Racism in The Justice Department

It’s true, but this time it isn’t Whitey who’s letting people have a pass on hating, but the three Black Panther wannabes who were intimidating voters at a polling place back on November 4. Now, the Hussein administration, in the form of the Justice Department, has dismissed the charges against the three Blacks who were hurling racial insults, and wielding a weapon, in clear violation of the Voting Rights Act. Justice dismissed the charges even after the men were convicted, vacating the conviction, but failing to adequately explain the reasons why.

The department’s career lawyers in the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division who pursued the complaint for five months had recommended that Justice seek sanctions against the party and three of its members after the government had already won a default judgment in federal court against the men.

Front-line lawyers were in the final stages of completing that work when they were unexpectedly told by their superiors in late April to seek a delay after a meeting between political appointees and career supervisors, according to federal records and interviews.

The delay was ordered by then-acting Assistant Attorney General Loretta King after she discussed with Mr. Perrelli concerns about the case during one of their regular review meetings, according to the interviews.

Ms. King, a career senior executive service official, had been named by President Obama in January to temporarily fill the vacant political position of assistant attorney general for civil rights while a permanent choice could be made.


This is egregious- if the situation were reversed, you can be sure that the NAACP, and every other black group would be howling in outrage, but as we all know, these people are not for equal rights, just favoritism for their race. Hypocrisy rules the day. I guess, to them, two wrongs really do equal a right. What color is Mz. King? Should it matter? Of course not, but in light of this ridiculous decision, we might be excused for asking.

While the Obama administration has vowed a new era of openness, department officials have refused to answer questions from Republican members of Congress on why the case was dismissed, claiming the information was “privileged, according to congressional correspondence with the department.

Rep. Frank R. Wolf, Virginia Republican and a senior member of the House Appropriations Committee who has raised questions about the case, said he also was prevented from interviewing the front-line lawyers who brought the charges.

“Why am I being prevented from meeting with the trial team on this case? Mr. Wolf asked. “There are many questions that need to be answered. This whole thing just stinks to high heaven.”

Ms. Schmaler said the department has tried to cooperate with Congress. “The Department responded to an earlier letter from Congressman Wolf in an effort to address his questions. Following that letter, the Department agreed to a meeting with Congressman Wolf and career attorneys, in which they made a good-faith effort to respond to his inquiries about this case. We will continue to try to clear up any confusion Congressman Wolf has about this case.

Ms. King and a deputy are expected to travel to Capitol Hill on Thursday to meet behind closed doors with House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers Jr., Michigan Democrat, and Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas, the top Republican on the panel, to discuss continuing concerns about the case.


Oh great- John Conyers, the man who refused to investigate ACORN- do we really believe anything will be done on this? One would have to believe in “Ethics Fairies”, who would sprinkle dust on Rep. Conyers, who would then suddenly turn about and become honest, and would in good faith investigate this voter intimidation case. That’s not gonna happen, I can guarantee you.

Mr. Perrelli, a prominent private practice attorney, served previously as a counsel to Attorney General Janet Reno in the Clinton administration and was an Obama supporter who raised more than $500,000 for the Democrat candidate in the 2008 elections. He authorized a delay to give department officials more time to decide what to do, said officials familiar with the case but not authorized to discuss it publicly. He eventually approved the decision to drop charges against three of the four defendants, they said.

At issue was what, if any, punishment to seek against the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense (NBPP) and three of its members accused in a Jan. 7 civil complaint filed in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia.

Two NBPP members, wearing black berets, black combat boots, black dress shirts and black jackets with military-style markings, were charged in a civil complaint with intimidating voters at a Philadelphia polling place, including brandishing a 2-foot-long nightstick and issuing racial threats and racial insults. Authorities said a third NBPP member “managed, directed and endorsed the behavior.


Mr. Perrilli, by the way, is the #3 guy in the Justice Department, and the question becomes what did #1, or #2 in the Justice Department tell Mr. Perrilli? Especially in light of the default judgement that was rendered when these scumbags didn’t show- I guess that they felt that nothing would happen to them, since a Black man was in the White House.

It looks like they were right.

    Looks like a bunch of #2 all over.

    This was wrong no matter the color. The left went nuts when they thought there was voter intimidation in Florida. To this day they discuss stolen elections and voter intimidation.

    Not so much when we have real evidence of their own committing the crimes.

    Yes, there is hypocrisy beginning with the “Unindicted”- all the Dems (and there’s a LOT of them), like Conyers, Murtha, Dodd, Frank, Reid,- I could go on with the rest of the staff to the Resident, but they know who they are. Then there are the ancillary orgs. like moveon, ACORN, SEIU, and others, and like spirochetes they are burrowing deep.

    Hey, most of the government is crooked, especially since we now have Obama in there.
