    Rep. David Schweikert has been removed from his seat on the House Financial Services Committee, and aides to the Arizona Republican claim the move was retaliation for voting against House GOP leaders too often. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and other top Republicans were huddled in a Steering Committee meeting on Monday.

    It seems that for the magnitude of the Fast and Furious scandal, there isn’t much outrage. Arizonans don’t need me to tell them that Fast and Furious is a big story. This scandal started in our backyard — in the ATF’s Phoenix office — and was administered by a U.S. attorney appointed by President Obama. Every step of this operation seems riddled with incompetence and dishonesty. High-ranking U.S. officials used taxpayer money — stimulus money no less — to buy guns and ship them to Mexico. The administration claims these firearms were shipped to Mexico in an attempt to destabilize...
