Former Justice Dept. atty charges Black Panther case was dropped for racial reasons

Do you remember coverage of three New Black Panther Party thugs, including one carrying a blackjack, "patrolling" a Philadelphia polling place on Election Day two years ago?

The Bush Justice Department, alleging voter intimidation, charged the goons. The government won the case by default--the trio didn't show up in court. By this time Eric Holder was attorney general--and Obama was president--and the Justice Department dropped the charges against the them.

J. Christian Adams, a former attorney for the department says he was ordered to dismiss the case by two Holder political appointees. He says it was done for racial reasons.

A GOP Congress will have plenty to investigate should the Republicans prevail in November.
