As we’ve sought to explain over recent weeks, the US Attorney Purge story connects to another extremely important story — the way the Bush administration has moved, on political and legal fronts, to use bogus ‘vote fraud’ claims to depress (particularly minority) voter turnout. At least two of these US Attorneys were canned because they wouldn’t make themselves partisan tools in that effort. Now ex-DOJ officials are coming forward to explain how Bush administration appointees at DOJ have been using their enforcement powers to shift election outcomes.
Definitely give this a look. There’s a lot more here.
