We deserve better representatives.
Democrat Congressman Brad Sherman (D-CA) said to his constituency that he didn’t know about the latest scandal from the Obama’s Department of Justice (DOJ) where they dropped the voting intimidation lawsuit against the racist group of New Black Panther Party because the new DOJ doesn’t want to prosecute black defendants to protect whites. Sherman blamed the leftwing media for not informing him.
“A California congressman who drew shouts of disbelief at a town hall meeting when he said he was unaware of the voter intimidation case involving the New Black Panther Party explained that the reason he hadn’t heard about the story was because his news sources didn’t cover it.”
“The nearly two-year-old case resurfaced this month when J. Christian Adams, who recently quit the Justice Department, lobbed accusations at his former superiors of instructing attorneys in the civil rights division to ignore cases that involve black defendants and white victims.
Adams’ allegations have led the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, which is investigating the Justice Department’s handling of the case, to plan a new round of subpoenas and call for a separate federal probe.”
“In the final days of the Bush administration, the radical group and three of its members were charged in a civil complaint with violating the Voter Rights Act in the November 2008 incident, and one, King Samir Shabazz, specifically was accused of brandishing what prosecutors called a deadly weapon.
The Obama administration won a default judgment in federal court in April 2009 when the Black Panthers didn’t appear in court to fight the charges. But the administration moved to dismiss the charges in May 2009.”
