Labrador Calls For Holder Resignation

Saying Eric Holder is “either lying or grossly incompetent,' 1st Congressional District Rep. Raul Labrador today called for the attorney general's resignation. Labrador has joined a list of Republicans criticizing Holder's May 3 testimony about Operation Fast and Furious, a gun trafficking network established in an attempt to infiltrate Mexican drug cartels. “It is clear from recently released documents that Mr. Holder did in fact know about Fast and Furious well before he publicly admitted,” said Labrador in a news release. “It is clear he has not been honest about the extent of his involvement with the failed Fast and Furious program and should not be entrusted with managing the Department of Justice. He cannot avoid responsibility for his involvement with a government program that directly led to the tragic death of a decorated U.S. Border Patrol agent”/Kevin Richert, Idaho Statesman. More here.

Question: Should Eric Holder resign as a result of Operation Fast & Furious?
