Location: Washington, DC

Congresswoman Mazie K. Hirono (HI-02) released the following statement on the U.S. House of Representatives' vote to find U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. Congresswoman Hirono voted against themeasure.

"Today, House Republicans staged a contemptuously-partisan vote on holding the Attorney General in contempt of Congress. This shameful vote was a blatant political ploy by Washington Republicans who say their number one goal for 2012 is to defeat President Obama, and I voted against it. The American people deserve better. Congress should be sharply focused on the everyday challenges facing Hawaii's families, not wasting time and energy on this political shibai."
