Democrats defect to vote for contempt against Holder

A growing number of Democrats are defecting from the ranks to vote in favor of a contempt of Congress citation against Attorney General Eric Holder, according to several news reports published late this afternoon.

Holder's problems began to mount when an attempt by House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, to strike a deal with Holder that would ditch the contempt citation in exchange for subpoenaed documents failed.

Once it became clear that Holder and the White House would not cooperate on the documents, Boehner announced today that the full House vote on contempt will proceed Thursday as planned.
