An email from Congressman Joe Walsh:
As a member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, I was the first to put in writing that Attorney General Eric Holder must resign due to his role in the “Fast and Furious” scandal. Yesterday my House colleagues and I voted 23-17 to hold Eric Holder in contempt of Congress.
Since coming to Congress just over a year ago, I have been committed to checking the unchecked power in Washington
Under the Obama Administration, government has become less accountable to the people and our laws and liberties have been circumvented. Just yesterday, in a last ditch effort to shield Holder from Congressional subpoena, Obama invoked executive privilege to stop Congress from investigating this scandal.
Fighting for accountability from the U.S. Attorney General has not always been the most politically popular thing to do. But Eric Holder’s refusal to cooperate has proven it is the right thing to do. Click here to show you stand with me.
This is an area where my opponent has failed to lead and serve the interests of the public. Even the Daily Herald has exposed her as silent on the issue just to “avoid a political minefield.”
As a former member of the Blagojevich and Obama administrations, it is clear she is the insider, rubber-stamp politician for special interests.
Folks, we need to elect representatives who will work to seek truth and ensure officials serve the public, not their own political careers. Send unaccountable politicians a message by donating today.
Together, we can keep this a government of the people, by the people, for the people.
Congressman Joe Walsh
