Didn't see this posted yet. Apologies if it is. With the Supreme Courts obamacare decision this morning, this seems like a small victory. To clarify this is not the vote of contempt put to vote on holding in contempt. The 2nd link is live. I have DSL so I can't get it well.

FINAL VOTE:
254 IN FAVOR
173 OPPOSED

OBAMA ATTORNEY GENERAL ERIC HOLDER HAS BEEN FOUND IN CONTEMPT OF CONGRESS.

So what does this mean?

I bet it holds as much worth as Rangle's censure.

The link is broken. The vote has not yet taken place. Take back your flags. This is bogus.

Well vote hasn't happened yet. So, the source is bogus.

However if the House does vote to hold Holder in contempt, then the Senate would need to do the same in order for him to be in contempt of Congress.

The vote has happened. Totals are apparently not all tabulated but enough to see what is happening. This link works fine for me. Was slow when I 1st found the link.

FOX news just showed them still debating.....no vote yet. Also said there were people expected to walk out once the vote started, So, I don't buy the link in the OP.

Rangel is not out of the woods yet. Some expect a recount. His margin of victory was tighter than first reported.

Rep. Charlie Rangel, D-N.Y., could face a potential recount in his Democratic primary, after an Associated Press report shows him up only 2.8 percent with 32 of the districts 506 precincts and absentee ballots still to be counted.

www.cbsnews.com...

Surely their has to be justice somewhere in this nation. Rangel for another term just seems like something out of bizarro world.

As for this mess with Holder. There is still hope that he will be held accountable some day. Most likely when he is knocking on the gates of purgatory.

That vote was a vote to have the contempt vote.

vote

This will likely be the final tally, minus the black caucus.

Why do you keep insisting that the vote has happened when it is blatantly untrue. Your post is demonstrably fraudulent. Your Ulsterman link provided a 404 page not found, still, and your added second link show sthe debate still in progress. Why you are not banned for this fraud is anathema to me.

My bad for the miscommunication. This is the point I was trying to get across here.

BREAKING: Bipartisan Vote Charges Eric Holder With Contempt of Congress
by Ulsterman on June 28, 2012 with 1 Comments in News

Final votes still being tabulated but as of now 14 Democrats have sided with Republicans in charging Obama Attorney General Eric Holder with Contempt of Congress. Update to follow…

I could be wrong, but I think that vote is to CHARGE him with contempt. Whether he will be FOUND in contempt is another issue to be decided...

House debates Attorney General Holder contempt charge



If the contempt charge is approved later on Thursday, as expected, Holder, the nation's top law enforcement officer, would become the first sitting attorney general - and the first presidential Cabinet member - to be accused of the crime of contempt by the full House.

Vote to charge him ... not the final vote.
But you can tell by the vote to charge him what the final vote MAY be.
common sense .. it'll be close to that.
except .. as the previous poster said .. the Congressional Black Caucas plans a walk out.
They are trying to make it about race *sigh*

Looks like the vote is in progress right now on c span. Five minute vote almost up,
On agreeing to the resolution:
255 yea

Looked like a lot walked out as planned.

What's up with the lack of moderation on the false info in original post?....
