    HUNTSVILLE, TEXAS — A Mexican national was executed Wednesday night in Texas for killing a Houston police officer, despite pleas and diplomatic pressure from the Mexican government and the U.S. State Department to halt the punishment. Edgar Tamayo, 46, received a lethal injection for the January 1994 fatal shooting of Officer Guy Gaddis, 24. Asked by a warden if he had a final statement, he mumbled "no" and shook his head. As the lethal dose of pentobarbital began taking effect, he took a few breaths and then made one slightly audible snore before all movement stopped. He was pronounced dead...

    A Texas Republican plans to introduce a resolution of Articles of Impeachment for Attorney General Eric Holder on Thursday. Rep. Pete Olson’s (R-Texas) office said this morning that “this was not a decision made lightly,” but comes with Holder’s “pattern of disregard for the rule of law and refusal to be forthright with Congress and the American people” since being held in contempt in June 2012. That 255-67 vote on criminal contempt, which included 17 Democrats, was tied to the Fast and Furious scandal and marked the first time Congress has found an attorney general in contempt. A measure of...

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte recently threw a curveball into the immigration debate by floating what has been anathema to House Republicans — a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. The Virginia Republican’s idea: legalize the 11 million undocumented immigrants and allow them to apply for citizenship using ways that already exist — including marriage to a U.S. citizen or sponsorship by another relative or an employer. But the chairman’s July 11 comments have piqued interest among immigration advocates. Reformers want to hear more about what the powerful chairman is thinking. Many are encouraged that Goodlatte is seeking solutions...

    House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte recently threw a curveball into the immigration debate by floating what has been anathema to House Republicans — a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants. The Virginia Republican’s idea: legalize the 11 million undocumented immigrants and allow them to apply for citizenship using ways that already exist — including marriage to a U.S. citizen or sponsorship by another relative or an employer. As chairman of the committee with primary control over immigration matters, Goodlatte is a key point man for House Republicans on immigration policy. It’s unclear whether his comments reflect the larger view...
  • MSNBC's Michael Eric Dyson: Eric Holder "Is The Moses Of Our Time"

    MARTIN BASHIR: Professor, we heard Mr. Sensenbrenner (R-WI) say the Attorney General should step down. Congressman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) is also calling for resignation. Of course, he did that two years ago over Fast and Furious. Is this actually going to lead to something, do you think, or just more of the same, more continuous calls for the Attorney General to stand down? MICHAEL ERIC DYSON: I think the Attorney General should step down too -- off of the plateau where he represents on high principle and whip some heads. But he shouldn't give up his office. What he should...

    Senator, As a Virginia voter I am writing you to ask that you oppose the “healthcare reform” package your Democratic colleagues in the House and President Obama have introduced. This legislation is harmful to Virginians, will raise our taxes, and create a massive federal bureaucracy that will restrict patient choice. Please vote against any attempt to federalize our medical care system.

    Hogan Announces for 6th District U.S. House (Georgia) By Marc Montoni Roanoke - March 13, 2004 - The 6th U.S. House District meanders basically along I-81 from Shenandoah County in the north, through many of the counties bordering West Virginia, down to the Roanoke area.

Hogan was a new member of the LP who had joined at Jim Lark’s invitation at the June 2nd meeting...

    The chair of the House Agriculture Committee Wednesday asked Senate Democrats to quit dragging their feet on appointing conferees for Healthy Forest talks. Representative Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) says while California smoulders, the Democrats' stalling is blocking completion of legislation that has passed both Houses of Congress. "It puts the voice of a minority in the Senate, who have long stonewalled this process, ahead of a bipartisan majority of House members who supported the Healthy Forest legislation when it passed this May," Goodlatte said in a release. "It is time to put partisan politics aside so that we can bring forth...
