WASHINGTON, DC - Congressman Ted Poe (TX-02) released the following statement in response to the Minority Leaderís assertion that Congressí investigation of Attorney General Eric Holder and Fast & Furious is part of an effort to suppress votes:
ìNancy Pelosi is wrong again,î said Poe. The Congressional investigation into Fast and Furious is about the suppression of gunwalking, not voters. As the minority leader should know, the Attorney General lost all credibility to investigate Fast & Furious long before Congress voted to hold him in contempt.
ìThis is about the Chief Law Enforcement Officer hiding evidence from Congress and the American people, running out the clock and delaying the truth until the polls close in November. No one is above the law, especially not the Attorney General.î
