Rep. Allen West isn't impressed with the majority of Congressional Black Caucus, Progressive Caucus, former Speaker Nancy Pelosi and others who decided to walk out in protest of the contempt vote against Attorney General Eric Holder Thursday. West issued a statement on his Facebook page about the incident.
Lady Justice wears a blindfold because she represents objectivity-- in that justice is or should be meted out objectively, without fear or favor, regardless of identity, money, power, gender or race. Today the Congressional Black Caucus and other liberal Members of Congress judged the Attorney General by the color of his skin, and not by the content of his character. I am disappointed my colleagues would rather engage in a political stunt to distract the American people from knowing the truth behind the Attorney General’s disregard of the law and disrespect of congressional oversight to provide requested documents. I stood on the House floor and cast my vote for Justice--Justice for Brian Terry, Justice for the American people and Justice for our Constitutional Republic.
West called for Holder's resignation last November.
