IRS Versus The Tea Party

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Gov. Scott Walker says the IRS's screening of conservative political groups seeking tax-exempt status is ``more than just a political scandal.''

Walker commented Tuesday on the issue after he and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal sent a letter urging President Barack Obama to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate the case.

Walker says the extra scrutiny of conservative groups by the IRS is ``a real threat to our freedoms.'' He says the issue is much bigger than a temporary political story out of Washington and everyone should be concerned about the IRS targeted certain groups.

In their letter, Jindal and Walker call the allegations ``Big Brother come to life.''

Both Walker and Jindal are potential Republican candidates for president in 2016.
