We can all feel better now. For those of you who thought that their might have been some racism involved in the Department of Justice’s dropping of the New Black Panther the matter has been solved. According to an extensive investigation conducted by the Department of Justice—the Department of Justice did nothing wrong when it dropped the already won case of voter intimidation. I kid you not. The Justice Department expects us to believe that they did no wrong, because they said so.

Two members of the Voting Rights Division of the Justice Department, J Christian Adams and Christopher Coates, claim an institutional department bias against protecting the rights of Caucasian Americans.
Coates, former chief of the Justice Department’s Voting Section, and still a DOJ employee defied his bosses orders by testifying before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights last summer to discuss the reasons why the New Black Panther Voter intimidation case was dropped even though the Judge had ruled that the DOJ had already won the case.
Coates’ testimony was a shocking indictment of rampant racism against Caucasians in the Obama administrations Department of Justice. His testimony accused the administration of using race to determine which cases are prosecuted. Corroborating the testimony of J. Christian Adams, Coates testimony illustrates that the issue goes way beyond the New Black Panther case, the real issue is the organization charged with protecting civil rights is now a tool for increasing discrimination in the country.
But of course all that is over the Justice Department’s Office of Professional Responsibility (OPR) has concluded an investigation finding that politics played no role in the handling of the New Black Panther Party case, which sparked a racially charged political fight.
After reviewing thousands of pages of internal e-mails and notes and conducting 44 interviews with department staff members, the OPR reported that “department attorneys did not commit professional misconduct or exercise poor judgment” and that the voter-intimidation case against the Panthers was dismissed on “a good faith assessment of the law” and “not influenced by the race of the defendants.”
The OPR’s findings were released in a letter Tuesday to Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Tex.) that was signed by department attorney Robin Ashton.
The probe was an outgrowth of a political controversy over a 2008 voter-intimidation case against members of the New Black Panther Party. Some conservative lawyers, politicians and commentators have said that the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division improperly narrowed that case — part of broader allegations among conservatives that the Obama Justice Department has failed to protect the civil rights of white voters. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. and other Justice officials have strongly denied the charge.
Smith, the Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee will hold his own investigation. He said DOJ review “did not address the Civil Rights Division’s misguided policy of using racial considerations when determining whether to enforce voting rights laws. The Division should protect the voting rights of all Americans, regardless of race, gender, religion or political affiliation.”
Not necessarily Congressman Smith, we are dealing with progressives who found something in the Constitution calling for free heath care, you never know what other invisible sections of this founding document these folks see.
