Ministries Under Investigation

Some evangelical ministries are being investigated this afternoon.... After questions are raised on where donations are really going.

Officials say six ministries, including Texas based Kenneth Copeland Ministries are under scrutiny for their preachers lifestyles, which officials claim are funded with donors generosity. John Copeland, son of televangelist Kenneth Copland, says his father is doing nothing wrong. And items like his fathers personal jet are used as a tool for the ministry.

The Copeland's say the committee is singling out pentecostals ... And say the financial review requests are a violation of the church's first amendment rights. One senator says the investigation is a review of the non-profit tax policy... Since IRS rules prevent pastors and other insiders from excessive personal gain through tax-exempt work.
