Nancy Pelosi, one-trick pony:
Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Republicans are investigating Eric Holder because they want to distract him from stopping voter suppression laws.
Note to Politico, which is reporting this story: The “voter suppression laws” Pelosi is referring to are voter ID laws, which have been upheld as constitutional and have been shown to increase the share of minority voters in Indiana. Politico’s line grossly misinforms its readers.
The argument from the California Democrat is quite unique [to say the least -bp], as the party’s argument has long been that the attorney general has provided enough documentation in the gun-walking investigation, and Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) is on a witch hunt.
Pelosi took it in a new direction during a 30-minute press conference, when she also lambasted Republicans as intransigent and unfit to govern.
“Contempt of Congress, contempt of Congress,” Pelosi said. “To frivolously use that really important vehicle to undermine the person who is assigned to stop the voter suppression in our country. I’m telling you, this is connected. It is no accident. It is a decision and it is as clear as can be. It’s not only to monopolize his time, it’s to undermine his name. To undermine his name, undermine his name, as he goes forward to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”
She ain’t sayin’ it’s aliens, but it’s aliens.
