Attorney General Holder held in contempt of Congress

POLITICOThe US House has voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress over his failure to turn over documents related to the ‘Fast and Furious’ scandal, the first time Congress has taken such a dramatic move against a sitting Cabinet official.
The vote was 255-67, with 17 Democrats voting in support of a criminal contempt resolution, which authorizes Republicans leaders to seek criminal charges against Holder. Dozens of Democrats marched off the floor in protest during the vote.
