Fischer: Not ready to support special prosecutor for IRS scandal

Senator Deb Fischer says she and others in Congress are frustrated with the lack of answers from IRS officials regarding their agency's targeting of tea party and other conservative groups seeking tax exempt status.

The Nebraska Republican told Fox NEWS the constant "I don't know answers" being received by Congressional oversight committees are not adequate. But Fischer said she is not ready at this time to call for a special prosecutor to investigate the situation.

Fischer says before a special prosecutor is appointed she wants to continue the congressional oversight process, which she emphasized is part of the Senate's job.
