Republican Congressman Jeff Flake, who represents Arizona's Sixth District, today issued the following statement on his vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress:

"This was not a vote I took lightly," said Flake. "Our system of government is one of checks and balances, so when an Executive Branch official fails to comply with those checks, balancing measures need to be taken. I hope that going forward, the investigation into the Fast and Furious scandal can continue with cooperation from the Department of Justice, and that those who are responsible for the operation of this program will be held accountable."
