Video: DOJ lawyer who quit over voter-intimidation case speaks

It would appear that the political appointee running the Department of Justice’s Civil Rights division has decided that only whites will be prosecuted for civil rights violations. Remember the viral video from election day 2008 of Black Panthers blocking a polling place in Pennsylvania? Meet J. Christian Adams, the DOJ attorney responsible for prosecuting them. He brought suit and, thanks to the Panthers’ refusal to answer the charges, obtained an order of default against them. All that was left to do was to enter a judgment and proceed to sentencing — except that, at the last minute, Adams’s supervisors told him to dismiss the case (which, I emphasize, he’d already won).

Here’s round two with Mr. Adams. In the words of Mr. Mugatu, I feel like I’m taking crazy pills!
