Democratic lawmakers made good on their threat Thursday to stage a walkout during the House’s votes to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress.
Led by the Congressional Black Caucus and joined by Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.), members can be seen leaving the House Floor between a vote to refer the contempt resolution back to the House Oversight Committee and a final vote on the criminal contempt resolution.
Along with Pelosi, Minority Whip Steny Hoyer (Md.) and Reps. Elijah Cummings (Ga.) and Judy Chu (Calif.) could be seen leaving. After they left the floor, Democrats spoke to reporters outside the Capitol building.
“What is happening on the floor of the House is a misuse of power,” Pelosi said. “It is an abuse of power and it is the wrong thing to do.”

Am I the only one that thinks that the person with the biggest set of balls in the Democratic Party is Nancy Pelosi?
