    quote-

    At a hearing before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights on May 14, 2010, Perez was asked by Commissioner Peter Kirsanow whether “any political leadership [was] involved in the decision not to pursue this particular case.” Perez’s answer, on page 79 of the transcript of that hearing, is an uncategorical “No.” When the statements of Perez are compared to the documents that Judicial Watch forced DOJ to release in the FOIA lawsuit, it is clear Judge Walton was polite when he said they are contradictory and “cast doubt on the accuracy” of Perez’s account.

    According to the court, the DOJ documents, including emails from former Associate Attorney General Thomas Perrelli (who was the number-two official at DOJ) and former Democratic election lawyer and Deputy Associate Attorney General Sam Hirsch, “revealed that political appointees within DOJ were conferring about the status and resolution of the New Black Panther Party case in the days preceding the DOJ’s dismissal of claims.”

    is that more clear and substantial? and just aside from that, what the heck would they be conferring ON or over? the color of the Nationals new uniforms?

    Do you really need it?
    You have heard the expressions - "where this is smoke - there is fire"? or how about "you don't need someone to tell you this stinks...when something smells fishy...you just know it".

    Could interference be proved in court? Doubt it.
    Do you need the same level of proof to get past common sense? No...you don't.
    There were so many laws, SERIOUS laws broke by the black panthers when this happened - that you would have to be a fool or a partisan bat to not see political influence all over this thing.
    Had this been the south, had this been white supremacist wearing military-style clothing - shiiit...Obamas camp would have been all over it and the Aryan boys would have been hung by their balls.

    I saw the evidence presented and did not see how what they did was politically motivated.
    I did some intimidation, but i also wondered why the people did not stand up to the men and drive them out, I know they were poll watchers, but still, if it happened in my polling place iIwould never stand for their actions, and I would take immediate action to stop any aggressive behaivor by anyone.
    The DOJ under Bush did not prosecute and neither did Obama, but still the video does not show proof of voter intemidation to vote democrat only.

    Cool. So if a couple of redneck Klansmen show up to a predominately Black polling place this November in combat boots with billy clubs, we'll not hear a peep from you. Got it...
