    Another voter fraud scandal involving the Justice Department. Adams, a former career Justice Department lawyer who resigned recently to protest political interference in cases he worked on, made some news yesterday in testimony before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. he claimed that Associate Attorney General Thomas Perrelli, an Obama appointee, overruled a unanimous recommendation by six career Justice attorneys for continued prosecution of members of the New Black Panther Party on charges of voter intimidation in an incident I detailed here yesterday.

    He held me in his arms when I was 3 weeks old. I am 56 now. There was a contest for the oldest mother with the youngest baby. Mom was 47. We came in second and won a GE roaster oven that still works today. He was a GREAT man. He was the first TV star to syndicate his own show and sell it to the networks. A lot of big stars owe him a lot. Glad he escaped the estate tax hike. Bravo Art!

And Obama's pick as deputy attorney general, the second most senior position, is the lawyer who oversaw the defense of the Copyright Term Extension Act--the...
