Someone defend this

Thomas J. Perrelli, a Messiah supporter who raised half a million bucks for the Obama '08 campaign, is the political appointee who overruled other Dept. of Justice officials and dropped the case against a couple New Black Panther Party idiots who clearly were engaged in voter intimidation in Philly back last November.

The government had already won the case.

It's hard to imagine a more clear-cut case of voter intimidation. Some GOP House members want more of an explanation from Attorney General Eric Holder. And here's the "best" part (at least to me) of the whole story thus far:

I'm sure you'll be stunned to learn that the sweetheart settlement Holder's Department gave these defendants does not require them to refrain from election activities. So of course Jackson, the alleged menacing racist who is also surprise! a Democrat Party operative, is right back in business again:

Mr. Jackson was an elected member of Philadelphia's 14th Ward Democratic Committee and was credentialed to be at the polling place Nov. 4 as an official Democratic Party polling watcher, according to the Philadelphia city commissioner's office. A check of his MySpace Web page shows similar taunts. It also shows him in numerous poses with a variety of weapons. Records show Mr. Jackson obtained new credentials as a poll watcher "at any ward/division in Philadelphia" just days after the charges against him were dismissed.

But remember: "Claims were dismissed against the other defendants based on a careful assessment of the facts and the law. The department is committed to the vigorous prosecution of those who intimidate, threaten or coerce anyone exercising his or her sacred right to vote."

I can just imagine the MSM 24-7 wall-to-wall coverage if the Bush DOJ had acted similarly regarding a couple of KKK nutjobs at a polling place in, say, Mississippi.
