New controversy over proposed mosque near Ground Zero

Officials say there is a new controversy over the proposed mosque near Ground Zero.

Long Island Congressman Peter King is calling for an investigation into the funding of the mosque.

King says there are legitimate questions about where the $100 million is coming from to build the house of worship.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg says it would be un-American to investigate the mosque.

Another hearing today on the building plans is scheduled for today.
