Scandal in Austria

In Austria, Joerg Haider's far-right Freedom Party is involved in a scandal over paying police to spy on its opposition. NPR's Guy Raz reports that national support for Haider's party has fallen in the last few weeks, and critics of the politician say the scandal is proof that he is a dangerous person. Haider's popularity in his home province however, is still high.
