A. I’ve read Arizona’s immigration bill:
REPRESENTATIVE TED POE, (R-TEXAS): …Have you read the Arizona law?
ERIC HOLDER, ATTORNEY GENERAL: I have not had a chance to, I’ve glanced at it. I have not read it.
POE: It’s ten pages. It’s a lot shorter than the healthcare bill which was 2,000 pages long. I’ll give you my copy of it if you would like to have a copy. Even though you haven’t read the law, do you have an opinion as to whether it’s Constitutional?
HOLDER: I have not really, I have not been briefed yet.
And AG Holder is being paid to do that, too. He’s not being paid to opine on it as a top administration official without thoroughly researching it first.
Or is he?
PS: Rep. Ted Poe just wasn’t having any of that, was he?
