Boehner spokesman wonders what happened to last Obama gas price crackdown

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--After President Barack Obama added a gas price crackdown event to his schedule, the spokesman for House Speaker John Boehner wondered what happened to Obama's probe last year of soaring gas prices.

"Can someone forward me the reports from the President's "Oil and Gas Price Fraud Working Group" - you know, the one that launched a year ago under AG Holder and has "met only a handful of times and has never reported to the public." I can't find the report online, but surely they uncovered some fraud given today's announcement," said Brendan Buck, Boehner's Press Secretary, in an e-mail.

Link to the April 21, 2011 press release on the Holder task force announcement is HERE.
