The Partisan Cowardice of Betty McCollum!

Trey Gowdy is a representative from South Carolina, below is his impassioned speech he gave prior to the contempt vote.  Gowdy is a former DOJ prosecutor, and sums up why Eric Holder's contempt vote should be taken seriously, and isn't a partisan witchhunt!

Lets remember why Fast and Furious is a big deal...As a result of Fast and Furious, over 200 Mexicans were killed, and two US law enforcement agents, Brian Terry and Jaime Zapata.  Over 200 people died from weapons that the US Government provided to criminals as part of an investigation.  Again, over 200 people died!  That is why this is a big deal.

Today was the day that the House of Representatives voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over internal documents discussing the Justice Department’s botched Operation Fast and Furious gun-tracking program.  During the investigation, led by Congressman Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee and Senator Charles Grassley, ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee have been accused by Democrats of racism and conducting a witch hunt. Seriously? Again, over 200 people died.  Brian Terry's family deserves an answer.  Jaime Zapata's family deserves an answer.  200 Mexicans families deserve an answer, and the Mexican government deserves an answer.  The American people deserve answers.

Then we have MN CD 4's very own Betty McCollum.  Remember, Betty is the one who denied God in Congress as she led the Pledge of Allegiance, doesn't believe voter fraud exists, supports Hamas instead of Israel, and doesn't see the value of budgets. As you can see, Betty IS an intellectual lightweight!  

I called Betty's office to ask if she had a statement on the upcoming contempt vote on Eric Holder, and I was told Betty had no statement.  I reminded the young lady who responded, that in 2007, Betty called for Attorney General Alberto Gonzales resignation for firing DOJ attorneys.  She didn't have a response, just thanked me for calling.  

Today, Betty did issue a statement which called the contempt proceedings against Eric Holder "Shameful and Shameless", a "Witchunt" and again blamed the Tea Party.  She also said Fast and Furious was a program from the Bush era; it isn't.  This graphic explains the differences in the two programs, but Betty never lets the facts get in the way when trying to smear anyone who doesn't prescribe to her far left ideology.

As today's events around the contempt proceedings unfolded, one could assume Betty would vote against contempt.  Remember, there are 2 dead law enforcement agents, and over 200 dead Mexicans.  One would think our representatives would put policy above politics, but not Betty.  She joined fellow Minnesota representative, Keith Ellison, and the Congressional Black Caucus in walking out of the vote in protest!

From Betty's Twitter stream!

And, there they go! (pic referred to in Betty's tweet)

The sad part is, Betty McCollum is putting politics ahead of doing the right thing.  Two law enforcement officers dead, 200 Mexicans dead, and Betty, as well as the rest that didn't participate in the contempt vote felt it was more important to make a political statement.  

What a slap in the face to the families of Brian Terry and Jaime Zapata!  The families want answers, and Betty and the others only think of themselves.  Thankfully, the contempt vote passed 255-67 with 109 not voting!  Yep, Betty was among the 109 (as well as Keith Ellison).  Betty McCollum is no Trey Gowdy!!!

If you are disgusted by what Betty did today, you can let her know on Twitter @BettyMcCollum04 or on her Facebook pages:

You can also let Keith Ellison know how you feel:

FYI...Betty doesn't like free speech, and your comments will more than likely be deleted; she only likes comments from those that agree with her!

Betty, November is coming, and your constituents will remember your actions today!  As your actions represent your district, and I don't think your district would approve of what you did today! If you want Betty ousted, please share this blog with all your friends and neighbors.
