The Black Caucus Is Staging A Walkout During The Eric Holder Contempt Vote
Jun. 27, 2012, 9:33 PM
The Congressional Black Caucus is planning to stage a walkout during tomorrow's House vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt over the Fast and Furious gun-walking scandal, according to a letter that is being circulated among Democratic members of Congress.
We adamantly oppose this partisan attack and refuse to participate in any vote that would tarnish the image of Congress or of an attorney general who has done nothing but work tirelessly to protect the rights of the American people," the Black Caucus members wrote in the letter, which was obtained by several news outlets. We cannot and will not participate in a vote to hold the Attorney General in contempt."
The letter, which was sent to the Hispanic, Asian, and Progressive Caucuses, calls on members to walk off the House floor during tomorrow's vote, and join the Black Caucus for a press conference on the steps of the Capitol Building during the roll call.
The House Rules Committee voted along party lines Wednesday to send the contempt measure to the House floor, designating two hours and 20 minutes for debate Thursday, according to The Hill.

LOL!!!! When you have no legitimate argument, make it about race. I love these liberals and their staged events. Symbology is SO much more important than substance . . . for Democrats.
Is West a member of the Black Caucus. I doubt if he is, he would go.
This is shades of Wisconsin.
Stop right there.
Don’t let the door hit you in the a$$ on the way out!
In the immortal words of Herman Munster:
So, the racists have decided to throw a tantrum!
If I were in the House of Rep, I would start a White Caucus. It would cost me my seat, but boy oh boy would it be fun.
Bet Allen West isn’t walkin’ out, nor will Jesse Jr. (sick leave) make the walk. That leaves 41 morons showing their arse and REALLY showing who the racists are!!
So the Black Caucus is saying black people should be held to a lower standard? Why? As “reparations”? or because they don’t want black people rising to levels of excellence?
We adamantly oppose this partisan attack and refuse to participate in any vote that would tarnish the image of Congress or of an attorney general who has done nothing but work tirelessly to protect the rights of the American people,”
What a load of lying crap. They aren’t walking out because they think he’s innocent. They’re walking out because he’s black. Holder could be guilty as sin and they would still support him. If Holder was a white liberal, they wouldn’t be walking out.
Das raight. We all stick together in our hate and distrust of whitey.
Are they planning on running to some hotel in Maryland? Seems that’s all the Democrats are good for these days when things don’t go their way.
“AND STAY OUT!”....
Of course, those holding Holder to account aren’t aware of the unspoken rule, one that can’t be spoken without being accused of being racist -
black DEMOCRAT politicians are ENTITLED to be corrupt because of the “legacy of slavery”.
“We don’t care that he is breaking the law, he black so we side with him”
Understand he applied, but there was an issue of acceptance.
If he is a member, he certainly does not support the Racist Commie crap they push.
Bet Allen West and Tim Scott don’t walk out! But, the Communist faction of the CBC will!
