Your corrupt DOJ-gives-another-corrupt Democrat-a-pass story of the day

Let’s see. Corruptocrat Attorney General Eric Holder gave the New Black Panther Party thugs a pass. And he gave pay-for-play corruptocrat Bill Richardson a pass.

Who’s the lucky winner today?

Democrat Rep. Alan “Cheat River” Mollohan of West Virginia.

You may recall that he was forced to step down from the House Ethics Committee four years ago in the wake of publicity over his shoddy financial disclosure forms and a National Legal and Policy Center complaint documenting shady real estate dealings.

Holder waved his magic wanded and ended a DOJ probe of the cesspool today. Poof:

The Justice Department has shuttered its nearly four-year investigation into the personal finances of Rep. Alan Mollohan (D-W.Va.), freeing the 14-term lawmaker to pursue what could be a tough bid for reelection without the lingering cloud of a federal criminal probe.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia had been overseeing an investigation of Mollohan, a senior member of the House Appropriations Committee, for steering roughly $250 million in line-item expenditures to several nonprofit organizations run by close friends, who also were real estate partners with him.

Mollohan’s office was notified this month that the investigation had been closed without criminal charges filed. Federal prosecutors declined to elaborate on what the investigation had found.

“We’re not going to get into any details, but I can confirm we’ve closed the investigation into Alan Mollohan,” Ben Friedman, spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office, said Monday evening.

Mum’s the word.

Doctor Zero: “If Eric Holder’s not going to investigate anything, how about a spending freeze for the DOJ?”

Seconding that!
