Without Sandy Adams This Time, Another Call to Hold Eric Holder in Contempt

A resolution calling for the House to hold U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt has garnered the signatures of 118 House members.

But Rep. Sandy Adams, one of Holder’s leading critics, has not signed on. Instead, the Orlando Republican is going her own way.

“The congresswoman reads every bill before co-sponsoring and she had concerns about the language of the personal references in the resolution,” Adams’ spokeswoman Lisa Boothe told Sunshine State News on Monday.

Boothe did not specify Adams’ concerns, but said the freshman lawmaker “has been a leader on the issue, calling for [Holder’s] resignation and, most recently, sending a letter with her fellow freshmen to leadership recommending that the House begin contempt of Congress hearings.”

A tea party activist familiar with the issue expressed dismay that Adams' name was not on the list.

"This is just the latest example of Adams seeming to care more about theatrics than results," said the activist, speaking on condition of anonymity.

I hope not, she was a leader before.

See kcvl’s posts 3 through six. Ate crow; didn’t like it. Still don’t. Best I can do is understand that there are several really good people working very hard for the right thing. I do NOT include the leadership.

Thanks for the usual excellent job of keeping us informed, kcvl.
