The U.S. Department of Justice has finally found something to do.
Since investigating multiple fake scandals like the White House Benghazi cover-up and IRS targeting of conservatives seem so petty, Holders crew have been itching for something worthy to investigate.
A controversial float in the Norfolk Independence Day parade is just the ground-breaking case they were hoping for.
One of the floats included a zombie-like mannequin standing near an outhouse labeled Obama Presidential Library, Omaha World-Herald reported.
According to the World-Herald :
"The department sent a member of its Community Relations Service team, which gets involved in discrimination disputes, to a Thursday meeting about the issue. Also at the meeting were the NAACP, the Norfolk mayor and The Odd Fellows."
Dale Remmich said he created the float because he is upset with the presidents handling of the Veterans Affairs Department, and the mannequin was meant to depict himself, not President Obama.
The Independent Order of Odd Fellows, the group that organized the annual parade, said the float was registered as political satire and was one of the most popular at this years event. Remmich maintains the float was never meant to be racist, but rather an expression of free speech.
The state Democrats are outraged and when Democrats are outraged, well, then its a real scandal.

Thin skinned liberals.Where were they when Bush was being burned in effigy?
What are they going to do, arrest people for making fun of our Pres, because he’s a Negro? Give me a break.
You could make the same joke about Clinton, or quite honestly Bush, and I hope someone did.
Where’s Harry Truman when you need him? Heat, Kitchen - GET OUT!
Thou shalt not criticize our Dear Leader.
“Where were they when Bush was being burned in effigy?”
Carrying the gas cans?
That’s pretty flaky even for a banana republic.
So it was okay to have a Reagan mask at a rodeo but not an 0bama mask? This whole 0bama worship is downright scary.
On second thought, it was too big for that.
Poking fun at Obama is not allowed?
There was no crime there.
My great-great-grandfather was a charter member of the I.O.O.F. in a small town in Missouri in the 1850s. Since he died more than 100 years ago, I can’t ask him his opinion on this scandal. Of course in his day there were no “Presidential Libraries.” And Presidents did not enjoy a lifestyle that Louis XIV would have envied.
Louis XIV would envy most of our welfare queens, much less our grifter couple.
Looks like a job for the Tonton Macoutes.
Are you sure? Have you read all of the most recent Executive Orders?
The best way to deal with the perpetually offended is to ignore them and the new providers that sensationalize them
Baby Barackdoc is not amused by your reference.
“What are they going to do, arrest people for making fun of our Pres”
And this is the irony - this is the exact thing that the 1st Amend was made for - the speech part. Criticizing the political figures could be punished in and of itself. Exactly why the speech part of the 1A.
Idiots! There is nothing racist about an outhouse! Truth is every small town parade had one of these years ago and there was always a politicians name on there...I bet there are pictures out there of the same thing with...gasp...white politicians names on them...
It is act of treason to criticize Party Secretary.
It is late afternoon and Erich Honnecker is looking out the window on the west side of his office. “Good evening Mister Sun. Mister Sun? Mister Sun?”
“Screw you, I’m in the West!””
