WASHINGTON (WAVY) - While controversy surrounds government in Washington, Congressman Scott Rigell is calling for the resignation of Attorney General Eric Holder.
According to Rep. Rigell's office, the Virginia-based congressman believes Holder is mismanaging the Department of Justice and has created an ‘erosion of trust in the government' after controversies regarding government intrusion.
One of 47 members of the House of Representatives calling for Holder's resignation in a letter to President Obama, Rigell says Holder has not served the president well.
"To call for the resignation of a Member of the President's Cabinet is not something I take lightly," Rigell said in a statement. "However, the managerial incompetence and several of the controversies surrounding this Administration fall upon Mr. Holder. I believe the Attorney General should resign or be replaced. It is time for him to go."
This is not the first time Rigell has called for Holder's resignation. In 2012, Rigell voted to hold Holder in contempt of court for ‘failure to cooperate with the House of Representatives' investigation of the Fast and Furious Program.'
