GOP leadership rankled by resolution calling for attorney general’s head

More than 100 Republicans in the House are clamoring for Eric Holder’s head, but GOP leaders are reluctant to vote on a measure suggesting the ouster of the U.S. attorney general.

Freshman Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.) is leading the charge. He said he won’t let up until he gets a vote on his resolution.

But top-ranking Republicans tasked with scheduling a vote on the measure are playing hot potato with the issue, arguing that it’s not their responsibility while overlooking a growing chorus of outrage within their conference.
