In a vote hardly mentioned by the mainstream media, 142 House Democrats favored an amendment that in essence demands Obama Attorney General Eric Holder stop lying to Congress – as well as preventing the Obama Department of Justice from suing over voter I.D. laws.
From The Hill:
House to Eric Holder: Stop lying to us
The House Wednesday evening voted overwhelmingly to prevent the Justice Department from using taxpayer funds to lie to Congress.
The vote came in a Wednesday evening series of amendments to a bill, H.R. 5326, funding the Justice Department for 2013. Members approved the language in a 381-41 vote; all 41 “no” votes came from Democrats, although 142 Democrats voted with Republicans in support of the amendment.
The vote reflects the ongoing frustration Republicans — and apparently some Democrats — have with Attorney General Eric Holder.
…The House also approved other controversial funding limitation amendments, including one to prevent Justice from defending the 2010 healthcare law, and to prevent Justice from suing states over over voter ID laws.
