Ex-Justice Lawyer Accuses Bosses of Ignoring White Voters’ Rights; Justice Calls Allegations “Baseless”

Former Civil Rights Division lawyer J. Christian Adams and the Justice Department are locked in a war of words over his allegations that his bosses ignored white voters’ rights when charges were dropped against members of the New Black Panthers in a voter intimidation case, the website Main Justice reported.

Allegations were that two members of the militant black group stood outside a Philadelphia polling place in November 2008 and intimidated white voters. One had a night stick.

The Justice Department last year dropped the case, citing lack of evidence and that one of the Black Panthers was a registered Democratic poll watcher.

“You’re supposed to be able to go vote without somebody with a weapon shouting racist slurs at you,” Adams said on Fox New Wednesday. “They said, ‘You’re about to be ruled by the black man, Cracker.’ They called people ‘white devils.’ They tried to stop people from entering the polls.”“It is not uncommon for attorneys within the department to have good faith disagreements about the appropriate course of action in a particular case, although it is regrettable when a former department attorney distorts the facts and makes baseless allegations to promote his or her agenda,” Justice Department spokeswoman Tracy Schmaler told Fox News in a written statement, according to Main Justice.
