Skip to comments.BREAKING: Senator Grassley Calls for Assistant A.G.’s Resignation from Senate Floor over ‘Fast
Posted on 12/07/2011 1:28:49 PM PST by Nachum
A Democratic lawmaker said Wednesday on the House floor that Republican legislators around the country are purposefully trying to deny blacks the right to vote by pushing for voter identification laws. Its no coincidence that a disproportionate number of these affected voters come from communities of color as well as the poor, the elderly and students, said Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.), a former chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus. Having been born and raised in Texas, this certainly looks like a poll tax to me, which those of us remember as a way to prevent African Americans from voting. These

And just let him walk away? We need a criminal prosecution. And clean out the DEA and ATF while they’re at it.
If having to id yourself in order to exercise the right to vote is a “poll tax”, then what is a fee and permission from gov’t to keep or bear a firearm called? “Common sense gun control”? I suppose the name you place on an infringement on rights depends on what the current gov’t deems appropriate. /sarcasm
I think perhaps you pasted the wrong snippet in this thread?
The headline doesn’t match the story.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Clean out the DEA and ATF? Why do they even exist? Is the FBI incapable of handling drugs, tobacco, and firearms?
They need to be calling for a Grand Jury.
Absolutely. He's a blatant liar, just as is his boss.
And the American People are calling for his prosecution along with all the BATFE personnel that were involved.
I hope Grassley is smart enough to subpeona Breur’s GMAIL account. The reason Grassley wants him out is he claims he never read the Feb 4 letter of lies the DOJ sent to Grassley. Evidence has been uncovered that Breur forwarded a copy of the letter from his DOJ account to his PERSONAL GMAIL account.
Of course Grassley knows Breur looked at the letter, otherwsie forward it to his personal GMAIL acct? My guess is that a lot of the nefarious things going on with DOJ,ATF, ICE, and the White House are covered up by communications through personal rather than gov’t email accounts.
Breur may well have forwarded the letter to his GMAIL account in order to then send it to another gov’t employees PERSONAL email (or maybe Blackberry Barry??) in order to keep it from being gov’t generated and therefore subject to FOIA requests or pesky House and Senate subpeonas.
If Breur used his personal GMAIL account for this letter, I wonder what other gov’t business he conducted using his personal GMAIL account??
A thousand apologies. It happens sometimes. Bleh.
Here is the correct info on this story...
On October 18, 2010, Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer sent communiqués to Attorney General Eric Holder alerting the A.G. that indictments over Fast and Furious could be forthcoming. This alert came on the heels of briefings on Fast and Furious which were sent to Holder at least as early July 2010. Yet although Fast and Furious was the topic of such correspondence and the focus of such briefings, in February 2011 Breuer told Congress he knew nothing about the gun walking tactics which had been used in the operation. His contention was that he only learned of the tactics once Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry had been killed in December 2010.
More recently, however, Breuer has decided he knew about the gun walking aspects of Fast and Furious as early as April 2010. But he continues to carry water for the DOJ by saying that although he knew, he never took the time to tell Holder about the gun walking.
How many lies can these people tell before someone changes the locks on their office doors and takes away their parking credentials?
Senator Charles Grassley, for one, has had enough, and just today officially called for Breuers resignation from the Senate floor.
The Justice Department had publicly denied to Congress that ATF would ever walk guns. Yet the head of the Criminal Division, [Lanny] Breuer knew otherwise and said nothing.
It is past time for accountability at the senior levels of the Justice Department. That accountability needs to start with Mr. Breuer. I believe it is time for him to go.
While I view Senator Grassley as a strong ally in the pursuit of justice for the crimes associated with Fast and Furious, and I am grateful for his stand here, I urge him to go further and take whatever steps are necessary to have Breuer handcuffed and frog-marched out of DC immediately.
Breuer lied to Congress, and in so doing, he undermined one aspect of the very system of justice he swore to uphold.
Did you post the wrong body of article for the title.The voter ID fraud statement needs it’s own thread ping me to it.
Sorry about that.
Rep Lee is once again demonstrating that you can lead a liberal to a book, but you cannot make them read.
She should look up “poll tax” and then try to get both of her operational brain cells to compare that to an ID check.
After that, she can shove herself up her smelly Obama.
What an ignorant.....xxxt.
screw resignation, you freakin cowards!!
jail time, ffs. what the hell is wrong with you people?!
And his boss’s boss.
That’s okay. No worries.I want to read the voter ID article now lol.
Yep, especially the #1 criminal.
