In March, Mr. Bull submitted an affidavit at Justice's request to support its lawsuit.

    Then the Washington Times reported on July 30 that six career lawyers at Justice who had recommended continuing to pursue the case were overruled by Associate Attorney General Thomas Perrelli—a top administration political appointee. Thomas J. Perrelli was sworn in on March 12, 2009, as the Associate Attorney General of the United States*Department of Justice.*..

    Nice try, but totally wrong it was the Obama administration that dropped the suit.
    But Perrelli's not Black... so how could you be right?

    Must have been the merits of the case...

    Well glad to hear you think that ... . in 2012 .. .when the KKK stands in front of black voting polls .. . with nooses, I'm sure you will feel the very same way.

    I guess those that six career lawyers at Justice who had recommended continuing to pursue the case were overruled ........ didn't have any idea what they were talking about

    Was any voter intimidation found? What I find on a search says no. Seems to be more much ado about nothing.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    You are not making any sense. Why are you so afraid of stating your claim and making a case to back it up regarding this waste of taxpayer dollars?

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Re: Probe surrounding Wis. governor apparently growing

    Since the voting rights act was enacted in 1965, only a handful of cases under the act have been pursued by the Justice Department. According to AAG Perez, the Department has records of only three prior cases.[10]

    New Black Panther Party voter intimidation case - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    At the outset, let me emphasize with 18 respect to Section 11(b) decisions that these are hard 19 cases. Very few such cases have been brought. In 20 fact, we can find records of only three cases filed by
    21 the government under Section 11(b) since its 22 inception.
    23

    (snip)

    Here again, the Division front office 9 leadership declined to bring a voter intimidation case 10 in this matter. This is the matter referenced in a 11 recent GAO report that examined a number of cases 12 brought by certain sections of the Civil Rights 13 Division during the Bush administration.

    I think that was actually Councilman.

    They work off the same scripts, so its easy to make that mistake.

    Then you agree that if the KKK was to stand around black voting polls with nooses in one hand ... . that you would find nothing there either ?
