J. Christian Adams was the first to bring this story to the forefront after he resigned his position at the Department of Justice over the Black Panther voter intimidation case. The mainstream media has since ignored it until the Washington Post decided to finally investigate what happened. Through interviews with other DOJ officials, the Post corroborated what J. Christian Adams has been saying for months:
“There are career people who feel strongly that it is not the voting section’s job to protect white voters,” the lawyer said. “The environment is that you better toe the line of traditional civil rights ideas or you better keep quiet about it, because you will not advance, you will not receive awards and you will be ostracized.”
When I told my husband that the WaPo confirmed what J. Christian Adams and Christopher Coates had been saying all along, he just shook his head in disbelief. While he knew of the controversy, he just didn’t want to believe that the Department of Justice actually employed a race litmus test when it came to protecting people’s voting rights.
Since the WaPo has published this story, will it be picked up by the leftist paper of record, The New York Times, as well as other leftist propaganda rags? I think we all know the answer to that, particularly since we’ve got a very important mid-term election coming up in only a matter of days.
But Darrell Issa can add this to his growing list of things to investigate.
Breitbart is all over this and has a lot more in his report at Big Journalism.
