Democrats may force Republicans Go On Record About Propagannon

Via Rawstory:

House Democrats will force a vote in four House committees to put the Republican majority on the record with regards to investigating a discredited White House correspondent who allegedly had access to confidential information, including a memorandum naming CIA operative Valerie Plame, RAW STORY has learned.

The procedure, called a Resolution of Inquiry, enjoins the Intelligence, Judiciary, Armed Services and International Relations Committees fourteen legislative days to decide whether to authorize the request for records or refuse to do so.

Democrats expect Republicans to vote down the measure, but feel it might provide leverage in future Congressional elections, as it will force members to go on the record as to whether they support the investigation and its relation to the outed CIA operative.
