David Dewhurst Statement on Holder Contempt Vote


Location: Unknown

U.S. Senate candidate David Dewhurst released the following statement after the U.S. House of Representives voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt by a vote of 255 to 67:

"The decision by the House of Representatives to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress is just another reminder of how President Obama and his Administration have failed the American people. It has become obvious this Administration has forsaken transparency in order to shamefully cover up their Fast and Furious gun-running operation that provided weapons to Mexican firearm smugglers. Americans deserve to know the truth and, until President Obama and Mr. Holder stop obfuscating and hiding behind executive orders, we will never know the truth behind a reckless program that has cost the life of at least one American."
