It was hoped that the scandal-plagued Attorney General, (who was held in contempt of congress), would step down after the president’s first term, but Obama asked him to stay on for a second term, and horrifyingly enough, Holder accepted.
Now, in the wake of his latest scandal – the AP wiretapping brouhaha he has the MSM outraged, and it looks like this “utterly clueless” Attorney General will finally step down.
Michael Sneed of the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting that “Holder’s days are numbered,” and Massachussetts Governor Deval Patrick is Obama’s pick to replace him.
Sneed hears President Barack Obama, who is this/close to Holder, has set his sights on Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick as a possible replacement “when the heat dies down on the latest hot-button scandals to hit the U.S. Justice Department,” said a top White House source.
Last year, Holder became a hot button over a congressional probe of the sale of government guns to drug cartels.
This time it’s the double whammy of an IRS scandal and the U.S. Justice Department’s seizure of Associated Press reporters’ phone records — which has caused a media uproar.
Sneed hears that Obama will wait until the furor dies down so he and ValJar’s close bud will be able to leave with *ahem* “his reputation intact.”
Not sure how corrupt his replacement Deval Patrick is. We’ll have to look into that because the Obama Regime needs a strong enabler at Justice. I have heard he’s not a great governor.
Well, well, looks like Patrick will fit in just fine with this crowd:
