The effort to impeach Attorney General Eric Holder is in retaliation for his efforts to block the new and restrictive voter ID laws in Texas. Most of the sponsors of the impeachment are Texas members of the House of Representatives. They will fail in their effort, but regard it as good practice for their 2015 effort to impeach President Obama if the GOP do well in the 2014 elections.

Darrell Issa is the GOP chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. In that position he is conducting the investigation of Fast and Furious, the recommended contempt of Congress citation of Attorney General Eric Holder and the ongoing march to bankruptcy of the US Postal Service. It seems incredible to me that one individual can do so much damage to so many just to score political points and distract the voters from GOP obstruction on the economy. Issa is the wealthiest member of Congress and represents what usually is a safe Republican district in Riverside and San Diego counties. If I lived there, I would certainly vote to unseat him. My son is considering a job offer in his district. If he accepts the offer and moves in time to register to vote in that Congressional district, I will try to persuade him to vote against Issa.
