Contempt Charges for Holder -- Your Action Requested
Grassfire Nation Update
Perhaps due to unrelenting grassroots pressure in the form of petitions, faxes, and phone calls, CBS News is confirming that House Speaker John Boehner, has given the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee the "go-ahead to proceed" with contempt charges against Attorney General Eric Holder.
For months now pressure has been mounting against Holder regarding his role and knowledge in the "Fast and Furious" gun-walking scandal that resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Mexican nationals, and at least one U.S. Border Patrol Agent.
According to the CBS News report, pursuing a contempt charge is a "strong sanction" against the executive branch, and considered "politically risky."
Grassfire Nation fully supports the effort, and is preparing an emergency petition delivery to Rep. Darrell Issa, the chair of the House Oversight Committee as a show of grassroots support for pushing ahead on this important issue.
Having already signed our petition, Grassfire is asking for your help in two critical ways:
+ + Action #1 -- Fax Your Members of Congress
Contempt charges for Holder are not a certainty. As the report said, they have only been green-lighted to do so. Grassfire Nation believes this dramatically increases chances that Congress will move forward and bring some law, order and accountability into this scandal.
Short of personally visiting your South Dakota Congressmen as well as members of the Oversight committee and other key leaders, faxing is your most efficient way to personally impact Congress.
Go here now to schedule personalized faxes for delivery to your lawmakers, the House Oversight committee as well as other key leaders, urging them to fully pursue these charges against Eric Holder.
Gven the rogue and reckless nature of "Fast and Furious", the fact that a U.S. Border agent was murdered, and more than a year of stonewalling from the DOJ, it's long past time for closure.
As Rep. Issa said, "The American people deserve the truth."
Underscore that with an exclamation point by clicking below and scheduling your faxes for fast delivery.
After scheduling your faxes for delivery, forward this message to 25-30 friends, urging them to sign our petition in time for our next hand-delivery to the House Oversight committee by going here.
Let them know that by signing quickly they will be included in our next upcoming delivery.
