Posted on 01/11/2010 11:31:27 AM PST by William Tell 2
Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va.) continues to try get answers from the Obama Justice Department about a voter intimidation case in Philadelphia. The incident which occurred during the 2008 presidential election was summarily dismissed by Eric Holder's office. He has stonewalled efforts to learn why ever since.
Mr. Wolf took his case to the House Judiciary Committee. He has introduced a measure that would require the committee to deal with the issue.
He also announced that he had language inserted in the annual spending bill that funds the Justice Department requiring that its Office of Professional Responsibility ...

I saw the video of these two idiots, but what I don’t get is how were they actually intimidating anyone? They stood there, and, from what I saw, basically did nothing. I think they only spoke to those who spoke to them. Is there something more that they did?
Yes, look up the volumes of reports about it.
I didn’t say “so what”. I didn’t make a statement at all. I asked a question: did these guys do anything other than just stand in front of a polling station? Did they speak to anyone, tell anyone how to vote, threaten anyone, or tamper with the vote? Something tells me you’re not the guy to get the info from, so anyone else?
Not in so many words, but your comment sends that message, even if unintended.
Correct posting, I will ask the original to be removed:
They intimidated people in the same why that two neoNazi thugs might have intimidated people by standing in front of a polling station.
Imagine the uproar that would have occurred if that had happened.
BTW, the guy who recommended charging them, Christopher Coates, has been removed from his job and reassigned from Washington to South Carolina.
This case should have you outraged instead of implying a ‘so what. attitude.
“Correct posting” = Corrected posting,
If domenad is a conservative ...- well now you know why the movement is in trouble.
I’ve been working on this case since Day 1 when I refuted the two Philadelphia Inquirer reporters who were trying to minimize the significance of the event during an Election Night news conference with McCain’s attorney.
I was the first to report it was dropped last year.
There is nothing more aggravating to me, Wolf, Lamar Smith, Hans von Spakavsky at Heritage, Seper at the WashTimes and some at the Justice Department than the lack of reaction by the “conservative” media and conservatives in general to this.
Somebody once said, in England a century or so ago, that Conservatives were the stupid party. I’m beginning to believe it.
Domenad’s post pretty much confirms it.
Yeah...just like a scene from Sesame Street with Big Bird and Grover.
Do you really believe that no one was intimidated by seeing these goons trying to look all heavy and bad, at the place where they have to go and vote?
I can't believe you or anyone else could be that dumb, not to recognize the intimidation that was taking place.
I have to believe you have some other agenda that overrides common sense...like virtually all of liberalism.
They intimidated voters.
They stood there.
Inside the booth?
No, just outside the building. And they looked at me.
Blocking the door?
No, off to the side and silently.
Did they say anything or do anything? ANYTHING AT ALL?
They stood there and looked and I was afraid to go in.
So, now that we know who the men and who the crying bitch-made nancies are, I'll ask one last time: Did these guys do anything besides stand in front of a building?
You apparently think that what those goons did was cool and they were just friendly guys that just happened to be there...maybe on their way home from Bible School or helping an elderly lady cross the street.
Seems like you're trying to be Mister Macho...not every voter is as big, bad and brave as you and some voters were intimidated.
Why else do you think that Obama admin. and especially Holder are stonewalling and trying to cover it up?
The ease with which you buy into the liberal version amazes me.
It's not about being macho, tough, big or bad. What kind of person will be intimidated from a voting booth? I know 90 year old grandmothers who would tell Freddy Kruger to get the hell out of the way and why don't you pull your pants up and lose the stupid glove, you moron.
If you can't figure that out, there's not a whole lot of hope for you, no matter how many 90-year old ladies you know that wouldn't be intimidated.
It looks very much like you are trying to shill for the liberals but trying to keep it low key enough to get in "under the radar". Otherwise you'd let them try to make their own point.
It may not mean much to you, but it sure has Eric Holder worried...to the point of stonewalling..and he doesn't apparently know any 90-year olds to come to his defense.
