GOP May Probe Panthers, Sestak Offer
My Fox Philly ^ | 11/3/2010

Posted on 11/04/2010 5:40:18 PM PDT by Born Conservative

The new leaders in the U.S. house may open official investigations into the New Black Panthers case and President Obama’s job offer to Joe Sestak.

On the day after the GOP took control of the House, two Republican leaders openly critical of Obama will have subpoena power as the heads of two powerful House committees.

Lamar Smith of Texas will oversee the House judiciary committee and Darrel Issa of California will chair the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

Both men have been critical of the Justice Department’s handling of the New Black Panthers voter intimidation case in Philadelphia, and the alleged attempt by the Obama administration to get Sestak to drop out of a primary race against Arlen Specter.

And now both men will have the power to compel people to testify before Congress.

Smith, in particular, was a driving force in getting the Justice Department to investigate the New Black Panther incident that happened in Philadelphia in 2008.

The political Web site Talking Points Memo thinks that Tuesday’s second incident of a New Black Panther member appearing at the same polling location could open the door for another investigation.

Looks like Eric Holder may be getting some face time in front of a House investigative hearing.

THere are a tremendous amount of breaches of security from the White House on down that need to be investigated. We need a revitalized House Internal Security Committee to start digging into the red pile of crap that Obama has brought into the government.

Agree! I also like your profile summary. It expresses my sentiments to a tee!

I’d like to know who was joyriding on that plane that buzzed New York City.

Note to the GOP: Look into the Lockerbie bomber deal while you're at it.

They need to have hearings about Harrah’s, SEIU and Harry Reid while they are at it.

You can bet the Rangel/Waters corruption will be whitewashed before the Republicans take power...

With no oversight in Chicago or during obama’s first two years I'm sure the anointed one’s crimes have been committed in a very sloppy manner. These investigations should be very productive and great fun to watch. Break out the popcorn.

“...new leaders in the U.S. house MAY open official investigations...”

If they turn spineless, they’re toast, too.

I’d like to add Barney Frank to the probe list. Just ignore the visuals that flash through your mind. :)

That’s music to my ears. I only wish one of them would open an investigation into Obama’s Birth Certificate.

Screw this penny-ante crap.

1) Full audit of all Obama campaign contributions for the 2008 election.

2) Long form BC subpoena.

3) Unexpurgated White House visitor list.

4) All White House communications with George Soros and associates.

5) Any pre-inauguration communications with any foreign governments.

6) GM dealership closure choice documentation.

7) FRAUDULENT USE OF OR FAILURE TO DISCLOSE ALIASES IN OFFICIAL DOCUMENTATION

8) NSA Background checks of all White House appointees, present and past.


Frowning takes 68 muscles.
Smiling takes 6.
Pulling this trigger takes 2.
I'm lazy.
