    Reps. Issa & Mack call for Geithner's resignation

    Issa calls for Geithner's resignation

    Calif. Republican Rep. Darrell Issa will soon announce he's joining Rep. Connie Mack IV (R-Fla.) in calling for Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner to step down, according to an aide.

    House Republican Conference Chairman Mike Pence (R-IN) didn't go quite as far -- but didn't offer words of kindness or support either.

    "I think Tim Geithner should not have been confirmed as Treasury Secretary of the United States of America," he told our Alex Isenstadt.

    Rep. Mack Calls for Geithner to Resign or Be Fired Over AIG Bonuses
    The Florida Republican becomes the first lawmaker on Capitol Hill to call for the treasury secretary's ouster.

    Florida Republican Rep. Connie Mack called for Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner to lose his job Wednesday, becoming the first Capitol Hill lawmaker to call for his ouster over AIG's using tens of millions of taxpayer dollars for executive bonuses.

    Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., later joined in the call Wednesday.

    Mack told FOX News that Geithner should resign or the administration should fire him.

    "The American people certainly don't see any competence in him. And I think he's got a lot of questions to answer," he said.

    Mack said in a written statement released earlier in the day that President Obama should nominate a new treasury secretary with "the experience and leadership skills America deserves."

    "Quite simply, the Timothy Geithner experience has been a disaster. The Treasury Department is in disarray. Taxpayer dollars are being wasted," he said.
