They didn't have any luck following their Fast & Furious and Benghazi scandal-mongering, but as Sen. Lindsey Graham demonstrated this Sunday, they're not going to stop trying to get a special prosecutor appointed any time soon: Graham calls for special prosecutor to investigate IRS, Fox News cases:

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday called for a special prosecutor to investigate both the IRS’s targeting of conservative groups and the Justice Department’s investigations of reporters.

Graham, appearing on “Fox News Sunday,” said that the IRS scandal illustrated a culture of revenge that permeates President Obama’s administration.

The Justice Department’s push to obtain emails from James Rosen, a Fox News reporter, was “clearly an overreach,” Graham said.

“James Rosen is a lot of things, but a criminal co-conspirator he is not,” Graham added. “We’re beginning to criminalize journalism, and I think that should worry us all.”

Another special prosecutor... what could possibly go wrong?
