TIME's Zeke Miller is reporting that according to a White House official, President Obama will not nominate a replacement for Attorney General Eric Holder until after the 2014 midterm elections.
It is rumored Obama will choose current Labor Secretary Tom Perez as Holder's replacement. Because Perez is a far-left radical arguably worse than Holder, it's no surprise the announcement has been delayed. Attorney and DOJ Whistleblower J. Christian Adams has more on who Tom Perez is:
Numerous publications close to the White House have reported that Labor Secretary Tom Perez has emerged as the leading candidate to replace Attorney General Eric Holder. That Perez has a documented and repeating history of dishonesty, racialism, and radicalism shows that this administration feels unrestrained by conventional political wisdom. That the White House is dropping his name before an election should demonstrate to every Republican that Obama is fundamentally transforming politics in corrosive ways that the GOP seems ill-equipped to contain.
To Democrats, Perez is the charming, articulate, and politically savvy secretary of Labor. He is the president’s point man on Hispanic and labor issues. But to anyone objective who has paid close attention, Perez is a menace to the rule of law in ways that make Eric Holder seem like a kitty cat.
Holder announced his resignation last month after six years at the Department of Justice. He will stay in his position until a nominee is confirmed. He is the first attorney general in history to be held in contempt of Congress.
