Last week, I reported on the Obama administration’s stonewalling of House efforts to investigate its decision to drop default judgments against New Black Panther Party thugs who menaced Philly voters on election day with nightsticks and racist epithets. Yesterday, I included the episode in my review of White House thuggery over the last six months.
Now, there’s new information about Department of (In)justice meddling with the New Black Panther Party voter bullying case. Jerry Seper at the Washington Times reports on the identity of the DOJ lawyer who
Associate Attorney General Thomas J. Perrelli, the No. 3 official in the Obama Justice Department, was consulted and ultimately approved a decision in May to reverse course and drop a civil complaint accusing three members of the New Black Panther Party of intimidating voters in Philadelphia during November’s election, according to interviews.
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.
No one should be surprised at such maneuvers under crime-coddling AG Eric Holder.
It’s more of the same old Culture of Corruption in the age of Obama.
