In a new editorial published in The Grio, Wade Henderson, President and CEO of The Leadership Conference and the Joseph L. Rauh, Jr. Chair of Public Interest Law, says House Republicans are considering an extreme measure in a bringing up a vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress.

Wade Henderson writes, "The House of Representatives has not cited a cabinet-level official for contempt in modern times and using this tactic would distract the entire Justice Department from its core mission of enforcing our nation’s laws.

The attempt to cite Holder for contempt is not about justice, oversight, or government reform. It’s intended to create a stain on the Office of the Attorney General.

This is an unprecedented detour from the real business of the House and an abuse of congressional authority. I hope that House Republican leaders reconsider their position."
