Sen. McCain Says Special Counsel May Be Needed To Investigate IRS Scandal

"It certainly, when you look at the people that were targeted, it might have been something different than accidental, but I think we ought to have hearings and I think that there may be an argument for a special counsel here," McCain (R-Ariz.) said on NBC's "Today" show. "But let's, I think, wait and see."
