Matheson hearts Eric Holder


Jim Matheson is refusing to answer questions about Eric Holder and the increasing calls from Congress for Holder’s resignation.

As described by the Washington Times,

Matheson is the only Democrat in the Utah congressional delegation and attempts to distance himself from his party, given the remarkably conservative district he represents. Although he voted against the the original health care law in 2010, he voted with the Democrats in January of 2011 against the repeal of the health care law.

And then:

Matheson’s campaign office and his Washington D.C. press secretary refuse to answer any inquiries on Fast and Furious, and it appears that Rep, Matheson wants AG Holder to remain at the helm of the Justice Department.

The Daily Caller tried to follow up as well:

After his staff ignored the Washington Times’ Kerry Picket’s questions on the matter, TheDC asked Matheson spokeswoman Alyson Heyrend if the congressman thinks Holder should resign. TheDC’s request for comment went unanswered.

The Daily Caller makes it clear what Mayor Mia Love’s stance is:

Unlike Matheson, Love called for Holder’s resignation

“Mr. Holder has been appointed to do a job – he’s been hired to do a job – and I have not yet found a good response to ‘what did he know and when did he know it?’” Love said of Holder and Fast and Furious then. “I have not been able to find that. And, if you can’t answer that question, there’s a big problem there. If you think about the amount of lives that have been lost and you can’t answer those questions, then you’re gone. You’re not fit to do that job anymore. And, yes, personally, I think he should resign.”
