It was a historic day on Capitol Hill.
By a vote of 255 to 67, the U.S. House of Representatives held a sitting attorney general in contempt of Congress for the first time in history. Most Republicans voted in favor of contempt, and about 100 Democrats walked out before the vote.
This all stems from the "Fast and Furious" operation, where the government sold and tracked 2,000 guns, hoping to trace them to Mexican drug cartels. Critics in Congress say Attorney General Eric Holder failed to hand over documents related to the operation.
But the Republicans weren't alone – they were joined by 17 Democrats in the historic vote. OutFront tonight is one of them, Rep. Jason Altmire of Pennsylvania.
