(UPDATED 09.24.10) ORIGINAL POSTING 30 JUN 10 – VOTER INTIMIDATION CHARGES DROPPED BY THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT (repost with update 051710)
I have to admit, I really was not really up on this issue so I had to do some research on the subject and I was astounded at what I found. The Justice Department Staff Attorneys have been working on this since it occurred this last Presidential election and have been pursuing charges against those who engaged in voter intimidation, especially in Philly where the video was shot. I want to know how Eric Holder, the Attorney General can let this matter drop when he stated that if he were confirmed as Attorney General, he would learn and rely on the experience and knowledge of these very talented people in the performance of his duties. It appears here in this case that he has totally disregarded the facts in favor of the political solution rather than the criminal prosecution solution. WHY? Well, from all outward appearances, the answer is obvious. The fact that our Representatives are allowing this to happen speaks volumes to me. Why are they silent? We all know why………. Click the pic to go to the video and determine for yourself if you feel that voter intimidation occurred at the polling station. Also click HERE for a link to a very telling back story on the New Black Panther Party and determine for yourself if this organization is above-board and none racist.
MY LETTER TO MY REPS:
I am saddened and concerned to learn that the Justice Department under Attorney General Eric Holder’s direction has dropped the investigation into the New Black Panther’s voter intimidation case in Philadelphia. I have seen the video and read the information and I fail to see how the Staff Career Attorneys were over-ruled on this matter. Lets put the shoe on the other foot here. What if another notorious group, such as the KKK had engaged in this type of activity? I think the final outcome would be incredibly different. These men in this black radical group engaged in patently illegal behavior and they were barely slapped on the wrist and were taken off the hook on this. As my Elected Representative, I demand that you do not let this issue drop. Like the old saying, “Perception is Everything”. Your inaction on this would lead us to believe that you condone this activity. I for one cannot support someone who does not stand up for voter rights where ever it occurs and lets criminals off the hook by not vigorously pursuing criminal convictions on all people or organizations who engage in this activity.
