Incredible, political appointees overrule the Justice lawyers... EXCLUSIVE: Career lawyers overruled on voting case - Washington Times Career lawyers pursued the case for months, including obtaining an affidavit from a prominent 1960s civil rights activist who witnessed the confrontation and described it as "the most blatant form of voter intimidation" that he had seen, even during the voting rights crisis in Mississippi a half-century ago. The lawyers also had ascertained that one of the three men had gained access to the polling place by securing a credential as a Democratic poll watcher, according to interviews and documents reviewed by The Washington Times. The career Justice lawyers were on the verge of securing sanctions against the men earlier this month when their superiors ordered them to reverse course, according to interviews and documents. A Justice Department spokesman on Thursday confirmed that the agency had dropped the case, dismissing two of the men from the lawsuit with no penalty and winning an order against the third man that simply prohibits him from bringing a weapon to a polling place in future elections. Gee, that will teach him, you can not bring weapons to any future polling places......... CHANGE YOU CAN BELIEVE IN!!!!!! I wonder if the same people who cried about US Attorney firings, will say anything about this?
