A Republican World – ‘Republicans Try To Ban Eric Holder From Getting Paid’
‘On Thursday, Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-TX) introduced the Contempt Act — a bill that would withhold the pay of any federal officials who have been held in contempt by Congress’.
‘That would prevent exactly one member of the Obama administration from getting a paycheck: Eric Holder’.
‘Conveniently, Farenthold’s bill would not require a federal court to convict the employee in order for his/her pay to be cut off’
‘So the fact that the contempt vote against Holder was a thinly veiled partisan attack with little legal consequence would not stop House Republicans from penalizing the attorney general’.
