I posted a couple of weeks ago about the DOJ’s decision to drop a voter-intimidation case–a case that had already been won–against the New Black Panther Party. Today, Congressman Frank Wolf (R-VA) is sending a letter to the DOJ Inspector General demanding a formal investigation of this matter. The letter is here.
Given that the independence of the Inspectors General seems to have been grievously compromised under the Obama administration, I’m afraid we can’t expect too much from this request for IG involvement.
J Christian Adams, the career DOJ attorney who resigned in protest over the handling of the New Black Panther matter, also asserts that DOJ is failing to enforce provisions of the “Motor-Voter” law which require states to periodically purge invalid voters from the rolls. WSJ:
Last year, Justice abandoned a case it had pursued for three years against Missouri for failing to clean up its rolls. When filed in 2005, one-third of Missouri counties had more registered voters than voting-age residents. What’s more, Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan, a Democrat who this year is her party’s candidate for a vacant U.S. Senate seat, contended that her office had no obligation to ensure individual counties were complying with the federal law mandating a cleanup of their voter rolls.
The case made slow but steady progress through the courts for more than three years, amid little or no evidence of progress in cleaning up Missouri’s voter rolls. Despite this, Obama Justice saw fit to dismiss the case in March 2009.
There is growing evidence that the behavior of the Obama administration, together with that of its congressional enablers, represents a serious threat to the integrity of the democratic process and to the liberties of all Americans.

There is a worse case coming up and it will be interesting to see what they do.
Brown canceled ballots cast by white voters. He stuffed the ballot box with illegal ballots supporting his preferred black candidates. He deployed teams of notaries to roam the countryside and mark absentee ballots instead of voters. He allowed forced assistance in the voting booth, to the detriment of white voters. He threatened 174 white voters by declaring that if they tried to participate in an election, he might challenge them and not let them vote. He publicized the 174 names.
Brown ran the primary elections because he is the Democratic Party chairman. At the trial, a woman on Brown’s list testified that she was too afraid to vote because she thought she might be arrested.
The federal court found that the publication of the list of 174 names was an illegal form of intentional racial discrimination. The United States district court held:
The question is whether Brown’s action with respect to this list of 174 voters was actuated by these party loyalty concerns or whether this was pretext for a true purpose to discourage white voters from coming to the polls, or some combination of the two. The court has carefully weighed the evidence and finds that while party concerns were a factor in Brown’s actions, race played a role as well. … In sum, the court is of the opinion that Brown had the names of these white voters published in part because of party loyalty concerns, but also as an attempt to discourage white voters from voting in the 2003 Democratic primary.
Isn’t it amazing to see the former victims acting exactly as their former tormenters did, once they get power ? It sounds almost like some psychology department study using students to abuse other students.
Michael Kennedy, some people aren’t interested in justice, only revenge.
“…the former victims acting exactly as their former tormenters did…”
It is not the same people. I don’t know of any African Americans who actually lived under Jim Crow who are doing these things. Just because those victims were Black and Eric Holder is Black does not mean that he has any “former tormenters.”
I have no reason to think that the people who actually, personally struggled for freedom approve of this abuse of power.
Be a splitter not a lumper.
Wonderful … at first I thought these clowns were just setting race relations back 40 years. Now it looks like they are aiming for 80 years.
The one thing I reasonably did hope from Obama was that last we could move past race, now. Guess that’s just one more hope crushed.
This has finally reached even the Washington Post.
Lexington, I don’t know if that is true. Reverend Wright is old enough to have experienced some bigotry although the military has been the least racially polarized American social group since the Vietnam War.
I grew up in Chicago and spent a lot of time with blacks when I was young. I had a black nursemaid who taught me about black anti-Semitism. She was a wonderful woman except for that. When I was 18, a friend and I hung out in a black bar at 67th and South Chicago Ave. We were the only whites in there and we had gotten to know the owner from being helpers on a beer truck during the summer. We used to drink and shoot bumper pool with the guys who hung out there. Even though everyone was drinking, I never felt any hostility.
Now, you are correct that the present generation of blacks seems much more angry than the generation I grew up with. Maybe, at that time, they were more comfortable with young whites who showed no signs of prejudice. That isn’t enough anymore. Now we must kow tow.
I had my first sexual experience with a black woman who was an LVN or nurses aide at a big downtown hospital. She had a sideline of educating white boys about the facts of life. I think she had as much fun as we did. I still remember the fear when I was in bed with her one night and her landlord came pounding at her door. She told me he had been “after her” for months. I thought, “What the hell am I doing here ?” Still, if I were 16 again, I would no more go near a black neighborhood than fly. It was not a big deal then.
We were far more comfortable with blacks than my kids seem to be now. One of my fellow surgery residents was black and had been student body president at UCLA as an undergrad. He laughed about it. He said, as long as he wasn’t a gangster, there was no way he could lose the election. His father was a Navy Captain in the medical corps. We had a lot of fun.
It’s sad to see things get worse.
