A First

In addition to being the nation's first African-American U.S. attorney general, Holder is also the first cabinet member to be held in contempt of Congress. The party-line vote was the result of his refusal to turn over about 1,500 additional pages of documents related to the gun-tracking program Operation Fast and Furious.
