More news on Eric Holder and Fast and Furious

Holder claims (7/3/12): "I've become a symbol of what they don't like about positions this Justice Department has taken . . . I am also a proxy for the president in an election year. You have to be exceedingly naive to think that vote was about documents."

Ethics complaint filed against Holder with DC bar.  I probably would have waited until the 10 days that Holder is given to file were up (7/3/12):
While District of Columbia courts have not (yet) been involved, there is no question that the Congress has found the Attorney General guilty of contempt under conditions that rise to your definition of ‘serious crime’,” the letter reminds the board. “It would also appear that Attorney General Holder is required to report the contempt finding to you within the ten day requirement, and that the Bar ‘shall’ investigate this matter.  Eric Holder believes that he will escape serious consequences of the congressional investigations of the Fast and Furious scandal simply by running out the clock on his tenure,” Vanderboegh noted in his report. “We intend this ethics complaint to place him on notice that his lies and malfeasances will follow him until justice is done.”
An old issue that I shouldn't have let pass.  BATF retaliates against whistleblowers (6/23/11).
"ATF served Special Agent Vince Cefalu with termination paperwork today."
