Now, you have got to ask the following question: Would Thomas J. Perrelli have done the same thing if, all other things being equal, the three men intimidating voters were white instead of black?
From the Washington Times:
|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.
First, the case was delayed in April after Assistant Attorney General Loretta King discussed her concerns with Mr. Perrelli about the case.
There is no word about how high in the government this decision came from.
Does anyone here think this reversal would have happened if the men in the above picture were white?
