Posted on 06/27/2012 10:10:26 AM PDT by rightistight
Already, there are a few democrat members of the House that have declared that they will be voting to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt. This on its face destroys the far-Left's assertions that the vote is strictly partisan. It is literally the opposite now: bi-partisan...
Representative Jim Matheson of Utah has declared that he would vote Holder in contempt. Mr. Matheson also unequivocally voiced his distaste for the corruption the Obama Administration is fostering, saying, "Sadly, it seems that it will take holding the attorney general in contempt to communicate that evasiveness is unacceptable. It is a vote I will support."
Representative John Barrow of Georgia has also stated his support for finding Holder in contempt. Mr. Barrow said, in part, "the Attorney General has decided to withhold relevant documents. The only way to get to the bottom of what happened is for the Department of Justice to turn over the remaining documents, so that we can work together to ensure this tragedy never happens again."
Representatives Nick Rahall of West Virginia and Collin Peterson of Minnesota have joined as well. Defending his planned vote, Peterson described the Obama Administration's rational for executive privileges as "gobbledygook." He went on to say, "I dont know what the hell they are talking about."

As a law-abiding citizen of the United States, I support the efforts of the 100 members of Congress who are calling for Attorney General Eric Holder’s resignation. During his tenure as Attorney General he repeatedly demonstrated a lack of competence, accountability and honesty — culminating in the “Fast and Furious” gun walking scandal.
Throughout the investigation, Holder has been an obstruction to truth and justice. The American people and the nation deserve better from federal officials and to that end, I am adding my name to this petition demanding Eric Holder’s immediate resignation as U.S. Attorney General. I also support the “Contempt Of Congress” vote in Congress against Holder.
I think there will be more. Four is a good start, and these faces should be remembered. I think that the Dems are scared to death of this WH and the havoc that Obama can wreak upoon them, should they publically oppose him.
I am waiting to see if any of Holder’s people vote yes.
If so, Holder is done for.
:: the MSM narrative will still include the phrase mostly along party lines ::
I’m thinking they might even try “mostly racial lines”. It’s been their siren-call for decades.
I think we all understand that and would agree with you. In a sane world with ethical people in positions of trust, the vote would be unanimous.
It’s been reported that the Black Carcass is planning a walk out. This will only open more eyes to the depraved evil they represent.
