Following up on the real story behind the Fast and Furious “scandal”, there is more to be
screamed said about the NRA’s intrusion into the vote tomorrow to hold Attorney General Holder in contempt, which is outrageous and another example of how corrupt our elected officials are.
The National Rifle Association (NRA) warned House lawmakers last week that it will score Thursday’s vote on the Republicans’ contempt resolution, which accuses Holder of stonewalling a GOP investigation into a bungled gun-walking program under his Department of Justice (DOJ).
Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.) said the NRA is merely “playing politics,” arguing that the contempt vote “has nothing to do with the specific use or ownership of guns” and charging that the NRA’s involvement “shows how far Republicans allowed the issue of government oversight to descend into an issue of Republican overreach.”
“What the heck is the NRA doing getting involved in scoring votes on an issue of a contempt citation?” Becerra, vice chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, said during a press briefing in the Capitol.
Democratic Caucus Chairman John Larson (Conn.) underscored the despicable impact on even bought-and-paid-for Dems who, along with every Republican, will likely French kiss the NRA’s impotent little gun barrels tomorrow, saying, “The NRA is a major force on this Hill. It seems rather extraordinary that they would score this issue, but some members are impacted by that.”
Those members should be voted out.
