A Republican congressman has introduced a bill that would stop government paychecks for officials who have been found in contempt of Congress — a move that seems designed in the short term to go after Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.
Mr. Holder has refused to cooperate with House Republicans’ probe into the Fast & Furious gun-walking operation, and the House has voted to find him in contempt. Mr. Holder is challenging that vote in court.
Rep. Blake Farenthold, a Texas Republican who publicly excoriated Mr. Holder at a hearing last week, introduced the legislation just before Congress went on vacation, and announced it Tuesday.
Why stop at Holder? He should include all members of congress because all of them are useless.
Maybe this is good?
Likely nothing more than a publicity stunt. At this point in Amerikan history, I think it's safe to say most of this bipartisan bickering is for show.
I read the first line of your OP, and sure enough: R-TX. A Republican from Texas, exactly as I guessed by your headline.
Texas politicians have gone round the bend. IMHO
