Corruptocrat Attorney General Eric Holder and the Obama Department of Social Justice are on the hot seat tomorrow over the New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case shenanigans. Long overdue.

To recap: I told you on Monday about the latest lies and obstructionism by the DO(S)J revealed in logs obtained through Judicial Watch’s Freedom of Information Act request. The US Commission on Civil Rights had previously asked for such a log, but DO(S)J refused to provide it. As the panel notes: “The existence of these communications is critical, especially in light of the fact that the Department has repeatedly maintained, including in testimony before the Commission by Assistant AG for Civil Rights Thomas Perez, that the decision to dismiss the case was made by career employees (who happened to be occupying political positions at the time) and not higher level political officials within the Department. The index renders those assertions questionable at best.” Judicial Watch has filed another suit for any records pertaining to meetings that DO(S)J official Thomas Perrelli attended at the White House during the time when the administration was abandoning most of the case.

Last week, I reported that DOJ Inspector General Glenn Fine will investigate the Obama DO(S)J’s voting rights record.

Tomorrow, former DOJ voting section chief Christopher Coates will testify before the Commission on Civil Rights in defiance of DOJ orders not to comply with a subpoeana.

C-SPAN will televise the hearing live at 10am tomorrow. On PJTV here.

Get the popcorn ready, ignore the Stephen Colbert circus, and keep your eye on the Culture of Corruption ball.

The truth will out.

Ed Morrissey at Hot Air zeroes in on Coates’ testimony in the Ike Brown case.

Update 11:00am Commission panelist pointing out that Judicial Watch logs show that criminal division of DOJ also involved in NBPP decision.

Update 11:19am Eastern: Commission panelist Todd Gaziano questions Coates about “culture of hostility” at Holder DOJ toward those who defended race neutral enforcement of voting rights laws.

Coates: A “travesty of justice.” Yep, that about sums up Eric Holder’s entire public career, doesn’t it?
