IRS-SPECIAL COUNSEL
House GOP wants special counsel to investigate IRS over handling of tea party applications

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, May 2, 2014 2:53 PM EDT
WASHINGTON


House Republican leaders say they want the Justice Department to appoint a special counsel to investigate the Internal Revenue Service over the way agents scrutinized applications by tea party groups for tax exempt status.

Republican Congressman Jim Jordan of Ohio introduced a nonbinding resolution Friday calling for a special counsel. Jordan called an ongoing investigation by the Justice Department, quote, "a joke."

Several committee chairmen have joined Jordan in sponsoring the resolution, and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia says the full House would vote on it next week.

Attorney General Eric Holder has dismissed previous calls for a special counsel. Democrats say the vote is another example of Republicans trying to fire up their base in an election year.
