Eric Holder 'No Confidence' Vote Looms

AZ GOP Rep. Paul Gosar filed a resolution in the House yesterday calling for a vote of  “no confidence” in Attorney General Eric Holder.

If passed, the vote would be an initial step to formally removing him from office.

“It is imperative that the citizens of our nation have confidence in our Attorney General,” Gosar detailed in the resolution text. “After months of evasive answers, silence and outright lies it is time that Congress speak up on behalf of the many people who have or will fall victims to the firearms in the flawed gunrunning operation Fast & Furious.”

The 56th member of congress called for Holder’s resignation today, joining two in the senate, and four of the GOP Obama challengers.

Holder faces a Congressional Black Caucus split. A CBC staffer said yesterday that the “general feeling” of most caucus members is that the congressional investigation into Operation Fast and Furious is warranted. But they would not comment on how deeply they see Holder's role, or whether Holder should step down.

Eric Holder joins Janet Reno in disgrace. Holder worked in the Reno DOJ, ironically, where he advocated the pardon of Marc Rich.  Rich was the convicted poster boy for white-collar crooks getting big payback from Bill Clinton.

Holder would be wise to put his ego and swagger aside, and resign - at least he could preserve a little self-respect that way.
