At Thursday’s House Judiciary Committee oversight meeting, Attorney General Eric Holder said he did not know whether visitors to some federal courts are required to produce identification.
“If I were to go to the federal courthouse here in D.C., either as a party or as an attorney, wouldn’t I have to show a government-issued photo ID?” Lungren asked.
“That’s not been my experience, here in DC. I don’t–you know,” Holder replied.
“Some federal courts—are you aware that’s required in some federal courts in this land?” Lungren said.
“I don’t know,” Holder replied.
More Politico: 'The attorney general also insisted that visitors do not need photo ID to enter Justice Department headquarters.'

@ByronYork Holder and Obama seem to follow Montessori more than even Alinsky.

@ByronYork That's good. I hope he thinks visitors don't need photo ID to enter his office.
