Steny Hoyer Expects Some Democrats to Defect on Contempt Of Congress Vote

Now that the National Rifle Association has put its dog in the fight do not be surprised to see 20 to 30 House Democrats vote to hold Eric holder in contempt of Congress. A large defection of Democrats from swing states who value their NRA endorsements would give the White House fits, allow Congressman Darrell Issa to claim his position enjoyed bipartisan support and further drive the media coverage of a story that has gone virtually unreported for 18 months.
The chief Democratic House head counter, Congressman Steny Hoyer of Maryland, declined to tell reporters how many defections he expected, but acknowledged that some in his party might be inclined to put their own political futures ahead of Holder's. Last week the NRA let it be known that the upcoming contempt of Congress vote would count when it tabulated legislator's voting records.
