We’ve all heard that the acting head of the ATF was going to step down over the Fast and Furious scandal that let guns go from America to the Mexican drug cartels.
Well, not so fast. Seems now he wants to testify to Congress!
The acting director of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is strongly resisting pressure to step down because of growing controversy over the agency’s surveillance program that allowed U.S. guns to flow unchecked into Mexico, according to several federal sources in Washington.
Kenneth E. Melson, who has run the bureau for two years, is reportedly eager to testify to Congress about the extent of his and other officials’ involvement in the operation, code-named Fast and Furious.
Could this be Obama’s Watergate? Let’s face it, you don’t think the buck stops on Holder’s desk, do you?
