Obama administration drops voter intimidation charges against Black Panthers

Washington Times- Associate Attorney General Thomas J. Perrelli, the No. 3 official in the Obama Justice Department, was consulted and ultimately approved a decision in May to reverse course and drop a civil complaint accusing three members of the New Black Panther Party of intimidating voters in Philadelphia during November's election, according to interviews.

The department's career lawyers in the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division who pursued the complaint for five months had recommended that Justice seek sanctions against the party and three of its members after the government had already won a default judgment in federal court against the men.

Front-line lawyers were in the final stages of completing that work when they were unexpectedly told by their superiors in late April to seek a delay after a meeting between political appointees and career supervisors, according to federal records and interviews.[...]


  1. This is scary stuff. I guess the Obama administration feels there is nothing wrong with this. I gues he plans on doing it next election.

    You can bet your bottom dollar that Barack Hussein Obama will NEVER accuse his fellow all Black Panthers of acting "stupidly" as he did when he called the moistly White Cambridge, Mass policemen of "acting stupidly"!
