Issa’s witch hunt leads to a vote

Rep. Darrell Issa’s witch hunt reached its peak with a vote that found Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress. 238 Republicans and 17 Democrats voted for contempt, and only 2 Republicans voting against it. While the vote went on, the Congressional Black Caucus led a walkout, and were joined by most House Democrats. Congressman Keith Ellison of Minnesota was one of them, and he joined Ed Schultz to discuss the vote.
