Congressman Frank Wolf (R-VA) – Today’s Hero

Glenn Fine, the inspector general for the U.S. Dept. of Justice by now, has received the following letter from Congressman Wolf. Accompanying the letter is a complete file of largely ignored correspondence regarding the infamous “Black Panther” case and its subsequent dismissal by the Justice Department.

As ranking member of the committee which controls the appropriations for the Justice Department, Wolf has a voice which the department should heed. In consideration of response to prior communications that does seem unlikely. It’s hard to answer mail while your busy sweeping issues under the rug.

Our thanks go to Roger L. Simon at Pajama's Media  for the original posting.

"July 14, 2010

Mr. Glenn Fine
Inspector General
U.S. Department of Justice
950 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington DC 20530

Dear Mr. Fine:

In light of the recent testimony of Mr. J. Christian Adams before the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights (USCCR), we urge you again to investigate the dismissal of U.S. v. New Black Panther Party. Over the last year, we have asked you on multiple occasions to investigate this matter to no avail. In light of the mounting evidence of improper activities in the department’s Civil Rights Division (CRD), we urge you again to immediately initiate an investigation into this matter.

There is something rotten happening at the department under your watch. Your continued refusal to investigate has been — and remains — inexcusable. One can only surmise that your failure to investigate stems from a fear of upsetting the department’s senior political leadership, some of whom could be directly tied to the dismissal of this case. However, as inspector general, you have a legal and moral obligation to go wherever truth takes you."

(For the balance of the letter, Mr. Simon’s blog and the pithy comments simply click here.)

There is little likelihood that Mr. Fine will react to this letter with any ethical position. The current corruption in the Justice Department is so ingrained that it reaches into each and every nook and cranny including the Inspector General charged with maintaining those ethics. God help us all!

In His abiding love,

Cecil Moon
