Justice Department Accused of Supporting Anti-Zimmerman Protests After Martin Shooting

The Justice Department has spent tax dollars supporting a campaign against George Zimmerman following the shooting of Trayvon Martin, Fox News reports, citing a conservative watchdog group.

The Justice Department has a branch, called the Community Relations Service, that handles conflicts over race.

According to documents cited by Fox News, the CRS agency filed a series of expenses related to late March and early April demonstrations.

One filing, for $674, shows federal officials went to a Sanford, Fla, to “work marches, demonstrations and rallies related to the shooting and death of an African-American teen by a neighborhood watch captain.”

A Justice Department spokesman said the CRS was “fulfilling their mandated mission.”
