Eric Holder confirmed…

Eric Holder confirmed as Attorney General in a 75-21 vote.

http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/02/02/holder.confirmed/index.html

Holder had a testy exchange with the Senate Judiciary Committee’s ranking Republican, Arlen Specter, who questioned Holder’s “fitness” for the office. Holder shot back that Specter was “getting close to the line in questioning my integrity,””

Damn straight we’re questioning your integrity.  That was the issue that should have been questioned. You lied to the American people and used force of arms.  You attempted to cover up another botched use of arms.  Integrity…is not a virtue you possess Mr. Holder. [My Opinion]

***

Anyone know who voted for him, and who didn’t? It’s clear some Republicans voted for him as well. But I am curious if any Democrats opposed his appointment.

Anyone know where to find the results of that vote and who voted for and who voted against?
