The Washington Times reported on Monday:

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder will step down this year, he said in an interview with the New Yorker’s Jeffrey Toobin in the magazine’s Feb. 17 edition.

Last November, Mr. Holder, the first black attorney general, told CBS News he didn’t have “any plans” to step down.

Mr. Holder has made voting rights the test case of his tenure, the New Yorker reported. He has been a vocal critic of the Supreme Court case that invalidated key parts of the Voting Rights Act and has supported Congressional action to renew and revise the law.

The Obama Administration has been under relentless pressure in regards to Eric Holder’s actions and activities. He played a key role in Fast and Furious and has played a key “watchdog” role in squashing controversies for the administration through his office, by refusing to investigate or otherwise stonewalling the attempts of others. He has been investigated for perjury, signed off on a warrant to spy on a Fox News journalist, and been threatened with impeachment, all in the last year.

His list of controversies and involvement from the IRS Scandal to threatening states which fight for the preservation of the 2nd Amendment are too numerous to mention.

In the end, one must wonder if this was a personal choice or if Eric Holder was given a choice to leave or be fired.

Either way…good riddance.

That’s one down and a whole lot more to go.
