Get You Some!

There is at least one Democrat in congress who seems unwilling to wait until January 20th of next year before attempting to hold the White House to some manner of accountability.

Rep. John Conyers, who has headed up a few efforts in the past is finally pushing the football on holding Harriet Miers and Josh Bolton in contempt of congress.  But, you may ask, wouldn’t that have to go through Mike Mukasey?  The same AG who pretty much proved all the fears and apprehensions of those of us who opposed his confirmation last week?  What if he decides not to enforce it?

No worries, Conyers is also pushing a resolution to file a civil suit which would take the whole matter out of Mukasey’s hands and put it in court where a judge would rule on the proceedings.

This is the kind of thing Democrats should have been doing the moment they gained majority in both houses, and I can imagine only one way to let them know that this is the kind of stuff we elected them for.  Correspondence.

Email John, let him know you appreciate the fact that he is leading the effort to hold the White House accountable for its actions, and show the rest of the Democrats that supporting Conyers is the way to get us to support them the next time they’re up for reelection.

    A contempt of Congress citation doesn’t need to be served by the AG. My understanding is that the Congressional Sgt-at-Arms could arrest them on orders from Conyers. Congress has that power and has exercised it before, if only once or twice.

    Ever since women got the right to vote, it’s been downhill. God put women on Earth to use as needed. Quit whining and get back to work.
