Loretta King, a member of Holder's Justice Department, has been sanctioned again. The DOJ attorney has been personally fined for the department's lack of responsiveness to members of congress, among others, to inquiries into the dropping of charges against the New Black Panther Party. This case involves voter intimidation issues on Election Day, when cameras caught members of the New Black Panther Party holding jimmy clubs while standing outside a polling place in Philadelphia during the election of President Obama.
This is at least the second time that Ms. King has been sanctioned by the court. The first case involved "unconstitutional race-based districting". In this case, we the taxpayers, paid more than a half million dollars in fees. The federal court found her team "surprisingly blind to its own impropriety"
Ms. King was also involved in the recent case in Kinston, NC to overrule the voters’ wishes to forgo party affiliation to be listed on all local ballots. The DOJ put its nose into a local matter that was fairly settled by the voters of that community. Apparently, if democrats were not properly identified on the ballots, people of color voting rights were in jeopardy. Another word, people of color are stupid to know who to vote for unless they are able to see the D at the end of the name.
One of the most interesting things in this is the judge who came to this decision, a former counselor for the ACLU; hardly a right-wing ideologue. Members of congress, among others, are pushing the DOJ for the paperwork that show how the decision was made to drop the charges against the panthers. Holder's DOJ has been dragging its heels and refusing to turn over the paperwork, which is by all accounts, not subject to privilege.
Loretta King has a record of using her position in government to promote her far left views, and her own version of racial equality. A version that always falls on the side of the person of color, regardless of the law says. It is time that President Obama and Attorney General Holder put the law first, because this woman obviously does not.
