    The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said on Tuesday that General Motors had not met an April 3 deadline to respond to the agency's request for information about the automaker's recall of 2.6 million cars for defective ignition switches.


    In a letter to GM, NHTSA said the automaker had not answered more than a third of the 107 questions the agency asked as part of its investigation into why the automaker waited until February to order a recall when it first learned of the defect more than 10 years ago.

    NHTSA said GM faces a fine of $7,000 a day, starting from the April 3 deadline, until it fully responds to the questions.

    How about Eric Holder not responding to questions about the IRS scandal. Can't he be fined (and jailed)?

    No shit! The justice department will strictly crack down on this egregious ignoring of a law by GM, after it's endless ignoring of laws and stonewalling concerning this highly partisan administrations trampling of the constitution and separation of powers.
