BTW

Sherrod. New Black Panthers. Limbaugh and reparations. Beck and Obama's "deep-seated hatred for white people...". Too naive to understand what's in play here?

This might help.

Then again, might not.

I'll tell you what. I'm going to pay a white homeless guy to stand in front of a polling place with a billy club next november. If Black Panthers can do it and get away with it, white hobos should be able to as well. After all, Eric Holder isn't racist, right?

Not to pick nits, but it was the New Black Panther party, not the Black Panther party. Similar names; totally different groups.

Just saying.

Note that not too long after these goofballs showed up, someone called the cops to report it. Philly's finest quickly arrived, arrested the moron with the billy club and told the other guy to take a hike.

Not sure that'd be called getting away with much of anything, but hey, what do I know?

Oh and remember there is a difference between a criminal and a civil matter. Bush's DOJ considered criminal charges, but didn't bring any because the facts were way too light. So they brought a civil suit instead. That resulted in the issuance of an injunction against the clown with the billy club.

So basically, in the civil suit, the DOJ nailed one black defendant, but dismissed the other black defendant. From the civil suit.

Racism? Give me a break.

If video evidence of a crime is a fact that's "too light" to prosecute, why the fuck are all these red-light cameras going up?

A criminal charge of voter intimidation requires an intimidated voter.

And the DOJ couldn't find a voter who had been intimidated by these clowns.

Couldn't find an intimidated voter, or didn't try?

As I said earlier, the defendant defaulted by not showing up to court. It's a slam dunk for any DOJ attorney, so why drop the case?

That's why members of Congress, as well as former DOJ attorneys are now calling for an independent investigation of the DOJ.

Why drop the case? Go reread Mirengoff's piece at Power Line. He explains why.

You do realize this thing is being investigated all to hell right now, do you not?

Here's a take on it from Abigail Thernstrom, not exactly a flaming lefty.

Personally, I hope the wingers keep flogging this thing senseless.

And I'm pretty sure Vince Foster had nothing to do with it.

I do realize it's being investigated, and it should be. I guess Bull Bartle doesn't count as an intimidated voter, but he's a hell of an eye-witness.


Bull Bartle – who worked for both Robert F. Kennedy and Jimmy Carter – was an eyewitness to some of the intimidation, and charged that Attorney General Eric Holder’s decision not to pursue the case was "100 percent politically motivated."
