Inspector Gen. Probing Justice Dept. Enforcement of Voter Rights

The Justice Department’s Inspector General is probing allegations that the agency’s civil rights division was racially discriminatory when it came to enforcing voting laws, the Washington Post reported.

The Post reports that the probe grows out of a voter intimidation case from 2008 in which members of the New Black Panther Party were charged with intimidating white voters in Philadelphia.

The members videotaped voters in front of the polling place, dressed in military-style uniforms who allegedly yelled out racial slurs. The Obama Justice Department eventually abandoned the case, triggering an outcry from conservatives that the Obama administration had failed to protect the rights of white voters.

The Post reported that Inspector General Glenn Fine wrote a letter to Congressional members saying he wasn’t investigating the New Black Panther case specifically but was instead looking into how the Justice Department enforces voting rights laws.
