Nunnelee calls for Holder’s resignation over botched Fast and Furious operarion

Republican Reps. Jeff Landry of Louisiana and Alan Nunnelee of Mississippi both told The Daily Caller on Thursday that they think Attorney General Eric Holder should resign immediately over Operation Fast and Furious. When combined Louisianna Rep. Charles Boustany’s call Thursday morning, that makes 46 congressmen who are demanding that Holder step aside now.

“The Fast and Furious operation was responsible for the death of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and much criminal activity in the U.S. and Mexico,” Landry told TheDC. “The American people deserve answers and accountability —Attorney General Ho

In his statement demanding Holder’s resignation, Nunnelee pointed out how thinks Holder has misled Congress and the American people.

“It has become apparent that the attorney general is simply not being honest with the American people or Congress,” Nunnelee said in an email to TheDC. “His admission last week in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee that he misled Congress in previous hearings was the final straw for me. He has repeatedly changed his story and stonewalled congressional investigators’ efforts to get to the truth. The American people deserve better from its top law enforcement official.”
