Democrats’ Support for Holder Collapsing

Cracks have started to appear in the wholehearted Democratic support for embattled Attorney General Eric Holder as he faces possible contempt hearings for refusing to hand over papers relating to the Fast and Furious gun-running scandal.

Three House Democrats and one Senate candidate have added their voices to the growing clamor for Holder and his Justice Department to come clean on the scheme that allowed thousands of guns to fall into the hands of violent Mexican drug cartels.

The move comes the day before congressmen will be given the opportunity to vent on their feelings in the case in a “special order” session which is expected to result in a concerted Republican call for Holder to quit or be fired.

The three congressmen, Nick Rahall of West Virginia, Gene Green of Texas, and Ron Kind of Wisconsin, were among 31 Democratic representatives who signed a letter last summer urging the Justice Department to cooperate with investigations being spearheaded by Republican Rep. Darrell Issa of California and Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa.
