I'm not a racist. You're a racist.

The House of Representatives is scheduled to vote tomorrow on a resolution holding Eric Holder, Attorney General of the United States, to be in contempt of Congress.

The National Journal reports:
The Congressional Black Caucus has called a members-only "emergency" meeting on Thursday to plot a "walkout strategy" ahead of the scheduled contempt vote of Attorney General Eric Holder later in the day. The plans, detailed in an email from the executive director of the Congressional Black Caucus obtained by the Alley, include circulating a letter disapproving of the vote and having lawmakers walk out of the Capitol to hold a press conference during the roll call.
Members of the House of Representatives have created a pile of special-interest "caucuses."  In addition to the Black Caucus, there's a Bike Caucus, a Congressional Bourbon Caucus, a Congressional Caucus on Armenian Issues, a Congressional Diabetes Caucus, a 4-H Caucus, a Shellfish Caucus and a Second Amendment Caucus.

We're just wondering what it is about the Attorney General, or the ATF's gunrunning operation (the scandal that's sparked the contempt citation), that is of particular and overriding interest to the Congressional Black Caucus.
