Obama Official to Testify in New Black Panther Party Investigation

by Roger Clegg

NRO has published a number of stories by Hans von Spakovsky and Andy McCarthy about the Obama administration’s dismissal of the New Black Panther Party voter-intimidation case. In a dramatic development, Chris Coates, the former chief of the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division of the Justice Department, is going to testify tomorrow before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights about this case and other allegations of racially biased enforcement policies at the Division under the Obama administration. The repercussions for the administration if Coates confirms the prior testimony of former Voting Section lawyer Christian Adams could be huge.
