D.O.J. case dropped ... for racial reasons?

J. Christian Adams, now an attorney in Virginia, "is accusing Attorney General Eric Holder of dropping the charges for racially motivated reasons."

"I mean we were told, 'Drop the charges against the New Black Panther Party,'" Adams told Fox News, adding that political appointees Loretta King, acting head of the civil rights division, and Steve Rosenbaum, an attorney with the division since 2003, ordered the dismissal.

Adams claimed an unnamed political appointee said if somebody wants to bring these kinds of cases, "that's not going to de done out of the civil rights division."

Adams also accused Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez of lying under oath to Congress about the circumstances surrounding the decision to drop the probe.

The Justice Department has defended its move to drop the case, saying it obtained an injunction against one member to keep him away from polling stations while dismissing charges against the others "based on a careful assessment of the facts and the law."

But Adams told Fox News that politics and race was at play in the dismissal.

"There is a pervasive hostility within the civil rights division at the Justice Department toward these sorts of cases," Adams told Fox News' Megyn Kelly.

Adams says the dismissal is a symptom of the Obama administration's reverse racism and that the Justice Department will not pursue voting rights cases against white victims.

"In voting, that will be the case over the next few years, there's no doubt about it," he said. (Source.)

Sounds like perfect fodder for 2010 and 2012 campaign commercials, even if Adams' allegations can't be proven. Hell, it's just plain bad enough straight up that these thugs weren't prosecuted! But, you can bet that the MSM wwill be attacking those commercials 100 times more than it ever bothered to cover this case in the first place!
