    I knew you would cry about using FNC as my source, so I included video evidence of the crime. I can't imagine that you didn't know about this. Why not?

    A bit offtopic. I only see them at one polling place yet it says security patrols stationed at polling places. Looks like two idiots who got removed from a polling place.

    They committed a crime and the charges were dropped. Voter intimidation is a serious crime, or at least it should be in this day-n-age.

    Monica Goodling didn't go to jail, so I'm still waiting for Pete to back up his comments. Thanks, Pete.

    I purported that the Ensign invesitgation is a witch hunt. Pete says it's not. He says that Bush did worse. I asked for proof. He can't come up with it. Pete claimed that the Black Panther case didn't exist and called for documentation. I provided it. Since when are you a moderator?

    There is still an injuction against the armed panther. Ensign tried to bribe the husband of his mistress to cover up the affair. Theres obviously something there.

    But my overall opinion is that the law should be followed regardless of the political colour of the person or persons under investigation and that is not what has been going on for a long time. And that is my point. I dont care if the politician is right or left wing, but the same standard must be applied too all. I dont care if it is Obama himself or Kennedy (pre death) or McCain or Palin or Bush.. the law must be followed. Without that, then you are no better than a dictatorship based on nobles and other elitists where there is one standard for normal people and one standard for the ruling class.
    Wall Street Journal work for you?

    By JOHN FUND
    President Obama's Justice Department continues to stonewall inquiries about why it dropped a voter intimidation case against the New Black Panther Party.

    The episode—which Bartle Bull, a former civil rights lawyer and publisher of the left-wing Village Voice, calls "the most blatant form of voter intimidation I've ever seen"—began on Election Day 2008. Mr. Bull and others witnessed two Black Panthers in paramilitary garb at a polling place near downtown Philadelphia. (Some of this behavior is on YouTube.)

    One of them, they say, brandished a nightstick at the entrance and pointed it at voters and both made racial threats. Mr. Bull says he heard one yell "You are about to be ruled by the black man, cracker!"

    In the first week of January, the Justice Department filed a civil lawsuit against the New Black Panther Party and three of its members, saying they violated the 1965 Voting Rights Act by scaring voters with the weapon, uniforms and racial slurs. In March, Mr. Bull submitted an affidavit at Justice's request to support its lawsuit.

    When none of the defendants filed any response to the complaint or appeared in federal district court in Philadelphia to answer the suit, it appeared almost certain Justice would have prevailed by default. Instead, the department in May suddenly allowed the party and two of the three defendants to walk away. Against the third defendant, Minister King Samir Shabazz, it sought only an injunction barring him from displaying a weapon within 100 feet of a Philadelphia polling place for the next three years—action that's already illegal under existing law.

    An injunction that precludes him from doing what is already on the books as illegal? Boy, that really shows law and order.... and he only has to obey that law for 3 years, I'm impressed.

    Well you guys were saying everything was dropped. From the video I saw two idiots who got removed by the cops. Didnt see them telling people how to vote, keeping people out, assaulting people. I'm still waiting for those to be prosecuted for jamming phone banks, throwing out voter registrations, or robo calling certain people telling them election day has changed. They were removed.

    I'll have to remember that defense if I'm ever charged with a felony..... just don't show up.

    They are Black, Barry is Black (well, 1/2 Black), Holder is 1/2 Black..... and you don't see a pattern here?
