1. It's how they'll get the more cowardly Democrats to vote with them

And look what I just found at the Star Tribune's website:

Collin Peterson to join GOP in contempt vote

At least four House Democrats plan to vote with Republicans to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress and dozens more may join them, potentially undercutting the Obama administration's argument that the vote is an election-year ploy by Republicans.

The four Democrats -- Collin Peterson of Minnesota, John Barrow of Georgia, Nick Rahall of West Virginia and Jim Matheson of Utah -- maintain generally moderate voting records and face challenging re-election campaigns in moderate- or Republican-leaning districts.

Their votes may be influenced by the National Rifle Association, which supports the contempt citation and said it plans to track how members vote Thursday in determining future endorsements. The four have received NRA endorsements in the past...

...The list of supportive Democrats could grow. Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., a Democratic member of the House Appropriations subcommittee, said that "a couple dozen" other Democrats could join with Republicans because of NRA pressure. Schiff said: "Is it just the NRA's fight with the attorney general and are the members who support the contempt vote, from whatever party tomorrow, merely supporting the NRA and others in a partisan attack on the attorney general?"


Why the DFL keeps endorsing this ass is beyond me.

4. The NRA stopped being a honest broker a long time ago

They're just a bunch of partisan GOP hacks.

Do they have a tax exempt status we can revoke?
