Melson Reassigned Over Gun Screw-Up

Acting ATF Director Kenneth Melson talks with the media about the "Fast and Furious" fiasco.

The acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms has been reassigned to a lesser position due to his involvement in the so-called “Fast and Furious” weapons fiasco, which resulted in the ATF selling literally thousands of automatic weapons to buyers representing Mexican drug cartels.

“Really the dumbass should go to prison” said Attorney General Eric Holder. “But since that might reveal my own and the Obama administration’s role in this thing, that obviously isn’t going to happen. So instead we’ve sent him to the oblivion of being a ‘senior adviser’, like in Antarctica.”
