My gut reaction, without checking a dictionary, is that the idiom is 'to call so. to account,' in which it's a noun, with a meaning like 'reckoning,' 'bottom line,' 'net sum of right vs. wrong,' 'judgment,' etc. There's not necessarily a 'for sth.' at all, but if it's there, it's in the sense of 'wegen.'
I don't think 'hold' or 'bring' are equally idiomatic collocations with the noun, though they might show up very occasionally.
However. There is indeed also a verb 'to account for sth.,' and so you could also conceivably have other collocations with it that happen to use various verbs.
to call / urge / require / bring / induce / etc. so. to ...
to demand / insist / require that so. ...
... account for (= to explain, justify, take responsibility for, etc.)
... his/her conduct / behavior / wrongdoing / etc.
... the (disappearance of the) funds / the failure of management / the delays / etc.
Not sure if that helps, but for what it's worth.
