    Got a reply from one of my senators about her vote for the attorney general.

    Thank you . . .



    . . for contacting me about the confirmation of U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder. I understand your concerns.



    As you may know, Attorney General Holder was confirmed by the Senate on February 2, 2009. While I understand your opposition to his appointment, I feel he is extremely talented and the best qualified person for the task of heading up the Justice Department.



    Attorney General Holder received strong support from former White House officials of several administrations, civil rights organizations, law enforcement organizations, community service support groups, and crimes victims' advocates. He has an outstanding record of service and will serve the people of the United States with integrity. I will monitor Attorney General Holder's performance, and make sure to keep your views in mind should any related legislation come before me for a vote.



    Thank you again for contacting me. Please continue to keep me informed about issues of concern to you and your family.



    Sincerely,

    Debbie Stabenow

    United States Senator

    Please feel free to send me more valueless input, we in the nobility get such a laugh out of this stuff from the peasantry.

    I got a very similar (standard response) letter from our other Democratic U.S. Senator, Carl Levin. Eric Holder is just the AG that D. Stabenow and C. Levin are looking for... anti 2nd Amendment.

    Thank you . . .

    . . for contacting me about the nomination of Eric Holder to be the next Attorney General of the United States. I understand your concerns.

    Mr. Holder's nomination will come before the Senate Judiciary Committee when the 111th Congress convenes in the new year. I fully expect that my colleagues on this committee will vigorously question Mr. Holder about his background and qualifications. Should this nominee come before me for a vote, I will certainly keep your views in mind.

    Thank you again for contacting me. Please continue to keep me informed about issues of concern to you and your family.

    Sincerely,

    Angry At least you got a response.

    I wrote my rep Rosa DeLauro concerning Geitner, Holder, AND HR 45(?). I received zilch. Needless to say I will be volunteering quite a bit of time this year and next for anyone who decides to run against her. since she is already as anti 2A as is humanly possible, it will be easy to support someone else.

    Here is the letter that I received today from Sen. John Ensign (R,NV).

    Dear

    Thank you for taking the time to contact me regarding the nomination of Eric H. Holder, Jr., for Attorney General of the United States. I appreciate the opinion of every Nevadan and am always grateful to those who take the time to inform me of their views.

    As you know, President Obama has selected Eric H. Holder, Jr., to be our next Attorney General. I believe that Mr. Holder was a highly questionable choice. Although he has an extensive résumé and relevant experience, I could not support his appointment to be the chief law enforcement officer in the United States.



    Sound ethical judgment and political independence are two qualities required of an Attorney General. Mr. Holder's record and many of his professional decisions gave me serious doubt that he was an appropriate choice for this important position. While Deputy Attorney General in the Clinton administration, Mr. Holder made several decisions that demonstrated a lack of good judgment and an inability to resist political pressure. As Deputy Attorney General, he recommended a pardon for Marc Rich, a fugitive wanted for tax evasion who brokered oil deals with Iran during the Iranian hostage crisis. He also supported clemency for members of a Puerto Rican terrorist group responsible for a New York City restaurant bombing and a bus attack that killed two U.S. Navy sailors and wounded nine others.



    In addition, Mr. Holder's position on the Second Amendment and national security is unsettling. Mr. Holder's record indicates that he believes the right to bear arms is a collective right for law enforcement purposes and not an inherent constitutional right for all law-abiding individuals. His support of the District of Columbia's gun ban, recently ruled unconstitutional, and other national gun control laws is very worrisome. Furthermore, Mr. Holder refused to take a position on what to do with prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, an issue that is very contentious and a high priority considering the administration's call to close the prison within the year.



    It is my hope that Attorney General Holder will exercise good judgment and work ethically to keep our country safe and enforce our nation's laws. I will monitor his progress to ensure that this happens. The Senate confirmed Mr. Holder on February 2, 2009, by a vote of 75-21.



    Once again, thank you for contacting me on this very important issue. Should you have any other questions or would like to sign up for my monthly newsletter, please feel free to write or e-mail me via my website at John Ensign, United States Senator of Nevada: Home.



    Sincerely,



    JOHN ENSIGN

    United States Senator
