                          PERSONAL EXPLANATION

                                 ______
                                 

                       HON. JANICE D. SCHAKOWSKY

                              of illinois

                    in the house of representatives

                         Friday, June 29, 2012

  Ms. SCHAKOWSKY. Mr. Speaker, on rollcall Nos. 441, 442 I would not 
participate in what I strongly believe was an abuse of power by the 
majority who, for illegitimate reasons, chose to hold the Attorney 
General, Eric Holder, in contempt of Congress. I was against the 
rollcall votes.
  Had I been present, I would have voted ``nay.''
