News’ stand on Holder is a pleasant surprise

I am glad, no, let’s make that overjoyed, to see The News has declared Eric Holder unfit to hold the office of attorney general. My question is, why did it take so long?

I would have thought his refusal in 2009 to prosecute a group charged with intimidating voters in Philadelphia would have been sufficient cause. Or any of the string of subsequent improprieties that culminated in his designation last year as the first sitting cabinet member to be held in contempt of Congress.

Some in power in Washington and Albany seem to think the Constitution is just a list of suggestions. The News is welcomed to the ranks of those that believe our Constitution stands for something.
