In The Region:

Cleveland Congresswoman Marcia Fudge introduced a resolution lambasting Republican Rep. Darrell Issa for his unusual actions in a hearing this week. But, as WKSU’s M.L. Schultze reports, Republicans quickly killed her motion.

Congressman Issa surprised even veteran Washington watchers when he refused to let Democrats speak during a hearing by his Government Oversight Committee on the IRS Wednesday.

He closed the hearing before Democrats could break in, then cut off the microphone of ranking Democrat Elijah Cummings when he tried anyway.

Marcia Fudge wrote to House Speaker John Boehner asking him to remove Issa from the chairmanship. Then she introduced her resolution, which reads in part:

“The House of Representatives strongly condemns the offensive and disrespectful manner in which Chairman Darrell E. Issa conducted the hearing.”

But Boehner backed Issa, and by a vote of 211 to 186, Fudge’s resolution was tabled.

The focus of the hearing, Lois Lerner, is at the center of allegations that the IRS targeted conservative nonprofits. Politico says Republicans are now trying to decide if she should be found in contempt of Congress.
