GOP to push contempt vote against Holder
A congressional panel has scheduled a vote for next week to decide whether Attorney General Eric Holder ought to be held in contempt of Congress for his alleged failure to turn over documents related to the Department of Justice's ill-fated "Fast and Furious" gun-smuggling sting operation. This is only "the fourth time in 30 years that Congress has launched a contempt action against an executive branch member."
