(FOX NEWS) At least three Democrats have joined the ranks of Republicans planning to vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt over his refusal to turn over Operation Fast and Furious documents.

The Democrats who have taken that stance so far are all conservative-leaning lawmakers facing perilous political circumstances in their home districts. Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, who is leading the charge on contempt, predicted to Fox News that up to 31 Democrats could be considering voting against Holder — in reference to a letter signed by 31 Democrats last year expressing concern about Fast and Furious.

The latest Democrats to announce an anti-Holder stance are Reps. Nick Rahall, D-W.Va., and John Barrow, D-Ga.
