Last year, the IRS is said to have targeted conservative political groups who were seeking a tax-exempt status.
And earlier Tuesday, Attorney General Eric Holder announced the Justice Department will investigate whether the IRS had the right to demand donor information from these conservative groups. But that's not the only federal agency who critics say is abusing its power.
The Department of Justice is also being scrutinized; after the Associated Press said the agency secretly obtained its phone records. The efforts are said to be part of an investigation to find who's been leaking classified government information to the media. Holder said it's not the goal of the administration to target reporters.
"Probably a constitutional wrong behind that. The IRS is not God. They are supposed to be doing their business of collecting their taxes, not targeting anybody, not being unfair," Eileen Stewart said.
In a letter to Holder, the President of the Associated Press said, "There can be no possible justification for such an overbroad collection of the telephone communications."
