New Records Show DOJ Lied About New Black Panther Dismissal
Judicial Watch made an explosive announcement today about the Justice Department’s stonewalling in the New Black Panther voter intimidation case dismissal. Forced to bring a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit after DOJ rebuffed its public records request (so much for transparency), Judicial Watch obtained a privilege log from the DOJ last week.
It shows — in a rather dramatic way — that the DOJ has been untruthful about who was involved in the dismissal of the case.
Republican Transparency in Florida
The American Spectator
TAMPA — A forensic audit released Friday by the Republican Party of Florida ties Florida Governor and independent Senate candidate Charlie Crist to thousands of dollars of Republican donors’ money spent not on party business but for Crist’s personal benefit. The same audit clears Crist’s main Senate opponent, conservative Republican Marco Rubio, of any wrongful spending.
The audit lays even more misspending at the feet of Jim Greer, Crist’s handpicked party chairman who was forced to resign in January and was indicted in March on six counts of grand theft and money laundering in connection to his dealings with RPOF funds.
