Eric Holder is at it again. After accusing America of cowardice in addressing race issues, Holder’s “Justice” Department dismissed a civil complaint of voter intimidation against the New Black Panthers. You probably remember this Election Day video:
In an exclusive story, The Washington Times reports:
The incident – which gained national attention when it was captured on videotape and distributed on YouTube – had prompted the government to sue the men, saying they violated the 1965 Voting Rights Act by scaring would-be voters with the weapon, racial slurs and military-style uniforms.
Career lawyers pursued the case for months, including obtaining an affidavit from a prominent 1960s civil rights activist who witnessed the confrontation and described it as “the most blatant form of voter intimidation” that he had seen, even during the voting rights crisis in Mississippi a half-century ago.
Holder spokesman Alejandro Miyar told the Times, we are “committed to the vigorous prosecution of those who intimidate, threaten or coerce anyone exercising his or her sacred right to vote.”
We at NG offer this clarification and modification for Spokesman Miyar and the brave political hacks in Obama’s Justice Department,
we are “committed to the vigorous prosecution of those who intimidate, threaten or coerce any
one DEMOCRAT exercising his or her sacred right to vote.”
