On day of contempt vote Eric Holder skips town, heads to Disneyworld
On the day in which the U.S. House of Representatives has determined that Attorney General Eric Holder’s actions are egregious enough to warrant a criminal contempt vote, the AG has skipped town and headed to … Disneyworld.
According to the National Journal’s Daybook, Holder will be addressing the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) during a convention at a Disneyworld Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
Members of Congress will decide in a series of contempt votes whether Attorney General Holder will be held in contempt of Congress for his refusal to turn over a substantial number of the documents related to the Fast and Furious scandal that caused the death of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
Last week, Obama claimed executive privilege on the documents related to the Fast and Furious Investigation, a move that has angered many Americans and indicated the possibility of a cover-up.
