House votes to hold Atty. Gen. Eric Holder in contempt of Congress

Los Angeles Times | June 28, 2012 | 1:53 PM

The House today approved a resolution holding Atty. Gen. Eric H. Holder Jr. in criminal contempt of Congress, the first time a sitting Cabinet member has been held in contempt.

Republicans pushed through the resolution because Holder has not turned over documents related to a botched gun-tracking operation known as Fast and Furious. A number of Democrats boycotted the vote.

A separate vote will be held to hold the attorney general in civil contempt.
