Michelle Malkin on New Black Panther CaseMichelle Malkin has been covering (here and here) the Department of Justice's decision on the Philadelphia New Black Panther Party alleged voter intimidation case.
She writes, "According to a legal source familiar with DOJ procedures, dismissing a lawsuit won by default is unheard of."
Michelle mentioned Project 21 Chairman Mychal Massie's call for a special counsel, writing:
Project 21's Mychal Massie wants an investigation: "From all accounts, this was a clear-cut violation of peoples' right to vote without fear and intimidation, but the Obama Administration appears to be trying to sweep it under the rug," said Massie. "After all of the allegations about the Bush Administration politicizing the Justice Department, this smacks of either extreme ignorance or extreme hubris on the part of their successors. Whatever the case, an independent investigation is needed to get to the bottom of what's going on over there."Michelle has a copy of the full affidavit of one of the eyewitnesses in this case. She has a link to a PDF of it in this post.
Mychal's press statement can be read here.
