On Tuesday, Attorney General Eric Holder, under fire for his own involvement in a Department of Justice scheme to grab months worth of Associated Press phone records, said that he would open an investigation into the Internal Revenue Service. The IRS is currently under heavy scrutiny for its admission last week that it discriminated against conservative non-profit applicants. Other media reports have stated that the IRS gave extra scrutiny to pro-Israel and Jewish groups as well.
“I have ordered an investigation,” Holder told the press.
