Mack Votes in Favor of Contempt Measure Against Holder

Press Release

Location: Washington, DC

Congressman Connie Mack (FL-14) voted in favor of a measure to find Attorney General Eric Holder guilty of contempt of Congress over the failure to produce key documents related to the botched "Fast and Furious" program under the jurisdiction of the Justice Department. Mack, a Member of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee, had previously voted to find Holder in contempt last week after the Attorney General and President Obama exercised the legal maneuver of "Executive Privilege," a procedural move often reserved for Presidents to protect National Security, not cover up failures in an Administration. The Obama-Holder botched "Fast and Furious" program resulted in the tragic death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.

Congressman Connie Mack (FL-14) issued the following statement after today's series of votes that found Attorney General Holder guilty of contempt of Congress, both criminally and in a civil capacity:

"All the evidence I have seen regarding 'Fast and Furious' shows that what was once a failure at all levels of the Justice Department has now escalated into nothing short of Nixon-style cover-up of their own failures by the Obama Administration."
