    The Justice Department has blocked one of its civil rights analysts from dealing with all matters Mississippi after the employee apparently described the state as "disgusting and shameful" on Facebook -- comments that drew a rebuke Tuesday from Mississippi's secretary of state.
    Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann expressed concern about the remarks considering his state is going to have to submit its latest voter ID law to the Justice Department for review, and the employee in question works as an analyst in the division that reviews those laws.
    "A Justice Department employee stating our state is 'disgusting and shameful' is another indication Mississippi's voter ID submission will not receive fair consideration," he said in a statement. "The real problem is not the current culture of Mississippi, but the current culture of the Justice Department."
    Hosemann called the remarks "unprofessional, unwarranted, irresponsible, and misguided."
