A press release from Congressman Joe Walsh:
Walsh’s Weekly Wrap-Up
This week, I sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder asking him to resign for the role he played in the subsequent cover-up of the failed Fast and Furious operation.
This program led to the death of two federal agents and was deliberately designed to attack law-abiding American gun-owners and gun-dealers.
The American people deserve to know the truth regarding the Attorney General’s knowledge and role in the operation.
I asked that the Attorney General resign immediately and take responsibility for implicating the United States as an accessory to the violent crimes committed by these Mexican cartels, using his appointed position as the chief law enforcement officer to attack the Second Amendment of the Constitution, and for the role he played in the subsequent cover-up of the failed Fast and Furious operation.
If he fails to do so, I ask that President Obama dismiss him immediately. Click here to view the letter sent to Attorney General Eric Holder.
Also this week, I co-sponsored the Government Results Transparancy Act, which will finally allow the government to publish all of its performance and spending data for each program on a public website in a format that makes it easy for anyone to search, download, and analyze.
I also co-sponsored the Unfunded Mandates Accountability Act that requires a cost-benefit analysis of economically significant rules issued by agencies that have an effect on the economy of $100 million or more and to select the “least costly, least burdensome, or most cost-effective” regulatory approach that achieves the policy goals set out by Congress.
It was great to be back in Illinois this weekend and hope you all can make it out to meet me on Monday at ‘Horror Stories (and other talk of Washington)’ in Barrington.
