This administration cherry picks what laws they will follow...the same sex marriage...not gonna panthers held accountable not gonna happen, unions overstep, not gonna prosecute, immigration...not liking that law either so gonna just ignore it and then penalize the state that tries to do something...are we in the USA anymore...the list goes on and set of rules, regs, and laws for taxpaying legal citizens, and another set for everyone else especially if you are a minority, union, or wall street protestor...

UPDATE II: The House has voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in civil contempt, in addition to criminal contempt. Twenty-one Democrats voted with Republicans for civil contempt. Civil contempt will allow the Oversight Committee to proceed with their quest for documents in front of a judge, rather than simply relying on the U.S. Attorney in Washington D.C. to assess the charge.

Legal scholars say there is no practical way for Congress to get the documents except to go to court.

That will put a spotlight not only on Holder but also...
