Press Release

WASHINGTON D.C. – Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) responds to his action regarding H.Res.711, a resolution to find Attorney General Eric Holder in criminal contempt of Congress.

“I joined my colleagues from the Congressional Black Caucus, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, the Asian Pacific Caucus, The Progressive Caucus, and others from the House Democratic Caucus in refraining to participate in the contempt vote against Attorney General Eric Holder in connection with the Fast and Furious investigation” said Congressman Bishop.

“This time honored and dignified process established by our founding fathers is being corrupted for partisan purposes and I stand with my colleagues in the House who refuse to validate and legitimize this attack on the dignity of the House of Representatives by participating in this poisonous process.”
