House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, joined her Congressional Black Caucus colleagues and announced on the House floor that she would boycott the contempt vote against Attorney General Eric Holder.
"Just when you think you’ve seen it all. Just when you
think they couldn’t possibly go any further over the edge, they come up
with something like this. It’s stunning. It truly is… It’s stunning,"
Minority Leader Pelosi
said. "It stops you in your tracks. And how far
will they go? Have they a limit? Apparently not."
