After millions of taxpayer dollars, and years of investigation, the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ) says all charges are dropped against the Bush DOJ for the firing of U.S. attorney David Iglesias, and nine other U.S. Attorneys. Iglesias was fired because New Mexico’s Republican party said he was “soft on voter fraud.” The final decision coming today is, firing an attorney for being soft on voter fraud is politically incorrect, but not criminal.
How incredible is that? Stopping voter fraud is politically incorrect? It backs up the testimony of a former DOJ attorney in the Obama regime, who has testified the current DOJ says they will not investigate voter intimidation or fraud because doing so will not increase voters!
Bush Attorney General Alberto Gonzales resigned over the incident in 2007:
“Evidence did not demonstrate that any prosecutable criminal offense was committed with regard to the removal of David Iglesias,” the Justice Department said in a letter to lawmakers Wednesday. “The investigative team also determined that the evidence did not warrant expanding the scope of the investigation beyond the removal of Iglesias.”
Prosecutors also said there was insufficient evidence to charge someone with lying to Congress or investigators.
Iglesias was fired after the head of New Mexico’s Republican Party, complained to the White House that Iglesias was soft on voter fraud. He asked that Iglesias be replaced so that the state could “make some real progress in cleaning up a state notorious for crooked elections.”
Alberto Gonzales has been on the hook for years, knowing that if there was any way possible, this DOJ would hang him. It’s sickening that our government will protect a U.S. attorney who refuses to investigate voter fraud and/or intimidation. The Obama DOJ lost this one, but there is a creeping lawlessness in that body and throughout the administration that bodes ill for November. Keep your powder dry, friends.
