Before the Philly New Black Panther Party radicals showed up at a voting booth in 2008 with billy clubs and racial epithets at the ready, my old nemesis Malik Shabazz — the NBPP thug-in-chief — put out a nationwide warning. Remember?
Well, NBPP official Quannell X in Texas says his militant minions will return…to monitor citizen election watchdogs.
Election Law Center says: Strap in.
And bring your cameras.
In related developments, the U.S. Civil Rights Commission was blocked from finalizing a report on DOJ’s obstructionism and politicization of the Philly NBPP voter intimdation case. A lone Democrat holdout stymied the panel:
Democratic member of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights walked out of the panel’s meeting Friday to block acceptance of a report critical of the Justice Department’s handling of a voting-rights investigation involving the New Black Panther Party.
Commissioner Michael Yaki Michael said the report, the product of a year-long inquiry into the 2008 case, was “cooked” by conservative members of the panel’s majority to “lay an indictment against the Obama administration.”
The commission’s inquiry centers on the actions of New Black Panther Party members — one armed with a club — who were videotaped outside a Philadelphia polling place. The Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, then under the Bush administration, filed a voter intimidation lawsuit against the party members. But much of the case was dismissed during the Obama administration.
The report on the Obama Justice Department’s actions criticizes the administration for refusing to cooperate with the commission review and for instructing some of its employees not to provide information to commission officials.
Commissioner Todd Gaziano said the Justice Department responses to requests for information represents “unprecedented stonewalling.”
