Oklahoma Delegation Votes to Hold AG in Contempt (Jun 29, 2012)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma's entire congressional delegation, including an outgoing Democrat, have voted to hold U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for not releasing documents connected to a gun-tracking operation that went wrong.

U.S. Rep. Dan Boren, D-Okla., said in a statement Thursday that Congress had no other choice than to hold him in contempt for "stonewalling, misleading and outright lying" about his role in Operation Fast and Furious.

In Operation Fast and Furious, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents in Arizona stopped intercepting illicitly purchased weapons with the goal of tracking such weapons to high-level arms traffickers. The agents, however, lost track of several hundred weapons in the process.

Republicans Tom Cole, James Lankford, Frank Lucas and John Sullivan also supported the contempt resolution.
