HOLDER IN CONTEMPT!
Grassfire Nation Update
This morning, President Obama granted an 11th-hour request by Attorney General Eric Holder to exert executive privilege over 'Fast and Furious' documents, a last-minute maneuver that the administration hoped would avoid a contempt vote...
That move failed when late this afternoon, along strict partisan lines the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee voted 23-17 to find Holder in contempt for his obstructionist tactics and failure to comply with multiple requests to hand over documents pertaining to the botched "Fast and Furious" gun-walking scandal.
The measure now goes to the full House for consideration, expected as early as next week, and is being described as "an unprecedented event" -- Congress holding a sitting attorney general in contempt.
+ + Did Obama tip his hand?
Patrick, why did Obama wait 15 months to exert executive privilege? The move certainly raises eyebrows and red flags of suspicion that there is something criminal in those documents -- something this administration and Holder don't want the public or anyone else to see!
We've said "Fast and Furious" had the mystery and intrigue of a Hollywood blockbuster, and with Obama's executive privilege and this afternoon's vote it couldn't be more apparent!

No, now is not the time to back off.
This vote is merely the beginning, and grassroots patriots must stay engaged by reaching out to and moblizing more citizens to action.
