    House panel rejects Panther resolution

    House panel rejects Panther resolution

    The Democrat-controlled House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday rejected by a 15-14 vote a resolution of inquiry that would have forced the Justice Department to tell Congress why it dismissed a civil complaint against members of the New Black Panther Party who disrupted a Philadelphia polling place in the November 2008 election.

    The party-line vote had been sought by Rep. Frank R. Wolf, Virginia Republican, who, along with Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas, ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, said they have been unable to get information from the department on the complaint's dismissal.

    "I am deeply disappointed that the Judiciary Committee defeated my resolution of inquiry on a party-line vote. There has been no oversight, no accountability and certainly no transparency with regard to this attorney general and this Department of Justice," Mr. Wolf said.

    "Where is the 'unprecedented transparency' that this administration promised? Where is the honesty and openness that the majority party pledged? The American people deserve better," he said.

    The 15 Democrats, led by Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers Jr. of Michigan, sent the resolution to the House floor with an adverse recommendation, voting it "unfavorably" out of committee. They described the Philadelphia polling disruption as an "isolated incident" that received sufficient punishment when the New Black Panther Party member who carried a nightstick was barred from carrying weapons at polling places in the future.

    Rep. Dan Lungren, California Republican, described the dismissal of the complaint as "a denial of justice" and Rep. Robert W. Goodlatte, Virginia Republican, said the resolution was an attempt to hold the Justice Department accountable to Congress.

    Mr. Wolf said that after ignoring seven letters over seven months seeking information on the case and failing to comply with subpoenas from the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, he decided to seek the resolution. He said Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. continues to "thwart all efforts to compel an explanation for the dismissal."
    ?

    A man threatens voters with grevious bodily harm, and the Democrats, who he supports, claim he was punished enough by being forbidden from carrying weapons at polling places in the future?

    And that the case was dismissed by the Obama Justice Department AFTER he was convicted, so that only sentencing was required, that doesn't deserve a full investigation?

    Typical Democrat double dealing false fronted reverse racism going on here.

    Our nation used to be a nation of law. That isn't working too well under one party rule.

    This one is ridiculously ****ed up! It's clearly a case of treason. You couldn't look at the evidence and claim that there shouldn't at the very least be an investigation. At the very least. Because there was race based/political party based voter intimidation. Hands down. And that **** cannot be permitted to exist. One of the few statements of absolute I'll make. The other is that Asuka>>>>All.

    In every election there is messed up stuff like this happening at the polls that just gets smoothed over. If it's not the electronic polling system, it's the people themselves.

    I wish those guys would stand outside a voting station where I live. The government wouldn't even have to bother fixing the situation.

    I wish there was a way to ensure no screwing with the voting system was possible.

    Why would this need to be smoothed over? Is Barack Obama a secret member of the black panthers?

    I find it disheartening that these thugs weren't forcibly removed by a mob of angry citizens. Americans are losing their nerve.

    I'm not saying that it needs to be smoothed over, just that it will be. Look at how it's already NOT been dealt with.
