Obama should fire any IRS employees responsible for the situation.

The IRS has apologized for what it calls "inappropriate" targeting of conservative political groups. The agency targeted groups during the 2010 congressional elections and the 2012 presidential election.

Jindal is the chairman of the Republican Governors Association and Walker is the group's vice chairman. Both are potential presidential candidates in 2016.
