Virginians React To House Vote Backing Anti-Obama Lawsuit

The University of Virginia’s Larry Sabato believes a recent House vote to sue President Obama will go nowhere. Sabato is not surprised GOP leaders took this action. He says many Republicans are adamantly opposed to the Obama agenda. Local GOP congressmen Robert Hurt, Bob Goodlatte and Eric Cantor voted for a resolution supporting a lawsuit. Sabato also predicts the Democrats who control the U.S. Senate won’t consider the bill. On another topic, Sabato says former IRS official Lois Lerner wrote some very unprofessional e-mails. Those messages contain some vulgar language. Lerner’s e-mails were released Wednesday by Republican House members.
