39 Join Walsh in Asking Obama to Dismiss Eric Holder

A press release from Congressman Joe Walsh:

Rep. Walsh Leads Letter to the President Asking for Holder Resignation

“Attorney General Eric Holder is supposed to enforce the laws of this nation, not try to break them. It’s time he goes.”

WASHINGTON- Today, Congressman Joe Walsh (IL-8) sent a letter with 39 of his colleagues to President Obama asking for Holder’s immediate resignation. Congressman Walsh sent a letter directly to the Attorney General in late October asking him to take responsibility for his role in Operation Fast and Furious and to step down, but the Attorney General has continued to stonewall Congress and the subsequent investigation.

Walsh stated:

Joe Walsh

“The American people deserve to know the truth regarding Attorney General Eric Holder’s knowledge and role in Operation Fast and Furious. Throughout this investigation, the Attorney General has back-pedaled on his testimony, tried to cover his tracks, and has been unwilling to cooperate with the Congressional investigation. This is simply unacceptable.

“The Attorney General oversaw a department which carried out an operation that left a U.S. border patrol agent dead, illegally sold 2,000 weapons to Mexican cartels, and attempted to build a case for gun control. Operation Fast and Furious was a tragic mistake. The American people deserve more than this from their government and the Attorney General needs to give answers, not more false testimony.

“Attorney General Eric Holder is supposed to enforce the laws of this nation, not try to break them. It’s time he goes.”

I see no signatures from other Illinois Congressmen/women.

  4. Gee, funny how Cal “forgets” to report on the immoral deadbeat Dad Joe Walsh’s statement that anything other than brainless subservience to his lord and masters in the corporate world constitutes being anti American. Too bad he doesn’t feel that paying your own bills is patriotic.

  5. Walsh supports the Keystone pipeline.

    Why are democrats against it?

    Is their goal to have 15% unemployment by 2013?
