The Right Thing To Do

Eric Holder was ruled in contempt of Congress this week due to his not being fully forthcoming with regards to “Fast and Furious”. This NY Times editorial writer seems to think that the contempt ruling was a “pointless partisan fight”, in which he accuses the GOP of trying to make a pretty serious situation nothing more than political jockeying in an election year. I don’t feel like he’s on target. Think about what we’re trying to find here: The *top law enforcement officer in the land* is possibly hiding facts from the American public, in order to save face.

What about getting the truth? What about cutting through corruption? It’s okay to “maybe” be corrupt in order to not get caught? I think I deserve to know what exactly happened, and the President’s last minute “executive privilege” order only solidifies the fact that there’s something to hide. Why can’t our politicians start working for their constituents for a change?
