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 … Disney World.
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.
Many Democrats have attempted to politicize the issue, falsely claiming that House Republican’s contempt vote is an act of racism that has more to do with their efforts to surpress votes than finding out the truth about the operation and Terry’s death. The Congressional Black Caucus has scheduled a public walk-out during Holder’s contempt vote, to protest the sanctions against the Attorney General.
Though he will likely be held in contempt by Congress on all counts, for now Holder should just try and enjoy his time at “The Most Magical Place on Earth.” The Attorney General can rest easy knowing that the President and his Democratic friends in Congress will have his back while he is kickin’ it with Mickey Mouse.
