Hartzler on Holder resignation: It's about time

(From Fourth District Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler)

Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler (R-MO), in response to the news that Attorney General Eric Holder is resigning, has released the following statement:

“I have long felt that Attorney General Holder should resign. The Attorney General is the chief law enforcement officer of this country and is responsible for ensuring federal laws are enforced; and we simply haven’t seen that from Mr. Holder. From the Fast and Furious scandal to the IRS and Lois Lerner scandal, Mr. Holder has shown, time and again, that he has not been upholding his duties to the American people. His resignation is a service to the public. I am hopeful that President Obama will appoint a successor that has a greater dedication to the upholding and enforcement of the law.”
