Chambliss Not Impressed With Holder's Response to SWATing

First, a SWATing refresher:

What does the far left do when they disagree with conservative bloggers? They call the police from a phone program pretending to be (insert conservative blogger here), say something horrific such as "I just shot my wife," hang up and then laugh as a local SWAT team descends on the house of (insert conservative blogger here) for no real reason.

This ladies and gentleman is not a joke, it's what far left activists are doing to silence conservatives. CNN contributor and Red State editor-in-chief Erick Erickson and his family were targeted over the weekend. The SWATting occurred just after Erickson had written a piece about left wing domestic terrorist and convicted Speedway bomber Brett Kimberlin. Who is Brett Kimberlin?  From Lee Stranahan, the writer who first exposed Kimberlin and encouraged others to do the same.

A month ago, 80 members of Congress called for the Justice Department to investigate SWATing in a letter sent directly to Attorney General Eric Holder. Georgia Senator Saxby Chambliss was the first member of Congress to call for an investigation and now a month later, he is less than impressed with Holder's response to the situation. He sent Holder another letter yesterday showing his disappointment in the non-action from the DOJ to address the issue.

“I remain extremely concerned about the danger SWAT-ting presents, and am worried about its use as a tool for silencing political speech,” Chambliss wrote Wednesday. “You and your department should be equally worried about these attempts at intimidation.”

“Instead of addressing the dangerous trend of SWAT-ting, Attorney General Holder and the Justice Department have chosen to continue their unresponsiveness to congressional inquiries,” he said.
