56th member of Congress calls for Holder’s resignation – Louisiana Republican Rep. John Fleming is now calling for Attorney General Eric Holder’s resignation, making him the 56th congressman to demand that Holder step down amid the Operation Fast and Furious scandal. “The nation’s chief law enforcement officer has created a highly politicized atmosphere at the Department of Justice, and the time has come for him to resign or be fired,” Fleming said in a statement. “Attorney General Eric Holder is either withholding what he knows about Operation Fast and Furious, and the guns that ended up arming Mexican drug cartels, or he is incompetent for not knowing how the secret program worked.”
