Holder suggests he may resign [View all]

Source: Raw Story

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder told students at the University of Baltimore Law School on Thursday that he’s considering stepping down and letting someone else take over his job for President Barack Obama’s second term.

“That’s something that I’m in the process now of trying to determine,” Holder said, according to a report by CBS News. “I have to think about, can I contribute in a second term?”

He reportedly added: “ really ask myself the question about, do I think there are things that I still want to do? Do I have gas left in the tank? It’s been an interesting and tough four years, so I really just don’t know.”

The nation’s first African American attorney general has not been without his critics. Republicans have especially hammered Holder over the “Fast and Furious” scandal, in which guns purchased in the U.S. and fitted with tracking devices by federal authorities ended up in the hands of Mexican drug cartels, and in some cases were discovered at murder scenes.
