WASHINGTON (May 14, 2013)--Two Republican governors, Bobby Jindal of Louisiana and Scott Walker of Wisconsin, are urging President Barack Obama to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the Internal Revenue Service's admission that it targeted conservative political groups during the 2010 and 2012 campaigns.
The governors said the admission is “Big Brother come to life" and they say they want a special prosecutor to find out if any laws were broken.
They say Mr. Obama should fire any IRS employees responsible for the situation.
The IRS 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.
