Skip to comments.House Votes to Limit DOJ Funding Unless Holder Comes Clean (142 Democrats votes for it)
Posted on 05/11/2012 6:59:13 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
The House voted on a controversial funding limit amendment Wednesday evening to stop Attorney General Holder from lying to Congress.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) Comments the move to cut off Holder's DOJ allowance for 2013 unless he tells the truth about the gun walking operation known as Fast and Furious.
The amendment to H.R. 5326, an appropriations bill funding Holder's agency for 2013, was in response to a February 4, 2011 letter to Congress in which DOJ officials denied any involvement in Operation Fast and Furious. Months later after damaging contradictions and discrepancies surfaced the Department was forced to rescind the letter.
In a 381-41 vote, House members including 142 Democrats, overwhelmingly sided with Chaffetz. The peoples' representatives decided taxpayer monies should not be used to support liars.
But the best Comments of outrage over the DOJ's above-the law attitude came from Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC).
"There hasn't been a demotion, there hasn't been a firing, there hasn't been a sanction, there hasn't been a frowny-face on a performance evaluation."
I'm thinking there are some politicians who have reached their limit of patience with Holder and Company. Not even one darn frowny-face.

Why don’t they just impeach the bastard?
Looks like were on our last conservative Pope.
muzzies say lying is ok to deceive your enemies. We, the people, are the enemy of this fraudulent administration.
because he’s black
I’m becoming very impressed with Jason Chaffetz...
he and Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio are giving me some hope for the future...
I just hope, after time in DC, they don’t go jumping the shark and drinking the koolaid.
Agreed, but probably not feasible. I like the idea, but what does holding up Holder’s 2013 allowance mean? He’ll be gone come Jan 20, or whatever the date is.
