House Votes to Table Resolution Condemning Darrell Issa

Hours after the chairwoman of the Congressional Black Caucus introduced a resolution condemning Rep. Darrell Issa, Republicans shelved it.  

The House on Thursday voted 211-186, on a party line vote, to table the privileged resolution that would have implicated the chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee with violating "Clause 1 of Rule XXIII of the Code of Official Conduct, which states that 'A Member, Delegate, Resident Commissioner, Officer or Employee of the House shall behave at all times in a manner that shall reflect creditably on the House."  

Ten members voted "present," including most members of the ethics committee and Issa.  

On Wednesday, the California Republican shut off the microphone of ranking member Elijah E. Cummings as the Maryland Democrat sought to ask a procedural question and make general remarks following IRS official Lois Lerner's refusal to participate in panel proceedings.
