A year ago I wrote about the Attorney General Eric Holder and the Department of Justice dismissing the case of voter intimidationagainst two members of the New Black Panthers.  At first, I blamed Holder for letting his cronies go without prosecution, but now the whole story is making more sense.

J. Christian Adams, a former Department of Justice attorney had worked in the Civil Rights Division where he had brought charges of violation of civil rights against Malik Zulu Shabazz and Jerry Jackson, two members of the New Black Panther group for voter intimidation.  Evidence against the two men included videotape of them brandishing night sticks and intimidating voters outside a Philadelphia polling place in 2008.

He had a strong case against the two men, but Attorney General Eric Holder refused to press the charges any further and both men were released and the case dropped.  As a result of the DOJ’s failure to support the prosecution of civil rights violators, Adams resigned from his position with the department.

And now… the rest of the story. …..
