Investigating Fast and Furious is about finding justice for Brian Terry’s family and scores of Mexicans that have died due to illegally trafficked weapons.
But the Congressional Black Caucus don’t see it that way. They see this as a racially motivated political witch hunt. In a letter, they write:
“We adamantly oppose this partisan attack and refuse to participate in any vote that would tarnish the image of Congress or of an attorney general who has done nothing but work tirelessly to protect the rights of the American people. We must reflect upon why we are elected to this body and choose now to stand up for justice,”
“We call upon all members of Congress to stand with us during a press conference on the Capitol Building steps during this appalling series of votes to discuss our nation’s most significant priority — creating jobs. At this critically important time in our nation, we must work as colleagues rather than political enemies.”
