On October 27th, in a townhall meeting in Yuma, Arizona, before his election as senator, Jeff Flake promised to hold those who had allowed and covered up the Fast and Furious scandal accountable.
The time has come for Senator Flake to start making good on his promise. On June 11th, the Senate Judiciary Committee is scheduled to begin hearings on the confirmation of B.Todd Jones as the Director of the BATFE.
Senator Flake is a member of that committee.
B. Todd Jones was present at a key meeting that occurred just before the Fast and Furious operation began. B. Todd Jones needs to answer detailed questions about that meeting.
At the townhall meeting on 27 October, I asked Jeff Flake the following question:
"What is he (then Congressman Flake) going to do to hold those people who allowed and covered up the Fast and Furious scandal (accountable) after he is elected Senator?"
His response was fairly straightforward, though he did indicate that it would be easier to do if Mitt Romney were elected president. Congressman Flake said:
"We have already passed a contempt resolution. The problems is those who enforce it work for those who we are holding in contempt. That makes it difficult to move ahead."
"We will pursue that. We will pursue that, hopefully with Mitt Romney in the White House, and those accountable will be held accountable."
"You have my word, we are going to move forward on it."
Senator Flake is on record promising that he will hold those behind the Fast and Furious scandal accountable.
Senator Flake, some tough questioning of B. Todd Jones about what was discussed at the Southwest Border Strategy Group meeting that he attended just before the start of Fast and Furious, is in order.

I get the impression the Jeff Flake is becoming a flake. His support for the amnesty hoax should disturb everyone in AZ who voted for him.
Key phrase. No different than all the other frauds we get duped to putting in.
Yeah, right, Rep. Jeff Flake. I’m certain you’ll get right on it after you get done rearranging your sock drawer.
There in is the problem. We cannot punish those that are in control of the punishment. America may never recover.
While this is a “brave” statement by Jeff Flake, he seems to be the type of Politician who is either afraid, or bought out, to do the heavy lifting and do the right thing on policies like Amnesty for Illegal Aliens.
So while this is a pretty statement by Sen. Flake, he is still a traitor to conservatives, and ultimately, the United States, with his support of Amnesty for 30 million+ Undocumented Democrats.
From what I have seen of Jeff Flake so far I would not count on much.
Uh-huh. Sure you will. Right after Bubba Clinton holds Osama bin Laden accountable for the World Trade Center bombing and zero holds muslims responsible for the Boston bombing.
In the meantime, there are new seasons of American Idol and Survivor getting underway.
Border Patrol agents go to prison for far less than Obama did with fast and furious.
Right after OJ finds Nicole’s real murderer.
Politicians say lots of stuff when they’re campaigning for office.
So what you gonna do, Jeff, trade F & F “exposure” for getting amnesty rammed down our throats?
Hey, Jeff Fluke: I might be interested in your taking a stand on Fast and Furious if you were not heavily involved in pushing us to national suicide by your shilling for amnesty/massive third-world immigration.
Distributing guns to Mexicani drug lords, as bad as that is, isn’t even on the radar compared to the immigration disaster you’re pushing.
I have nothing but contempt for this guy.
I wish I'd remembered that one and included it in my rant! Thanks.
