You’ve probably noticed that J. Christian Adams, the former DOJ attorney, is making the rounds of Fox and CNN today whistle-blowing about the Obama DOJ’s refusal to bring voter intimidation cases against blacks over the New Black Panther case from election day 2008.

There’s a lot to say about this. And a lot to say about CNN going along with this claptrap. But in case you didn’t already know, Adams was one of the attorneys US Attorney firing scandal luminary Bradley Schlozman hired when he was purging the Civil Rights Division of female, minority and non-right wing attorneys and replacing them with “good Americans.”

Basically, Adams was one of the guys who got in during the bad old days when the crooks and bamboozlers then running the DOJ were purging career attorneys and replacing them with right-wing activists like Schlozman himself. And remember, Schlozman’s role at the Bush DOJ was getting US Attorneys to bring bogus ‘vote fraud’ cases to further the effort to suppress minority and low-income voter turnout.

How soon they forget.
