Over at The Washington Post we have an article in the Friday paper on the Justice Department and how it has dealt with the alleged voter intimidation in Philly in the 2008 General Election. The title of the article is "Dispute over New Black Panthers case causes deep divisions".
Per the WashPost the case against the alleged perps is not quite as clear-cut as some have suggested, but still, as a voting citizen, I am not happy with the attitude I am hearing exists in the Department of Justice regarding this issue. I count on the DOJ to be honest and to clean up its act when it finds that it has stumbled. I was heartened when the new Attorney General, Eric Holder, told us we needed an honest conversation about race in this nation. The conduct of this investigation does not encourage me that we are heading in the proper direction.
