As a House Committee prepares to vote on a resolution citing Attorney General Holder for contempt over the botched "Fast and Furious" gun trafficking operation, the American people should be wondering: Why is there no mechanism for us to hold the Congress in contempt?
Attorney General Eric Holder has been the subject of vicious partisan personal attacks on his integrity over the failed "gun walking" operation, "Fast and Furious." The hypocrisy of the double standard by congressional Republicans is obvious.
Gun rights activists are generally from the political right while marijuana reformers are typically from the political left. Ironically, if they could get past their distrust of each other, the two groups would discover that they are quite similar.
Now that Republicans in Congress won important concessions in the debt ceiling debate, the next partisan battle is likely to be over what promises to be the first major scandal of the Obama administration: the botched gun sting known as "Operation Fast and Furious."
