Democrat: Maybe Committee Should Hold Issa in Contempt (CNS News)

"The only reason we haven't been able to get the truth from Lois Lerner is because of one person. And that is our chairman," Rep. Steve Horsford (D-Nev.) told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday, as the panel considered a contempt of Congress resolution against the former IRS official.

"So if my colleagues want to hold someone in contempt, maybe they should look to the person holding the gavel, since it's his poor handling of this investigation that has resulted in why we can't get the truth that the people deserve."
