Black House Members Force Congress to Vote on Reprimand for Issa
June 29, 2012 | Posted by Nick Chiles
A day after House Republicans voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress, the members of the Congressional Black Caucus got their revenge by forcing the House today to vote on a resolution scolding California Rep. Darrell Issa, the engineer behind the contempt vote, for mistreatment of Holder and behavior that they claim was against House rules.
Rep. Barbara Lee of Texas decided to take the response a step further today by putting forth a privileged resolution that picked apart Issas handling of the Holder case through his House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
Lee requested that the House clerk read her entire resolution out loud so that she could get it on the House record. Among the accusations in the resolution are that Issa: jeopardized an ongoing criminal investigation by publicly releasing documents that his own staff has admitted were under court seal; that he took steps that could potentially jeopardize a criminal conviction; that he has engaged in a witch hunt, through the use of repeated incorrect and uncorroborated statements in the committees Fast and Furious investigation; and that he has chosen to call the Attorney General of the United States a liar on national television without corroborating evidence and has exhibited unprofessional behavior.
Republicans were able to table the resolution by a vote of 259 to 161. Issa had no response. But Lee got what she wanted: to show House Republicans that two could play the political shame game.

Of Holder? At least she knows what a crime is, I think.
Race card. Never leave it at home. A black politician can commit a crime and it is racist to even acknowledge it. It is getting old.
The scum of the earth got her 15 minutes fame. Now she can crawl back in the hole she came out of.
Lee got what she wanted: to show House Republicans that she could play the political shame game more shamefully than
She has called Issa out, now let her prove her accusations.
With each fiasco like this, more and more ‘people of pallor’, along with the rest of the country, are caring less and less what the race card holders think.
And the CBC knows it.
They pushed as best they could, but failed. Now they see the train coming.
From the “Atlanta Black Star”? Noting racist about that site.....
These people can wear hoodies in congress, but when it comes to a dead white border agent, they protect the criminal who put the guns in the killers hands.
Disband the black caucus. Either they are there for ALL Americans, or they don’t need to be there at all.

If you’re white and break the law, the cops take you to jail.
If you’re black and break the law, the cops get taken to jail.
Obama’s America. :)
I bet he would have a whole lot of corrobotation if they would release the documents.
LOL!!! They can’t even correctly identify their own people!
The Angry Black Caucus.
The Black Congressional Caucus needs to deal with disenfranchised black voters who have been eating bath salts for about a month.
In a cage of course.
I guess this is what it takes to get any action out of democrumbs.
On one hand ya got a shifty racist Obumo appointed pawn with somethin’ ta hide.
On the other hand ya got a tenacious senior elected representative shining a light and watching cockroaches scatter. Hmmmmmm
Guess it boils down to skin color HUH!!!
Damn racist congresscritters.
I wonder what the Atlanta White Star newspaper has to say about this?
Oh, that’s right, only African-Americans can have racist newspapers, caucuses, TV stations and magazines.
Holder has been held in criminal contempt of Congress. A first in American history.
Deal with it.
I guess you need the really expensive binoculars to see that one.
