Democratic US Senate candidate Joe Donnelly appeared on Afternoons with Amos and explained why he was one of a handful of Democrats who voted a Contempt of Congress citation against Attorney General Eric Holder.  The Congressional Black Caucus and a majority of Democrats in the House opposed the GOP led effort to condemn Holder for a botched Justice Department weapons sting operation called Fast and Furious.  Many Blacks and Democrats regard the effort against Holder to be politically motivated and a reaction to Holder fighting against attempts to suppress minority voters this election.  Donnelly explained that he voted that way because of long standing concerns about the Executive Branch of Government withholding vital information from Congress.  Donnelly said he voted against two Bush Administration officials in 2007 for the same reasons.  Donnelly also expressed his strong opposition to GOP attempts to suppress and restrict voting this year.  Donnelly also expressed his admiration for the work Attorney General Holder has been doing in office.  Donnelly also talked with Amos and listeners about jobs, Indiana’s slowing improving economy and his strong support for the Health Care Reform victory and the President Barack Obama‘s policies.
